It started with a kiss for Billy Elliot star

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

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.’
