Let me take you behind the scenes.
Our eyes shine like glittering stars when we think about lovemaking scenes that we see in the movies. And, if it doesn’t happen, you are probably lying.
Shooting those scenes is not an easy task as things can get pretty uncomfortable on the sets. When we watch those scenes, we have the least idea of what might have gone in the background.
Sometimes, the behind the scenes stories get revealed by the actors and actresses themselves during the interviews, and that’s when we come to know their hardships. Here, in this story, we’ve gathered the unheard instances associated with lovemaking scenes of some famous movies. So, have a look!

2. The Change-Up
The scene in which Olivia Wilde sits on the lap of Ryan Reynolds with bare chest had an interesting story associated with it.

And I forget every line in the scene – not just from this movie but from every other movie I’ve done.”
3. Last Tango in Paris
