Rebel Wilson with cast mates at Night At The Museum conference

Rebel Wilson has joked she "tasted a lot" of Ben Stiller when they filmed kissing scenes together in 'Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb'

Rebel Wilson "tasted a lot" of Ben Stiller when they filmed 'Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb' together.

The Australian actress had to kiss Ben's alter ego, Neanderthal Laa, in the upcoming comedy film and claims his lips tasted odd.

Speaking at a press conference to promote the film in London today (15.12.14), she told BANG Showbiz: "I tasted a lot of Ben Stiller. He tasted a lot like rubbing alcohol.

She jokingly added: "He was very precious about our kissing, it was quite romantic and passionate."

Stiller - who as well as playing Laa also reprises his role as museum night guard Larry Daley for a third time - defended the taste of his lips, saying: "I did have prosthetics lips on."

Wilson also claimed they were lots of smooching scenes that they couldn't use in the final cut because they were too graphic.

She quipped: "There was some racier stuff between me and Laa which had to be cut. If an R-rated version is released then (you'll see it). I loved Laa's muscles which you don't get to see when Ben plays Larry, because he's wearing a jacket all the time but when he plays Laa it's like, arms out, they're just there."

Stiller again interjected, saying: "We were trying to push the boundaries of the movie ... (Those muscles) were when I was in character training six hours a day..."

Other cast members at the event included Owen Wilson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Dan Stevens and the film's director Shawn Levy.

'Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb' is in cinemas from December 19.

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.
