PIMPLY PINUP ANNA SERVES A SHOCK TO ‘LOVER' IGLESIAS
She has all the shots. He has all the hits.
But when tennis pinup Anna Kournikova (came face-to-face with Latin Lothario Enrique Iglesias on the set of his latest video - it was hardly a perfect match.
The 26-year-old son of legendary Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias reportedly balked at kissing the 20-year-old Russian temptress because she had some pimples near the corner of her mouth. Kournikova burst into tears when Iglesias explained his reluctance to get cozy.
Those on the set at Hollywood's Universal City Walk shopping mall say it took nearly three hours to film the long, lingering kiss that was supposed to be the climax of a promotional video for Enrique's new single "Escape."
"Makeup artists were called back again and again," an insider said. "She was embarrassed and he was hardly keen. By the end the kiss was hardly the hot embrace they were hoping for."
The filming of the video had got off to a bad start when Kournikova had turned up late to a interior shooting at Long Beach, Calif., the previous evening.
Enrique was furious, according to those on the set.
"His attitude was that she was ruining his video and she was lucky to be in it at all," a source said.
But Kournikova is likely to take it all in her stride. Her youthful complexion has made her the most popular female sports star on the Internet. She also is the highest off-court earner in tennis, raking in more than $10 million last year in endorsements.
