NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Mary-Kate Olsen and Sir Ben Kingsley caught locking lips!
Is this Hollywood’s hottest (albeit oddest) new couple? Not exactly.
The 21-year-old Olsen and the 63-year-old Kingsley share a passionate kiss in the new indie film “The Wackness,” Access Hollywood has learned.
The film stars young Josh Peck as Luke, a teenage drug dealer who trades pot for sessions with his therapist Dr. Squires, played by Kingsley.
Mary-Kate plays Union, one of Peck’s customers.
After Dr. Squires has a falling out with his wife (Famke Janssen), he forms a friendship with Luke.
Luke and Dr. Squires deal some drugs, get drunk in a bar and that’s when the elder Oscar winner hooks up with Mary-Kate’s character.
Believe it or not, the film is described as a comedy.
According to the New York Post, the scene is a “full make-out session.”
Shooting began in New York on July 12 and is scheduled to wrap up August 24.
The film marks Mary-Kate’s first notable big screen role since 2004’s “New York Minute” alongside twin sis Ashley.
She also made a brief appearance in the Sienna Miller-Guy Pearce movie “Factory Girl” as an art gallery patron.
Mary-Kate will also joins the cast of the Showtime series “Weeds” this season in a co-starring role.
Peck is most known from the Nickelodeon teen sitcom “Drake & Josh.”
