London: Singer Robbie Williams has revealed that he left singer Kylie Minogue feel offended by laughing drunkenly at her when she stripped during a song.
The pair had teamed up to film the video for their hit single "Kids" during which she had stripped. Williams said he has had a crush on Minogue since her days on TV show "Neighbours" in the late 1980s.
In his book titled "You Know Me", the "Take That" star revealed how the shock of seeing the woman he had admired for years undressing made him burst into laughter and left her "offended".
"I couldn`t figure out why my banter wouldn`t work, why my natural ability to just be myself went awry," telegraph.co.uk quoted him as saying.
He had not been told that the scene would feature Minogue taking off a robe to reveal she was wearing nothing but a tiny G-string.
"I just burst out laughing. Which I don`t think went down well with Kylie," Williams added.
"I may have offended her too, because she must have felt vulnerable too, being naked on set, and being naked in front of me."
He added: "I think that any chance of anything disappeared when I laughed at her. Perhaps she likes being naked, but she probably doesn`t enjoy being laughed at by some Stokie idiot."
Williams said he has been too embarrassed to ever bring the incident up since. But he said he hoped that mentioning it in the book would go "some way" to serving as an apology.
