R+B hunk Usher is set to sizzle movie screens with a "hot" love scene in his upcoming film DYING FOR DOLLY.

The Yeah?! singer, currently dating leggy model EISHIA BRIGHTWELL, shares a passionate scene with Emmanuelle Chriqui in the movie, and the actress admits the result was "pretty smokin'".

She says, "The director came up to us and said, 'This has to be hot,' and we were like, 'Okay, no pressure.' But it ended up feeling like a choreographed dance. I was outside of myself going, 'Whoa, that was kind of sexy.'"

Chriqui adds that they had to do several takes of the scene - and it didn't bother her in the least.

She admits, "I could have thought of a million worse places to be, and he was such a good sport and so caring. He had my back, and I had his, and we legitimately became friends. It was a really cool experience.

"You never know how it's going to turn out. You just hope you can get along and have there be some magic on screen - and I think we accomplished that."

In the movie, which will be released in November (05), Usher plays a DJ hired by a mob boss to protect his daughter, played by Chriqui.
