Olivia stars along­side Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in the new film.

The flick fo­cuses on the be­hind- the- scenes pol­i­tics be­tween two cousins jock­ey­ing to be court favourites dur­ing the reign of Queen Anne in the early 18th cen­tury.

Olivia stars as the monarch while Emma por­trays Abi­gail Hill, a favourite of the Queen.

Rachel, 48, plays Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marl­bor­ough.

Anne, who is said to be Bri­tain’s only bi­sex­ual monarch, is depicted hav­ing steamy lesbo sex with Emma’s char­ac­ter.

Speak­ing of film­ing, Olivia said: “There were some scenes I was ner­vous about.”

How­ever, she came up with an in­ter­est­ing way of light­en­ing the mood dur­ing the ro­man­tic bits.

She said: “I put a damp sponge be­tween my legs, be­cause I thought it would be funny for Emma to find. You can see in her face the sud­den look of hor­ror.’ The Favourite has had al­most uni­ver­sal praise from crit­ics and has been nom­i­nated for four Golden Globes in­clud­ing Best Lead Ac­tress for Olivia, 44, and Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress for Emma, 30, and Rachel.
