While giving an interview at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, Pedro Almodóvar was asked how he manages to coax such amazing performances out of his actors. "I play all the roles on set," Almodóvar said. "In a film I made a long time ago, I even performed cunnilingus on an actress to show the actor how to do it," the legendary Spanish director told shocked reporters at a press conference for his new film, Broken Embraces, which is premiering at the festival.

But we're more than happy to taunt ourselves (and by extension, you—sorry!) with preview trailers, clips and behind-the-scenes scoops until we can finally see it.
