  • Lucky girl, but make sure his crotch covering is on tight for the love making scenes. His… downstairs region should come with a “Hazzard” warning.

  • I don’t know her as an actress, the only thing I’ve seen her in was Step Up and I hated that (wasn’t her fault though, just thought it was a bad movie). I also haven’t seen Adam Levine acting so there’s no way to have an opinion about that… but the “Lovers” are probably very sexual roles and they’re both pretty hot so it should work.
