LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Josh Duhamel may diss his pregnant wife in his latest film, but in real life, he loves his lady's lumps.
At the Los Angeles premiere for "Scenic Route," the 40-year-old actor said that although the dark and twisted character he portrays in the movie feels that his wife is unattractive, he thinks Fergie has "never been more beautiful."
"It's the one thing that I sort of opposed in the script and I tried to get it cut out," Duhamel said.
"Scenic Route" is centered on two old friends who are stranded in the desert and must survive the extreme heat. The film opens in limited release Friday.
Fergie, who is due soon, appeared on Duhamel's arm Tuesday night. Is the couple ready for their first child?
Duhamel said they "don't have a bag in the car," but adds that the hospital is close "if anything happens."
