Whether it’s real life couples, or just really good acting, these actors left our screens hot and steamy. So much so that it’s hard to tell the difference between real sex or just movie magic. It doesn’t help when the actors don’t deny doing the deed, and the rumors spread like wild fire.
Real life couple (during filming) Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise started filming “Eyes Wide Shut” in 1996. The film didn’t actually release until 1999, but the whole production was shrouded with secrecy. So much secrecy in fact, that it wasn’t until 10 years after the movie’s release that star Nicole Kidman spoke out about her nudity and sex scenes with her then husband Tom Cruise. Audiences have been convinced for years that the scenes are real, and Kidman didn’t squash the rumors. She spoke about how director, Stanley Kubrick, had to coax her into performing the kinky scenes with Cruise. In the interview Kidman did confront the rumors that “Eyes Wide Shut” was the beginning of the end of her marriage to Cruise, claiming that the couple was really close at the time, and the rumors were false.
Another real life couple that shared some on screen steam is Anna Paquin and Steven Moyer. The couple was filming a scene for “True Blood” where Anna’s character, Sookie Stackhouse, has a hot make up scene with her main love interest, Steven’s Character, Bill Compton. The scene was actually so hot that viewers were left questioning if the couple actually got intimate on camera. Moyer has been recorded saying, “I think that one great bonus is that we don’t need a fluffer”, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Not all intimate scenes actual couples, in fact, in this video not all scenes involve two people. In 2008 Robert Pattinson starred as Salvador Dali, in the movie “Little Ashes”. In the film, there is an iconic scene that shows Pattinson pleasuring himself. The scene seemed so real that audiences even critiqued Pattinson’s O face. The twilight star later revealed to a German Magazine, that the scene was actually authentic, and he was in fact pleasuring himself on camera. He even went on to say that the film almost made him give up acting.
Another, very authentic intimate scene listed in this video took place in “The Brown Bunny”. In this 2003 indie film, actress Chloe Sevigny was relatively unknown. Her character is seen giving director, and male star, Vincent Gallo, fellacio. The first release of the movie was received with horrible reviews; it even had people walking out. The film has now become known for this one scene. Also, the fact that the movie’s director starred in the film, made many women angry as they thought he was taking advantage of Sevigny. Sevigny has come to the films defense, and stated, ”I’m really angry at the way everyone’s trivializing it. It’s a really intense romantic scene, really beautiful. It’s not gratuitous, it’s deep. I do it in everyday life. Everybody’s done it, or had it done to them.”
With all the tricks Hollywood filmmakers have up their sleeves, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s movie magic. These actors’ scenes are so believable, that they still have fans demanding answers. Even after the actors have claimed the scenes are real or not, the rumor mills keep spinning, and fans continue to speculate online. What are some actors who did in on screen that were missed?
