He played a soldier who once killed a German with a perfect grenade lob to the head, but don’t ask him to — gasp! — kiss gorgeous actresses for the cameras.
“Band of Brothers’’ and “Desperate Housewives’’ actor Neal McDonough says his religious beliefs — and undying devotion to his ex-model wife, Ruve Robertson — keep him from getting up close and personal with co-stars on screen, even if it costs him jobs and the hefty paychecks that go with them.
“I won’t kiss any other woman because these lips are meant for one woman,” the Catholic actor recently told Closer Weekly.
McDonough admitted that his no-lip-service stance has lost him work in the past — including an estimated $1 million gig on the set of ABC TV’s “Scoundrels’’ in 2010.
At the time, the father of five refused to participate in sexy scenes with actress Virginia Madsen.
“I was [surprised], and it was a horrible situation for me,” the actor said about getting the boot after just three days of shooting. “After that, I couldn’t get a job because everybody thought I was this religious zealot. I am very religious. I put God and family first, and me second. That’s what I live by. It was hard for a few years.
“But I was not going to lose the fight. And it worked. My career has been phenomenal.”
The actor played the husband of Nicollette Sheridan’s character on “Desperate Housewives.’’
“When [creator] Marc Cherry signed me, I said, ‘I’m sure you know, but I won’t kiss anybody,’ ” McDonough said. “He was like, ‘But this is ‘Desperate Housewives!’ I said, ‘I know.’ He paused for about 5 seconds and said, ‘All right, I’m just going to have to write better.’ And we had a great time.”
The 6-foot actor has been married to Robertson, a 6-foot-3 former bikini model from South Africa, since 2003.
The pair met on the street in London in 2001 and it was love at first sight, he shared.
“It was St. Patrick’s Day and we literally bumped into each other on the street, locked eyes, and that was it,” the actor said. “The next morning, I called the woman I was dating at the time and said, ‘I’m sorry, it’s not going to work out with us anymore — I just met the woman I’m going to marry.’ ”
McDonough is starring in the History Channel’s “Project Blue Book” about the US military and UFO sightings
