Anne Hathaway gave Steve Carrell pink eye when they kissed in new movie ‘Get
The 25-year-old beauty – who stars as Agent 99 in the spy comedy – said she
was suffering from itchy eyes when she filmed a particularly raunchy scene
with her co-star Steve.
She said: “There was a health scare last year and a certain contact
solution, I won’t say the name of it but it was the one that I use - gave
you conjunctivitis. I also had a sinus infection at the same time. So I had
to go up to Steve, my eye is red, puffy and dripping green - I’m snotty and
I’m just like 'Come here!' "
However, Anne revealed she was unaware she had pink eye – more commonly
known as conjunctivitis – and was forced to ring the film’s producer Alex
Gartner to warn him.
She added to ‘Fox News’: “I told Alex, ‘You might want to call Steve and let
him know I had pink eye and my tears kind of got in my mouth, so he might
want to worry about that!’
“But I'd do the kiss again in a heartbeat!”
