Hollywood Celebs Share Their Experiences of Shooting Hot Scenes

We see a movie, we see an adult scene, some we like and some feel weird. So, yes celebrities also find themselves doing such scenes to be awkward. Every time they do an s scene they prepare so much to shoot that. Here’re some of the celebrities who talk about the shooting s3x scenes:

1. Leonardo DiCaprio

“It was all me, pal. All the flopping around, all the everything was all me. When you take on a character like this and you want to accurately reflect the nature of who these people are, you just gotta do it. You can’t think about yourself, because it’s not me, it’s a depiction of somebody else.” — Leonardo DiCaprio, on Wolf of Wall Street

2. Keira Knightly

“[I did] a couple of shots of vodka — definitely — beforehand, and then a couple of glasses of champagne as a celebration of never having to do that again!” — Keira Knightly, on A Dangerous Method

3. Kate Winslet

“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

4. Justin Timberlake

“It’s actually kind of annoying, you’re there for 12 hours, it’s exhausting.” — Justin Timberlake

5. Jason Statham

“Trying 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.” — Jason Stratham, on Crank 2: High Voltage

6. James Marsden

“Those are always daunting scenes when you see them on the schedule. You’re counting the days. Kirsten was like, ‘Come on, whatever. Let’s have fun doing it and let’s go for it.'” — James Marsden, on sex scene with Kirsten Dunst in Bachelorette

7. Jake Gyllenhaal

“I’ve had a pretty illustrious career at this point, but the hardest thing has been pretending to be turned on by Anne Hathaway. And I pride myself on really having pulled it off.” — Jake Gyllenhaal, on Love and Other Drugs

8. Daniel Radcliffe

“I 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.” — Daniel Radcliffe, on Kill Your Darlings

9. Cameron Diaz

“It’s just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean, you see everything.” — Cameron Diaz, on Sex Tape

10. Bradley Cooper

“I remember saying, ‘What if we wear tube socks, and I’ll go up on the wall, and you’ll come from behind me.’ And I said in the scene, ‘Say my name,’ and Michael says, ‘Ben!’ And I say, ‘No! Say my Christian name,’ and he whispers, ‘Benjamin,’ and that’s when I came.”— Bradley Cooper, on Wet Hot American Summer

11. Blake Lively

“The sex scene was really awkward. It was my first day… so I guess it was good to break the ice.” — Blake Lively, on The Town

12. Ben Stiller

“You kind of just have to, when you’re doing it, serve the story and try and be as real and in the moment and do what’s required.” — Ben Stiller, on Greenberg

13. Aston Kutcher

“I just start by apologizing … 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 … 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.” — Ashton Kutcher, on No Strings Attached

14. Anne Hathaway

“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.” — Anne Hathaway, on Love and Other Drugs

15. Angelina Jolie

“You 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.” — Angelina Jolie, on directing a sex scene for In the Land of Blood and Honey

16. Amanda Seyfried

“It was so … awkward. And you can never destroy that awkwardness; it’s always going to be there — even when you’re with somebody for the first time in real life. It’s just strange” — Amanda Seyfried, on Chloe

17. Lizzy Caplan

“I was so nervous and then I was so drunk that after I shot the scene I was going up to the crew members — I had just met all these people the day before — 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.” — Lizzy Caplan, on Masters of Sex

18. Zac Efron

“I was nervous because I’ve been in love with her since I can remember. It was very surreal for me.” — Zac Efron, on sex scene with Heather Graham in At Any Price

19. Vanessa Hudgens

“It was very nerve-wracking for me. I told my agent I never want to ever do it again.” — Vanessa Hudgens, on Spring Breakers

20. Ryan Reynolds

 “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.” — Ryan Reynolds, on The Change-Up

21. Ryan Gosling

“You mean the trying-not-to-have-sex sex scene? It was hard … 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.” — Ryan Gosling, on Blue Valentine

22. Rosamund Pike

“You’re alone with a man who’s not your husband who also has a husband … he’s in his underwear, you’re in your underwear, and you’re sort of dry humping on a bed.” — Rosamund Pike, on shooting a sex scene with Neil Patrick Harris in Gone Girl

23. Robert Pattinson

“I 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.'” — Robert Pattinson, on Breaking Dawn

24. Reese Witherspoon

“I wanted it to be truthful, I wanted it to be raw, I wanted it to be real.” — Reese Witherspoon, on Wild

25. Olivia Wilde

“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 …'” — Olivia Wilde, on sex scenes in general

26. Neil Patrick Harris

“We 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.” — Neil Patrick Harris, on shooting a sex scene with Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl

27. Natalie Portman

“I’m pretty immature, so I get pretty embarrassed still. But yeah, you … 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.” — Natalie Portman, on No Strings Attached

28. Mila Kunis

“It’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.” — Mila Kunis, on Black Swan

29. Michelle Williams

“We shot the beginning of our relationship first, and it was fun and alive. Then we did the sex scenes and it was … 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.” — Michelle Williams, on sex scenes with Ryan Gosling in Blue Valentine

30. Michael Fassbender

“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.” — Michael Fassbender, on Jane Eyre
