Hayek: I didn't want to kiss Kevin

Salma Hayek has confessed she felt terrible about kissing Kevin James in new film Here Comes The Boom because she is such good friends with his wife.

The pair - who have become close friends since they first worked together on the 2010 comedy Grown Ups - play teachers in the action comedy about a high school teacher, played by Kevin, who turns to cage fighting to raise money to save the music department.

Salma revealed of their kissing scene: "I wanted a double, because I'm really good friends with his wife and children. I mean, I've been kissing people on screen all the time, but we're good friends and the kids are good friends. It was the strangest thing... He's actually a very good kisser!"

She added: "It was through a fence, nobody opened their mouth. But he does have good lips..."

Meanwhile, 47-year-old Kevin was disappointed all his fight training didn't have more of an effect on his appearance.

Kevin said: "It was horrible, horrible. And you know what the most horrific thing about it is, you train for so long and you're still fat! I just ate raw for eight months of my life and I'm still jiggling."

:: Here Comes The Boom is released in cinemas on Friday, November 9.
