Surprise: Filming a sex scene really isn't very sexy. Actors talk constantly about how awkward it is to shoot a love scene with a costar, but it looks so good on-screen that sometimes it's hard to believe. Now, though, there's proof, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video of Brooklyn Decker and Patrick Wilson in bed together on the set of their upcoming movie Stretch.
The mildly NSFW clip — which has been viewed more than 2 million times since it was posted on Sept. 26 — shows the Conjuring actor lying on top of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model as they prepare to roll camera on a particularly steamy scene. After several seconds of awkward chatting, giggling, and, ahem, repositioning, the director, Joe Carnahan, calls action, and they…well, get busy.
Afterward, Wilson quips, "Was that enough f—ing?" Carnahan says it was "great" — but he needs more. "Do another one like that, and we got it, I swear," he says, as a crew member mists the actors with fake sweat.
The filmmaker then comes over to give them some notes on what to do differently. All the while, Wilson and Decker — both married to other people — are lying tangled in the sheets so as not to mess up the shot.
Stretch costars Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, Chris Pine, Ray Liotta, and Norman Reedus. It's available for download on iTunes and Amazon beginning Oct. 7.
