Hooper had no idea King's Speech room was used for gay porn film

Images from both Snookered and The King's Speech were posted on website QueerClick.com last week (ends25Feb11) - and it appears the backgrounds in the films are identical.

It seems that in the same room where King George VI (Colin Firth) and his voice teacher Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) practised speech therapy in the Oscar-winning movie, two men once performed hardcore gay sex acts around a snooker table.

Both films were shot at a Portland Place address in London.

And now director Hooper has spoken out about the location link, insisting he had no idea his set was once used for a porn film.

He tells Eonline.com, "Everyone seems to be ahead of me on this. I mean, is it... is it literally... that room?"

But, even if the room was the same, Hooper insists the knowledge would not have made him change venue: "It was the right set for me and it was the right set for them."
