It started with a kiss for Billy Elliot star
NEWLY MARRIED Jamie Bell has recalled how his new wife rated him a good kisser 12 years ago when they first met at an audition.
Bell, who rose to fame in 2000 as beloved young ballet dancer Billy Elliot, married actress Kate Mara earlier this year.
The pair, who were believed to have gotten engaged in January and have been dating since 2014, shared a surprise picture from their wedding on Instagram in July.
Bell told ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show: “I met her on a screen test for a film 12 years ago and neither of us got the part, but she did have to kiss a lot of other guys on that screen test.
“And there were a lot of other people there, pop stars, legitimate movie stars... And 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.’
