Just call her Kitty Cat.
In the latest episode of PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing, Jane Seymour reminisces about her time playing the seductive matriarch Kathleen Cleary in Wedding Crashers alongside Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn.
“I happen to love this movie. I think it has to be one of the funniest movies ever,” she says of the film. Seymour explains that fans stop her all the time to ask her to do her “Kitty Cat” or “motorboat,” referring to the unforgettable moment in the film when she seduces Wilson’s character, hisses at him, and makes him touch her breasts.
And while the scene was in the script, her hiss was not. “I did that in the audition, it wasn’t scripted,” she says. “That was my addition to the role. I think that’s what got me the role.”
When it came time to shoot the scene, though, it was Wilson who was a bit nervous. “For Owen it was a little bit embarrassing,” Seymour says. “He did have to put his hands on my breasts, and he looked at me like, ‘Oof, how do you feel about this?’ And I said, ‘Well, Jane Seymour might have a problem [with it], but Kitty Cat doesn’t.” Meow.
