If Idris Elba isn’t musing about the awkward Taylor Swift and Kanye West beef at the 2016 Met Gala, he’s probably got his eyes on a nice pair of feet – and thanks to his co-star, Kate Winslet, the whole world knows about his little toe-loving secret.
While making an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, The Mountain Between Us co-stars revealed they had to strip down to their skivvies for one of the movie’s more intimate scenes. Winslet was essentially nude, save for her socks per Elba’s request.
The Titanic actress explained how it all unfolded while filming with the 45-year-old and director Hany Abu-Assad.
‘I had to get quite bossy,’ she confessed. ‘I’ve done quite a lot of these scenes before and poor Hany (Abu-Assad) was really quite nervous and had an extensive shot list and I thought, “We are never going to get this done.”
‘Idris was a bit nervous too and everything was moving a bit slowly so I just said, “Okay boys, this is what we are going to do…” and we just got on with it.’
But what does this have to do with Idris’ unconventional foot fetish? Well…
‘We got naked but Idris asked me to keep my socks on. I thought he didn’t like feet, but it is the opposite. Idris loves feet!’ Kate revealed.
Elba confirmed his foot fetish, stating: ‘I’ve just got a bit of a thing.’
Check out Winslet and Elba’s full interview when their episode on The Graham Norton show airs Friday on BBC One.
