Pacino Made Woman 'Squirm' With Oscar Award
Al Pacino was left red-faced after picking up his biggest acting accolade when the Oscar statuette indecently rubbed a colleague. The screen legend relates the story on an upcoming episode of US cable show INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO, recalling how his Academy award for Scent Of A Woman nearly got him into trouble. He explains, "I get in the elevator and I'm going down with a lot of people... And I had my Oscar. "A very well known actress is in front of me and she starts to squirm. And I realise the head of my Oscar is touching her behind. I leaned over and said, 'Oh pardon me, that wasn't me, it was my Oscar.'"
