Ginnifer Goodwin Mounted Bill Paxton in Her Audition to Get 'Big Love' (VIDEO)

Ginnifer Goodwin, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'If you noticed great sexual chemistry between Ginnifer Goodwin and Bill Paxton on 'Big Love,' it's because they got started working on that right away. In fact, Goodwin started working on it before Paxton even knew what was going on, according to her recollection on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

It's not entirely her fault, though. She was given a love scene for her screen test and then brought into a conference room with Paxton and "25 dudes in suits," according to Goodwin. What would you do in that situation?

"I was very confused about how I was supposed to go about performing this love scene in this chair," she said of the moment.

"So I got out of mine and I climbed into Bill Paxton's chair with him. I realized when I kissed him that it was unexpected and therefore none of the other girls must have molested him in the way I was intending to molest him."

After that, she figured she must have blown it. But when she called her agent to apologize for screwing up the interview, she got a chorus of voices from the 25 "dudes in suits" on speaker phone.

"Welcome to 'Big Love,'" they told her, and we're sure most of them were laughing at the guts it took for her to attack that audition so aggressively. Maybe Paxton gave her a big vote of support in particular.
