Nervous Viola Davis' missed out on kissing crush Harrison Ford

Last-minute nerves got the better of actress VIOLA DAVIS when she decided to steal a kiss from longtime crush and ENDER'S GAME co-star HARRISON FORD.

The Oscar-nominated actress was so excited to learn she'd be sharing the screen with the Star Wars icon she called her The Help co-star Octavia Spencer and told her she was planning to pucker up and plant a big smacker on Ford - even though there wasn't a kissing scene in the film.

She tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I said, 'Girl, I'm working with Harrison Ford. So I'm going to make a bold choice. In the middle of the scene, I'm just gonna plant a big one on him.'

"She said, 'Girl, that would be hot!'"

However, Davis' scheme didn't exactly go as planned - stage fright got the better of her.

She adds, "By the time we got to the scene... I froze. Yeah, there's no love scene in Ender's Game, but trust me, it would've fit in there. It would've been hot!"
