“Once something is on Twitter it is very difficult to control.”
The unnamed stars are apparently both known to millions. They are said to have had an “instant connection”, the publication reports.
After filming one Saturday evening, the couple apparently got together for a night of passion. And when they arrived at rehearsals the next day “red-faced”, they did their best to keep it a secret.
