Josh Groban’s first taste of the movie industry tasted like cherries?
While filming Crazy, Stupid, Love, his big-screen debut, the crooner ditched his nice-guy persona to play Emma Stone’s bad-boy boyfriend – a comedic role that came with a little romance.
“After one of our scenes, the directors said, ‘This is feeling a little goofy. Let’s try this with a kiss at the end,’ ” the freshly minted actor, 30, tells GQ magazine. “And I thought, ‘Holy s—! I’ve never kissed on-camera before. What do I have to do? I didn’t take that class in college.’ ”
