As If The Leftovers Weren’t Weird Enough, the Hot TV Mom Wants to Bone Her Hot TV Son

Amy Brenneman has a little bit of a crush on her Leftovers co-star Chris Zylka, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that he plays her large son Tommy on the HBO drama. As she told Conan O’Brien, this caused a bit of an issue during the first season’s flashback episode, when she started rubbing his arm in a way that was slightly less maternal than planned: “I was like, ‘I’m so happy you’re home, I’m so happy you’re home, I’m sooooo happy you’re home.’” The problem, Brenneman says, is his skin, which is so soft, she compares it to a ripe peach and the skin of Taye Diggs, the two softest substances known to man. Does it make this anecdote less weird to know that Chris Zylka is 30 in real life? Sort of! But also much less fun.
