Kate Beckinsale: I felt bad for Farrell in sex scenes

Kate Beckinsale says filming sex scenes with co-star Colin Farrell "was worse" for him.

The actress stars with the Irish heartthrob in upcoming film Total Recall and dished to Britain's Women's Health magazine about their more intimate moments on camera.

The movie is directed by Kate's husband Len Wiseman which made things even more challenging.

"I think it was worse for Colin," she told the publication. "It's awkward if you have to fondle the director's wife. Especially with Len saying, 'All right, that's it, you're fired.'"

Kate plays Colin's wife and has to deal with her factory worker husband who experiences weird and violent dreams.

But despite having to make out with Colin in front of her husband of nearly eight years as the camera rolled, she only had great things to say about her co-star.

"He's lovely," she gushed. "He's such a good actor, really professional and a brilliant dad. There's nothing bad you can say about Colin - and he's funny as well. I hate him!"

The 38-year-old actress also revealed why she doesn't "do Twitter or Facebook."

"I like to be able to reserve the right to complain about people bothering me in my private life," she explained.
