Pop Culture: Laura Harring

Laura Harring and Naomi Watts’ sex scene in Mulholland Dr.
Talk about shattering your beauty queen image! Former Miss USA Laura Harring captivated audiences and critics alike with her breakthrough performance in David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. She even picked up an Alma Award for her performance as Rita in the psychological thriller. But it was Harring’s erotic make-out scene with co-star Naomi Watts that really titillated audiences! "The love scene just happened in my eyes,” Harring said “Rita's very grateful for the help Betty's given [her] so I'm saying goodbye and goodnight to her, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, I kiss her and then there's just an energy that takes us [over].” Boy did it ever!
