JAMIE LEE CURTIS and PIERCE BROSNAN's skinny dip in their new movie THE TAILOR OF PANAMA was made extra stressful by the fact they were swimming in alligator infested waters.
HALLOWEEN star Curtis, who has an affair with Brosnan's character in the movie version of JOHN LE CARRE's spy novel, says the pair were surrounded by safety divers throughout the scene to ward off the alligators swimming round their ankles. Curtis says, "There were some alligators there, but there were a couple of safety divers too." But by the end of the scene, the sexy actress says she's found a way to combat her fears. She laughs, "I figured if I was going to get eaten by an alligator and have it filmed then that wouldn't be a bad exit for me!" (LE/WNV/CPT)
