One of Hollywood’s great legends is Rita Moreno, the legendary actress and singer who can boast of being one of the few EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winners) and who appears in the new comedy ’80 For Brady’, alongside Lily Tomlin, Sally Field and Jane Fonda.
Moreno, who became a legend thanks to her portrayal of Anita in the original film version of West Side Story, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show to promote the film and admitted something in public that made everyone laugh.
Being in the dressing room upset her hormones
“I just want to say that my favorite scene in the movie takes place in the locker room where the guys are…you know. Rob Gronkowski, all these guys,” the actress said.
“I walked into the room, which was a real locker room, and I swear to God, in a matter of seconds I was turned on,” she continued.
Kimmel inquired, “Are you saying that a room full of men turned you on for some reason?”
“Not only did I get turned on, I kept grabbing myself! I kept saying to myself, ‘What’s wrong with you,’” she laughed. And she said she reminded herself that she was in her 90s, but eventually convinced herself that “there was nothing wrong with me.”
Her partner Sally Field disagreed
With Kimmel came her other female co-stars in the film as well, and one of them, 76-year-old Sally Field, said she didn’t see a reason to talk about sex so publicly.
“I like sex as much as anybody, I just don’t like to talk graphically about it in public,” she said.
Rita joked that if Gronkowski made her horny, Tom Brady, 45, was “a little old” for her.
Brady co-produced the film, which also features cameos by former Patriots teammates Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.
