Australian actress Emily Browning was so "squeamish" filming medical scenes for erotic thriller Sleeping Beauty; she feared she would pass out on set.

Browning plays Lucy, a young college student who joins a high-class prostitution service, in the controversial drama, but Browning insists stripping off was nowhere near as terrifying as acting out medical tests and trials.

She says, "I remember reading the first scene where Lucy is having a tube put down her throat and I had a very visceral response to that, it made me panic a bit. I'm really squeamish and I did say: 'If this tube has to...

Tom Selleck is haunted by a "Magnum, P.I." poster he still wishes he hadn't agreed to be photographed for because it's the one fans seem to want signed more than any other.

The ageing hunk admits he was reluctant to pose for the Hawaiian hammock-themed shoot but signed on to be "a nice guy."

And he's regretted his decision ever since.

He explains, "They put me in a hammock between two palm trees and I had on a purple Hawaiian shirt... and they gave me one of those pineapples that are cut off with a big straw and an umbrella.

"I said, 'I don't wanna do this', and they said, 'Oh, come on,...

He adds, "I should be frustrated but I can't seem to stop thinking about beautiful things... I never thought I'd be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, pic...
