Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar will try anything to get a scene right -- including, apparently, cunnilingus.

Female actresses have long championed Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar for his complex, challenging portrayals of women, in films like "All About My Mother" and "Volver." Little did we know the extent of his dedication. In Cannes to promote his latest, "Broken Embraces," the ever-unpredictable and openly gay Almodóvar lobbed the following conversation stopper into a press conference.

"In a film I made a long time ago ... I even performed cunnilingus on an actress to show the actor how to do it."

Creepy? Nutty? Hilarious? Yup, sounds like an Almodóvar film.
