Filming On-Screen Sex scenes is not so easy for celebrities. This could be so awkward sometimes if they have to retake it again and again. It could be good for some celebrities or bad for some. Maybe some enjoy those sex scenes or some feel noisy to act. \n\n\n\nWhen it is asked to celebrities how do they feel while filming on-screen sex scenes for movies? here's what we get in answer - \n\n\n\n\n"You can literally be tangled in sheets and you turn to the other actor and say, 'What the fuck are we doing?' Dear Mum, at work today I had so-and-so's left nut sack pressed against my cheek. It's sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms." - Kate Winslet \n\n\n\n\nMichael Fassbender on Jane Eyre \n\n\n\n\n "Sex scenes can be quite awkward. As a guy, the first thing you want to do is make sure you're not taking advantage. You don't want the girl to feel like you're getting a free feel or something. I try to make a fool of myself in one way or another to lighten the mood and then just go for it, because you don't want to be doing take after take."\n\n\n\n\nRyan Reynolds on The Change-Up \n\n\n\n\n "So in the scene she's sitting there, and I take her top off, I take her bra off, and she has those pasties on, but she's drawn these adorable little smiley faces on them. And I forget every line in the scene. Not just from this movie, from every movie I've done." \n\n\n\n\nGreta Gerwig, on Greenberg\n\n\n\n\n\n\n I knew that there would be awkward sex scenes, but they were so wonderfully awkward. They were so specifically awkward \u2026 Everything was highly choreographed and planned out, so it wasn't shocking. Ben [Stiller] is a great actor and such a gentleman and made sure that everything was OK with me. \n\n\n\n\nShailene Woodley, on The Spectacular Now\n\n\n\n\n\n\n It was both of our first times having an onscreen [sex] scene. It was such a safe, comfortable environment and I am so grateful that it was with Miles because he was such a gentleman and made me feel very comfortable and nurtured. And I think I made him feel very comfortable and nurtured. It was really sweet. We wanted it to just feel natural. \n\n\n\n\nLena Dunham, on Girls\n\n\n\n\n\n\n I will be lying there, kind of being slammed by a naked body, thinking, 'I want out of this bed. I want out of this scene. I want out of this life. Who did this to me?' And I realized, I'm my own boss. I've written it. I'm directing it. I'm the person holding myself in sexual slavery. \n\n\n\n\nMichelle Williams, on sex scenes with Ryan Gosling in Blue Valentine\n\n\n\n\n\n\nWe shot the beginning of our relationship first, and it was fun and alive. Then we did the sex scenes and it was \u2026 toxic. Ryan and I had stopped relating to each other as Ryan and Michelle. Those scenes took forever. I had a long drive from set to home each night, and I would roll down all the windows and turn up the music as loud as I could and hang my head out the window like a dog and scream. It was my escape.\n\n\n\n\nRyan Gosling, on Blue Valentine\n\n\n\n\n\n\nYou mean the trying-not-to-have-sex sex scene? It was hard \u2026 a lot of times actors can trick people into thinking something is happening when it's not happening, and we had to call ourselves out on anything that didn't feel honest. Actors become very professional and proficient about watching out for each other's light and not stepping on each other's lines. All of these things are artificial, and you have to strip that away if you're going to achieve a sense of intimacy. In real life sex is messy, and we wanted to get at that wonderful messiness.\n\n\n\n\n\nIt's actually kind of annoying, you're there for 12 hours, it's exhausting. - - Justin Timberlake \n\n\n\n\nAngelina Jolie on directing a sex scene for In the Land of Blood and Honey \n\n\n\n\nYou kind of suddenly feel this strange thing of asking people to participate in anything like that because they're not a real couple. You find out how strange this is to ask anybody to get naked together and put a camera on them. [The actors] actually made me more comfortable. I was being a lot more prudish. I would have allowed them to be more prudish and they told me it was all right and important for the story. They wanted to do what they wanted to do and they were comfortable.\n\n\n\n\nJon Hamm on Bridesmaids \n\n\n\n\nIt's like running in the rain. There's a certain point when you go, '[Expletive] it, I'm already wet. I'm not going to get any less wet, so I might as well just enjoy how this feels.' I mean, sure, there's awkwardness about being in a weird flesh-colored thong, bouncing on top of an actress. I am not a small human being. I weigh at least 200 pounds and I'm six-foot-two. And Wiig is a twig; she's a skinny little thing. It's weird and uncomfortable at first, but then all the awkwardness melts away and you think, All right, we're doing this, so let's have fun with it. You know what I mean? You're in that moment and it's happening and it's not going to get any better, so you might as well enjoy it.\n\n\n\n\n\nWhen it comes to sex scenes, I'm not comfortable doing them I don't think anyone ever is comfortable doing those kinds of scenes. \u2014 Chlo\u00eb Sevigny \n\n\n\n\nAtom Egoyan, Director of Where the Truth Lies \n\n\n\n\nI'm convinced that the best way to shoot a sex scene and make it seem real is to use a master shot \u2014 an uninterrupted sequence with no cuts. I wanted to see the bodies. The overwhelming challenge was how to show two (and in this case even more) people having sex without depicting the act of thrusting. By its very nature, sex needs thrusting. More specifically, one part of the body must be in some form of friction with another. This isn't a very romantic way of thinking about it, but then again the MPAA isn't a very romantic organization. Their job is to count thrusts, and then decide \u2014 depending on the number \u2014 who should see the film. Nice work if you can get it. \n\n\n\n\nRosamund Pike on shooting a sex scene with Neil Patrick Harris in Gone Girl \n\n\n\n\n You're alone with a man who's not your husband who also has a husband \u2026 he's in his underwear, you're in your underwear, and you're sort of dry humping on a bed. \n\n\n\n\nJeff Perry, on Scandal\n\n\n\n\n\n\n I get cast gay a fair amount throughout my life. It's not the first time. Matt was kind of like, 'Jeff, um, I'm gonna pretend this is real easy and not a problem, but I've never done this at all.' And so you know, we were awkward for a while. And then he said, 'Let's go for it. Come on. I'm gonna pretend you're my girlfriend, my wife. Here we go.' And we had a lot of fun. \n\n\n\n\nNeil Patrick Harris, on shooting a sex scene with Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl\n\n\n\n\n\n\nWe had to rehearse the sex scene with David [Fincher], like every inch of it, 'Then you put your mouth on his dick here, and then this number of thrusts, and then you ejaculate.' He doesn't want a lot of reinterpretation once you start rolling.\n\n\n\n\nAnna Paquin, on True Blood\n\n\n\n\n\n\nMaybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people? But it's really not. When it's a love scene with someone you actually love, there's no feeling like, 'Can I touch him here? Can I touch him there?' You know what your boundaries are \u2014 or what they aren't, I suppose.\n\n\n\n\n\nHe is completely naked except for not even the thickness of a sock. I can completely feel his boner. He's not even a real actor, he's an extra. And he's smashing me and fucking the shit out of me in the scene. I did [put on panties] but you couldn't see. It felt very violating. It made me realize I'm a very strong woman and this happened to me. It's not rape but it was kind of a wake-up call. \u2014 Sarah Silverman \n\n\n\n\nCameron Diaz, on Sex Tape\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt's just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean, you see everything.\n\n\n\n\nDaniel Radcliffe, on Kill Your Darlings\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI was talked through it by the director [John Krokidas]. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really fucking painful. And he said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity. \n\n\n\n\nMichael Douglas, on Behind the Candelabra\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe hardest thing about sex scenes is that everybody is a judge. I don't know the last time you murdered somebody or blew anyone's brains out, but everyone has had sex and probably this morning, which means everyone has an opinion on how it should be done. \n\n\n\n\nRobert Pattinson, on Breaking Dawn\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI think the more comfortable you are with each other, the harder it gets to do any kind of really intense relationship scene. You're kind of thinking, 'I don't want to embarrass myself in front of this person. \n\n\n\n\n\n\nJason Stratham on Crank 2: High Voltage \n\n\n\n\n\n\nTrying to do an aggressive sex scene is quite difficult. Especially in a public place with a crowd of screaming extras with their little camera phones going click-click, taking pictures of your pasty white ass. I've had my fair share of bedroom antics in films, but they were a little more private. \n\n\n\n\n\n\nMila Kunis, on Black Swan\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt's hard to have a sex scene, period. It doesn't matter if it's a friend, a male, a female. You're with 100-something crew members, lighting you, repositioning you, there's no comfort whatsoever.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nKristen Wiig, on Bridesmaids\n\n\n\n\n\n\n There's some good positions in there. Jon Hamm pumpin' away. He was making his money that day. There was nothing hot about that scene. We weren't, like, looking into each other's eyes. \n\n\n\n\nZac Efron, on sex scene with Heather Graham in At Any Price\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI was nervous because I've been in love with her since I can remember. It was very surreal for me.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nNatalie Portman, on No Strings Attached\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI'm pretty immature, so I get pretty embarrassed still. But yeah, you \u2026 I would, like, check out once in a while, certain shots to make sure I felt OK. Because sometimes once you see it, like, there was one of the panties coming off that we did, and after I watched it I was like, Oh that's not bad, because it was really quick. It wasn't like, lingering on anything that I felt, you know, modest about or anything. I checked a little. You do sort of go the opposite direction between takes. 'Oh, what are you doing this weekend?' Like, totally benign conversation between to make it a little normal.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAshton Kutcher, on No Strings Attached\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI just start by apologizing \u2026 I think somebody told me, and I'm not sure who the actor was. I think it was Sir Laurence Olivier who said it, but \u2026 I always use Sir Laurence. When in doubt, use Sir Laurence Olivier. I think he said something to the effect of, "I apologize if I get aroused and I apologize if I do not get aroused." And you have to say it with the accent if you do it. But there is sort of always this awkward state of, is this OK, is that OK? And then in between it's like, just, let's act like nothing happened. And then you see how good of an actor you really are.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAmanda Seyfried, on Chloe\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt was so \u2026 awkward. And you can never destroy that awkwardness; it's always going to be there \u2014 even when you're with somebody for the first time in real life. It's just strange.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAnne Hathaway, on Love and Other Drugs \n\n\n\n\n There is that revoltingly embarrassing moment when you have to take your clothes off in front of strangers. I mean, I don't go to the beach in a bikini for a reason. So I thought,OK, I'm going to be in control. I'm going to do everything properly, disrobe at the last minute, and in between shots get the clothes back on. But then I found that every time I put my robe back on, it rubbed all the body makeup off, and that added 20 minutes to filming. As with all things in life, the second you stop making it about you and you make it about everyone else, it just got, dare I say, fun.\n\n\n\n\nYael Stone, on Orange Is the New Black \n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe sex scenes are also a privilege, and we have to see it that way. If it's written by great people \u2014 these people that write the show are really smart, we can trust them \u2014 I do feel like those scenes are really necessary. It's a big part of [prison] life. To be able to go into those private moments, and be authentic with that \u2026 that's what I'm interested in.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nLizzy Caplan, on Masters of Sex\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI was so nervous and then I was so drunk that after I shot the scene I was going up to the crew members \u2014 I had just met all these people the day before \u2014 and I was going up to all of them being like [imitates drunk self], 'You gotta boner! You do! You got one!' It was horrible.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nJemima Kirke, on Girls\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThey are mortifying. You've got hundreds of people watching \u2026 I'm doing a real orgasm \u2014 not "real," but the way I know it sounds in real life, because I don't know how to fake it \u2026 That's embarrassing\n\n\n\n\n\n\nVanessa Hudgens, on Spring Breakers\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt was very nerve-wracking for me. I told my agent I never want to ever do it again.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt was very nerve-wracking for me. I told my agent I never want to ever do it again. - Vanessa Hudgens, on Spring Breakers\n\n\n\nThe sex scene was really awkward. It was my first day\u2026 so I guess it was good to break the ice. - Blake Lively, on The Town\n\n\n\nKeira Knightly, on A Dangerous Method\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n[I did] a couple of shots of vodka \u2014 definitely \u2014 beforehand, and then a couple of glasses of champagne as a celebration of never having to do that again!\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI wanted it to be truthful, I wanted it to be raw, I wanted it to be real. \u2014 Reese Witherspoon, on Wild\n\n\n\nTaylor Schilling, on Orange Is the New Black\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThere's always that jumping off place when you're doing a sex scene when you can tell the crew's like, 'OK, it's comin'. At this point, it's actually not a big deal.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOne of the first scenes we had to do, we were in a shower together. But the cool thing is, we're so comfortable with each other, so that's really great. We totally trust each other, which is awesome. Laura Prepon, on shooting with Taylor Schilling in Orange Is the New Black \n\n\n\n\n There is always a particularly large and hairy man holding a boom wearing a crop top. I don't know if they're like, 'Ooh, sex scene, where's my crop top because I need to hover above Olivia, make sure my hairy belly is somewhere in the vicinity of her face.' People imagine it's this really glamorous and sexy thing, but I always laugh because in reality there are 50 people in the room. You are stopping and starting. There is someone yelling, like, 'Can you move your hand, can you just put your shoulder down, OK, good, more, more \u2026 - Olivia Wilde\n\n\n\n\nIt'd be weird if he was like, 'Ah, I'm cool with it, do whatever,' you know? It's never fun [shooting love scenes], but you just get really used to it, it's weird. They [Channing and her male co-stars] are, like, really good friends, so it's even more awkward. 'Yeah, we have this love scene, but we were just hangin' with our wives and husbands \u2026' It's acting, you know, it's weird. - Jenna Dewan -Tatum, on Witches of East End \n\n\n\nEmmy Rossum, on Shameless\n\n\n\n\n\n\n We like it to be realistic but not real, but I wear something I call the 'vag pad,' it's kind of a little triangular panty liner that you stick to you.
