Melbourne, Apr 24 : She has romped with some of the most famous actors in Hollywood onscreen, but Christina Ricci would have least expected to be groped by a chimpanzee on the set of her latest film Speed Racer.
The actress revealed that the shocking incident happened when a chimpanzee jumped over her on the set of the film.
"The chimp jumped over and grabbed my left breast and hung off me," The Daily Telegraph quoted Ricci, as saying
She added: "It happened in the middle of the first take on the first day of shooting - it was painful."
However in an attempt to "not upset the chimp any further" she did not budge and meekly cried "help, help, ouch."
Finally she caught the attention of the crew, who were facing the other direction and helped her, but tease her till date.
"They thought it was hilarious and constantly reminded me the whole time we filmed," she said.
