Director Nanette Burstein liked Applegate's shock reaction so much when Long's towel dropped that she asked him to re-enact the take, before eventually cutting it from the film.
"There was one scene where I go up to surprise Drew ... Applegate comes around the corner, catches me in a towel," the Daily Telegraph quoted Long as saying.
He said,"During one take ... I gestured with my hand that was holding the towel to the upstairs bathroom, drop the towel, and so my boys were out there.We had to turn the camera around to Christina - to get her reaction. So generous giving actor that I am, I had to do exactly what I did again."
"And I grew up watching - who didn't have a crush on Christina, on Kelly Bundy? It was one of those surreal (moments). I found myself for a solid hour of my life showing her my c**k and b**ls," he added.
