Tea Leoni got a little kinky with Adam Sandler in their new movie, Spanglish. The actress, who plays a neurotic mother and wife, says she insisted to the film's director, James L. Brooks, on just one thing during the couple's coupling scene. "I told Jim, 'The only thing is – and I really feel adamant about this – I want to leave her sneakers on.' " Leoni, who has two children with husband David Duchovny, says she'd never leave her running shoes on while being intimate in real life, but her character, Deborah, isn't the touchy-feely type. "Jim, I think, thought I was nuts, but there's something about me leaving my shoes on. You know where (the love scene) is not going to end up, which is cuddling in bed or falling asleep or relaxing."
