Susan said, “It was really fun, especially in the desert. What I learned is that you do your best acting when you’re really just trying to drive a car and you’re not thinking about anything and getting the shots lined up. I was driving pretty fast by the time we finished the movie.”
Last year, the women got together and revealed that the iconic kiss at the end of the film was actually impromptu! Susan shared, “It happened at the very end of the day. You know, the helicopter coming in, the police cars arriving, Harvey running, everything else, so it was basically like a stunt. We had one take. I just said to (director) Ridley (Scott) and to Geena, ‘You know, I’d really like to kiss you.’ And so, that’s what we did. One take, one juicy, romantic take.”
