Sean Penn's "Milk" costar James Franco has further dished about the pair's lengthy on-screen kiss. Franco told Out magazine, "After our [on-screen] kiss, Sean texted Madonna - his ex-wife, Madonna - and said, 'I just popped my cherry kissing a guy. I thought of you. I don't know why' . . . There's a scene in the pool and everybody else is dressed and there's just something uncomfortable about that."
Previously Franco told GQ Magazine:
"The first kiss of the movie was out on Haight Street, with, like, 200 people watching, outside. I'm sure in the end it will be a really cool shot, but it starts close and then it takes maybe a minute. That's a long time on film with everybody watching, and, like, a fake moustache getting in your mouth. It was long enough that you couldn't help but thinking, 'Oh, my God, I'm kissing Spicoli.'"
