AC­TOR Jamie Bell has re­vealed his kiss­ing made a big im­pres­sion the first time he met his fu­ture wife.

The Billy Elliot star smooched ac­tress Kate Mara, 31, in an au­di­tion 12 years ago and she went home and told her mum what a good kisser he was.

The cou­ple got to­gether nine years later and tied the knot in July.

Jamie, 31, told The Jonathan Ross Show: “I met her on a screen test for a film 12 years ago. Nei­ther of us got the part.

“She did have to kiss a lot of other guys – pop stars, le­git­i­mate movie stars.

“Ap­par­ently she went home and her mum said, ‘How was your day?’, and she was like, ‘I kissed a lot of guys to­day but Jamie Bell was a good kisser.’

“And then 12 years later, we got mar­ried.”
