Learning to Drive: Patricia Clarkson recalls mini road trip with Ben Kingsley

Posted on

In her latest film Learning to Drive, Patricia Clarkson had to get behind the wheel with costar Sir Ben Kingsley. The only problem? The actress isn’t the most confident driver.

For EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told video series, Clarkson recalls having to drive across the Queensboro Bridge with Kingsley in the passenger seat for a scene. But when the two reached the other side, Clarkson just kept driving. For the full mini road trip narrative, check out the video above.

Learning to Drive hits theaters Aug. 21.
