Anyone who has seen an intimate scene in a movie has always wondered: is it awkward? The short answer is yes, it's usually very awkward. A good actor knows how to qualm the nerves, though. Whether it's playing a prank on their scene partner or simply keeping the mood light by cracking bizarre jokes in between takes, there's always something going on that the viewer doesn't see during those steamy moments.
Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street
Margot Robbie and Leonardi DiCaprio filmed a scene that went down in the history if film. The two were actually filming on a pile of money (fake, of course) which apparently wasn't a very great surface to be on. When Robbie got up when the camera's stopped rolling, everyone in the room gasped.
The paper money that they had used for the "bed" was actually extremely sharp... So much so that it left Robbie's back completely turn up with paper cuts! "If anyone is ever planning on having sex on top of a pile of cash: don’t. Or maybe real money is a bit softer...when I got up off the bed, I turned around to get my robe and everyone gasped. They said, 'You look like you’ve been whipped a million times."
