Mamie Gummer

How'd the sex scene go? “It's supposed to be this passionate moment, but there were a lot of costumes. We were constantly pulling off layers. It took long enough to kill off any sense of eroticism.” —Hayley Atwell

Sophie Dymoke

How was your kiss with Ben Whishaw? “Just like it is with a girl, but more stubble.” —Matthew Goode

Yigal Azrouël

Jessica Joffe

How does a British man hit on a woman? “A British bloke pretends like it's the first time he's ever done that. Self-deprecating nonsense. But maybe I'm just talking about me.” —Paul Blackthorne

Rachel Dratch

Ever have any run-ins with nuns? “I once saw a nun walking away from me and her habit was pulled up above her ankles. I spotted a leotard and ballet shoes. I asked another nun about it, and she said, ‘Oh, we just love to dance!’ ” —Rufus Albemarle

Olivia Palermo

Daniel Benedict

What was your most recent sin? “Sloth. I was on vacation.” —Richard Johnson

Ali Wise

Nigel Barker

Did you go to Catholic school? “It took me three years to get kicked out!” —Amy Sacco

Rain Phoenix

What's the difference between the ways British men and American men woo? “British men woo with their sense of humor and quirky sensibility, and American men woo with their insecurities.” —George Wayne
