“They would superglue it to my body so that it would not fall off.”
Sex scenes may look hot and steamy on screen, but behind-the-scenes, there’s actually a lot of work involved.
In fact, sex scenes that were filmed in the past few years have practically become stunt work, with lots of prep and choreography – and celebs are spilling the secrets about how it’s really done.
Here’s what these stars had to say about how sex scenes are filmed:
Phoebe Dynevor says sex scenes have to be well rehearsed and “practical.”
Jonathan Bailey noted that there are always at least three barriers separating people.
But Sarah Silverman says that it has not always been that way, and in the past, there was sometimes nothing between her and her costar.
Dakota Johnson shared that you sometimes have undergarments glued to your body.
Natalie Portman admitted that the whole thing can get really awkward when you know your costar IRL.
Blake Lively revealed that sex scenes are sometimes shot on the first day of filming.
Olivia Wilde says there used to always be a ton of people in the room – but she’s working on changing that.
Daisy Edgar-Jones revealed that shooting sex scenes are similar to doing stunts.
And Chris Pratt says that a lot of responsibility falls on the male actor to make sure their partner is comfortable.
