Malin Akerman: I can strip with teeth

Malin Akerman insists she's a "pro at taking off leather pants with [her] teeth" following her steamy love scene with Tom Cruise.

The actress stars alongside the Hollywood hunk in Rock of Ages. Malin plays a music journalist, while Tom portrays rock god Stacee Jaxx.

The two share a heated sex scene in the musical movie, which Malin has joked improved her seduction skills no end.

"We were very close to very personal parts. But it was well-choreographed and we had dress rehearsal to figure out just how we were going to do this. It all worked out just fine," she told USA Today.

"And apparently I'm a pro at taking off leather pants with my teeth!"

Malin says the raunchy scene didn't faze Tom. The blonde star has joked it paled in comparison to the action star's notorious big-screen stunts.

"He didn't say anything," she laughed. "I think he trusted me. And I was careful not to do anything, well, to make him not trust me. It was all fine. We made sure all the positions were proper.

"I did say, 'Well, I just don't want to hurt anybody.' But he's such a game-on guy. He jumps off buildings. So it's like a little leather in my teeth is not going to hurt anybody."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


A pragmatist like you prefers to rely on facts and figure to make decisions. The hard data you want will not be available, forcing you to rely on your intuition. You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
