Behold the awkward reality of what it's like to film a sex scene

Posted on

Sex Scene

Lest you believe a sex scene between gorgeous actors is glamorous, this video is here to disabuse you of that notion: A clip from behind the scenes of the upcoming movie Stretch shows Brooklyn Decker and Patrick Wilson engaging in fictional coitus, and while they quickly snap into character to get it on, the before and after that reveals the uncomfortable reality of filming a sex scene. 

At the start of the nearly two-minute video, Wilson is on top of Decker; they shift around, and Wilson apologizes. Decker tells him he’s good, she was just “lifting it.” They giggle.

Their director, Joe Carnahan tells them, “Great f–king!” after they do the scene. They then get misted with Evian. They take direction and have discussions about their characters. Just what, for instance, would Wilson’s title character say during the act? And, yes, Wilson is on top of Decker the entire time.

If you’re looking for context, Stretch is available Oct. 7 on iTunes and Amazon and Oct. 14 on VOD.
