Well, that's one way to get the mood just right.

In a new interview with Playboy, the "House of Cards" actress revealed a prank she pulled on Kevin Spacey during one of their many sex scenes on the much-talked-about Netflix drama. (Kate plays Zoe Barnes on the series against Kevin Spacey who plays the political genius — and tyrant — Francis Underwood.)

"I tried to get him to laugh by wearing pasties with his face on them," Kate confessed. "Of course, because Kevin wants to win whatever the game is and because he always wins, he did not laugh."

She did reveal, however, that Kevin Spacey did eventually break into laughter.

"He waited until the director said 'cut' and then he laughed," she continued in the interview. "Kevin has an amazing sense of humor, but he’s also a great professional and he’s really f--king good at it."

We're not surprised Kevin Spacey was able to hold his laughter. After all, he has taken home two Oscars for his performances in "The Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty." Still, we bet he enjoyed a prank like that.
