Max Greenfield can now say he's kissed Sally Field.

Yes, Oscar-winning acting legend Sally Field.

"You just go in and do it," Greenfield told me at the South by Southwest premiere of Hello, My Name Is Doris, his and Field's new movie. "You just go right in."

In the film, Field plays a delusional woman in her sixties who has a thing for a younger co-worker (Greenfield).

"We had already been kinda like flirting around and then we just, we just went for it," Greenfield said. "And then we were like, 'Let's do one more take.'"

Field gushed that the New Girl actor is "so adorable."

She also said playing the older woman "was fun because it's him. I did feel like I wanted to apologize all the time but that's really what the story [of the movie] is."

Both Greenfield and director Michael Showalter are still a bit surprised Field signed on to star in the film, which also features Beth Behrs, Natasha Lyonne and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

"We sent Sally the script and begged her to be in the movie, I'm still speechless," Showalter said. "I'm still pinching myself that she agreed to do it."
