London, Nov 26 (ANI): Actresses Portia de Rossi and Joely Richardsons lesbian romp in the forthcoming series of Nip/Tuck, is sure to steam up TV screens.

It is the first time that Rossi has played a lesbian on screen.

“I am a lesbian playing a lesbian. But shes a different woman than I am, so the most surprising thing is how emotional its been for me,” The Daily Mail quoted Richardson, as saying.

Rossi said the role was a risk, three years after she went public about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres.

“My relationship with Ellen is so public, and I thought, ‘Am I going to play a romantic lead again?’ I had that one moment of, ‘Does this mean I’ll be typecast as a lesbian?’” Portia said.

“And Ellen turned to me and said, ‘So what?’ And I thought, ‘Oh, yeah, right, so what?’” she added.

However, there were no such issues for co-star Joely.

“I have no problems kissing women. It’s not the first time I have done lesbian scenes, Joely said.

Joely admitted that she had fun doing on-screen sex scenes and real-life lesbian Portia was worried.

“I have heard Ellen was jealous. She has been on set. She is great and Portia is lovely,” Joely said.

“I think playing a lesbian turns men on. When my character Julia was the boring, married housewife, always chopping vegetables, people were sweet and lovely.

“But now I’m playing her as a sexy ***** with a big padded bra and a short skirt, I get a very different reaction.
“I think men respond to the sexiness of two women being together,” she added. (ANI)
