The actress features alongside Pierce in comedy caper The Love Punch, starring as a former husband and wife who grudgingly join forces to recover their stolen retirement fund.

Emma joked of her kissing scene with the former 007: "I just messed up in various ways as many times as I possibly could.

"He said, 'Have I been kissing you all day?' And I said, 'Yeaaahhh'."

The Oscar-winning actress hinted she'd like to take on a few action roles after getting a taste for the daredevil when she had to get behind the wheel for the movie to film a car chase down a steep set of steps in Paris.

"I was just having too good a time. Each time we did it, I drove up another of the steps so instead of being three steps up, we'd be four steps up," she said.

"The angle got more acute, and Pierce's terror became more apparent, which of course made me want to go further.

"It made me want to do more of that kind of thing. I really enjoyed the daredevilness of it, and being allowed to do something that's illegal."

:: The Love Punch is in cinemas now.
