No laughing matter for top actress Jamie Lee Curtis

By Laura Harding

Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed she ruined so many takes by laughing in classic comedy A Fish Called Wanda that she now causes herself pain to keep a straight face in funny scenes.

Curtis starred opposite John Cleese, Kevin Kline and Michael Palin in the caper.

"Kevin Kline doesn't speak to me because I ruined so many takes so I have developed a trick," she said. "I have a pin or a toothpick between my fingers and I push really hard so I won't laugh. You will see my hands out of the frame pushing so hard."
