TravelGuides – Alan Cumming recalls filming nude scene with Jessica Lange

Alan Cumming’s breast friend is Jessica Lange.

The actor’s newest memoir “Baggage: Tales From a Fully Packed Life,” is full of juicy tales from his life in showbiz. One story, in particular, involves Lange, a nude scene and her so-called “fantastic boobs.”

Cumming, 56, starred with the two-time Oscar winner, 72, in the 1999 drama “Titus.” He wrote about how the two were joking around about aging impacting their physical features and Lange was worried that her breasts would sag as she hit a certain age.

Following their light-hearted convo, the actors had to film a nude scene in which the “Good Wife” star was directed to put his hand on her breasts.

In his book, Alan recalled that he remembered telling Lange, “I don’t know what you’re talking about, Jess. You have fantastic boobs.”

“Oh, honey,” the “Tootsie” actress quipped at the time. “If your hand wasn’t there that thing would be halfway round my back.’”

In another anecdote, Cumming described how he accidentally crashed Jennifer Lopez’s wedding to Cris Judd in Milan. Lopez, 52, and the music video choreographer were married from 2001 until 2003.

Cumming explained that he was in Italy with his pal and former Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey to attend the Versace show at Milan fashion week. The pair attended the after-party at Donatella Versace’s Lake Como mansion. However, they soon realized that they were actually at the “I’m Real” singer’s nuptials.

“‘Oh my God,’ I whispered to Glenda. ‘We’re at J.Lo’s wedding reception!’” he wrote in his book. “And indeed, as the happy couple began to cut the cake, we were encouraged to raise our glasses in a toast, and Donatella shouted, ‘To Jenneefer and Crees!’”

He then revealed his elation and shock when the “Wedding Planner” actress actually came up to him and Bailey and said hello. Cumming added that he forgot who Lopez was and she had to remind him that they hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live” together.

Cumming quipped that he tried to lighten the mood by telling Lopez how much he loved her hit track at the time, “Ain’t It Funny.” He then proceeded to congratulate Judd for directing the music video, however, Cumming realized years later that he praised Judd for the wrong video. Judd instead directed Lopez’s 2000 hit, “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”

Realizing his little snafu “20 years later,” the “Spy Kids” actor wrote in his memoir, “having done some online research in order to remember which particular J. Lo song it was I liked all those years ago, that I have discovered the video I described in such glowing detail to the groom was not in fact the one he directed at all.”

“An easy mistake to make perhaps, but nonetheless, no doubt a doubly bitter pill for Cris to swallow considering I was congratulating him, at his wife’s behest, for something he had not only not done, but which was actually the work of the legendary photographer Herb Ritts,” he said.

“Baggage: Tales From a Fully Packed Life” is on bookshelves now.
