Just because it’s fun to watch doesn’t mean it’s fun to make. It only takes a few minutes to watch your favorite movie scenes, but unless the cast and crew were incredibly lucky, it probably took hours to shoot them.
And while a scene may seem really cool or funny when they start working on it, it’s pretty common for it to lose its magic by around the 50th take. After all, acting can be an amazing, rewarding job, but it’s still a job.
It stands to reason that a particularly steamy sex scene often isn’t going to feel that sexy for the actors. When actors talk about these scenes in interviews, they often describe them more as awkward, uncomfortable or exhausting.
Still, whether these scenes were enjoyable or not, they can still make for some interesting stories.
