Oh, Peter...

During the production of Julia Misbehaves (1948), Elizabeth Taylor developed a crush on her co-star, Peter Lawford; moreover, her infatuation was something of an open secret. In one scene, she was instructed to passionately kiss Lawford and declare: "Oh, Ritchie, what are we going to do?" In the heat of the moment, however, Taylor delivered the line as scripted, but then added: "Oh, Peter, what am I going to do?" The assembled company burst into laughter and Taylor, returning from her reverie, turned a deep crimson.

[Taylor once declined an invitation to dine with George Clooney. "I couldn't possibly have dinner with you," she explained. "You're too sexy and way too young."]
