Sparks fly (from Chicago) between Matlin & Beals
Marlee Matlin and Jennifer Beals are getting closer on screen, then they have been off screen.
Their characters may have just met each other on The L Word, but their friendship spans nearly two decades after meeting on a trip from Chicago to Los Angeles.
Although they never mention being part of the mile high club, the show forces them to take their real-life friendship to a whole other level as only a love scene can.
In a recent TV Tattler interview about whether its easier to do it with your real life best friend on TV, Beals replies, "Oh, it's horrible. We laugh hysterically the whole time. It's horrible, it's horrible. I try to be professional, and she looks at me and gives me one little look of mischief and we just lose it, and it takes forever to shoot."
...But it hasn't been a complete love fest on the set of The L Word. In the same interview, Beals and Matlin discuss the departure of their castmate Kristanna Loken who made claims that she was surrounded by catty insecure women.
Both women are both confused by this claim and agree that their experiences have been mostly positive on the show. Says Beals, "I've only worked on a couple scenes with her, and when I was working with her, it seemed like she was having a real good time, and i'm sorry she didn't have a good experience." Matlin agrees saying, "I'm sorry she expressed her feelings to an interviewer, when it was an experience she had on a one-to-one basis with someone. It's a great show, and for me it was a wonderful experience."
