Beyonce was once keenly interested in acting and featured in Steve Shill’s movie Obsessed, released in 2009. In the film, she and the lead Idris Elba did a makeout scene within 20 minutes of their introduction.

Actor Elba and superstar singer Beyoncé played a married couple in the 2009’s hit film Obsessed. Ali Larter also played a prominent role in the movie, as she portrayed the character who becomes increasingly smitten by Elba’s character.

Elba was interested in the role for several reasons, and one among them was persuasion for variety. Obsessed allowed the audience to see Elba portray a role quite different from his role in The Wire movie.

Elba has shared in a conversation with Contact Music, that was looking forward to working with Beyoncé. Although their meeting was good, it became a little awkward, when they had to do a makeout scene immediately. Elba shared,

“It was weird when I met her – within 20 minutes we had to kiss. I wasn’t complaining. It was full on, we had to do these pictures for the wall and it was full-on kissing. I was like, ‘Oh god, I’m kissing Beyoncé, I can’t believe it.’”

Idris Elba and Beyoncé’s movie Obsessed was a box-office success with a worldwide collection of $73.8 million.

The iconic artist, Beyoncé was slowly building her acting career when she got the role in Obsessed in 2009. The movie allowed the actress to prove her mettle in acting. It was a massive chance for the singer as the film had numerous dramatic elements, which helped her to channel her emotions through the specific genre.

Beyoncé once said in an interview with Larry King,

“I actually like it a lot more. You know, I still like it — it’s easier for me. And I guess it’s because I hold so many things in because I always have to be so professional. And I work very, very hard. So all of those things that — all of the things that I hold in, I’m able to — to let out when I do movies. And it’s really just exhilarating for me to release all of that, you know when I do dramatic roles.”



Cadillac Records star also credited Elba for helping her with acting in the film,

“He’s amazing. And, you know, he brought out a lot of wonderful things in my performance. It was the first time I did improv. And, you know, he is a student and a great teacher. And we’ve spent a lot of time just with the two of us going back and forth with the script and making adjustments and making it our own,” she added. “I learned so much working from him.”

Likewise, Idris Elba also said kind words for Beyoncé as he called her a true professional. 

Pacific Rim star said she was a very smart, talented, and giving actress. He said working with her was a good experience, and they had a phenomenal time during the shoot.
