Celebrities Explain What Movie Sex Scenes Really Are


Lena Dunham on Girls


“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.”


Selena Gomez on Spring Breakers


“It was very nerve-wracking for me. I told my agent I never want to ever do it again.”


Ryan Reynolds on The Change-Up


“So in the scene she’s (Olivia Wilde) 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.”


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.”


Justin Timberlake on Friends with Benefits


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