Ask any actor, and most will admit that filming sex scenes is pretty much the least sexy thing ever (opens in new tab). Unless your idea of sexy is simulating intimacy while a bunch of randoms watch you, in which case more power to you.
But "Team Not Here for Sex Scenes" just got a new spokesperson: Kristen Dunst. Who did *not* enjoy filming her scene with Colin Farrell in The Beguiled.
"I am on the floor and my clothes are being ripped," she said in a recent interview (opens in new tab). "I don't like it, I don't like it. To be honest, I'm like, 'Let's get this over with as fast as possible.'"
Dunst says working with director Sofia Coppola made things slightly easier than working with any given male director who'd want "to shoot it from every angle."
"At least Sofia's like, 'We're going to get this done quick, we're just gonna shoot it here, we'll do three takes, be done,'" she said. Meanwhile, Colin Farrell added, "It's harder for women. And women have in the history of cinema...been more exploited of course, through the means of sexuality, by men than men have. So, it's situations like that, any love scenes that I've been a party to over the years, you just [do] whatever your female dance partner needs."
He added, with an extra flare of feminism, "I really think a woman should be the boss completely in those scenes, whatever she needs to make her comfortable and allow her to have the freedom to do the job she needs to do."
