12 Actors who admit to being aroused during filming [+Photos]
Most actors will tell you that shooting sex scenes can be pretty awkward. We’ve all heard the stories about how camera crews and directors can make a love scene especially uncomfortable by being close to the actors while they are nearly naked and pretending to be deeply in love. There are also stories about actors who had to pretend to make love to each other on screen, when they actually hated each other in real life.
However, there are some actors who admit that they like filming sex scenes. It’s a chance to get to know another actor intimately without cheating on one’s significant other. Of course, it’s also a chance for actors to show their range and depth, but we can bet not too many of them are thinking about that when they’re “in the moment”. Some actors even admit that they get a little “excited” when shooting these scenes. Yes, there are usually covers for actors’ private parts during love scenes, but that’s not always enough for actors to keep things “professional”. And hey, sometimes your body betrays you and displays your true feelings before you have a chance to regain control. Here are 12 actors who admit to being aroused during filming.
12. Mindy Kaling
Actor, director and writer Mindy Kaling, has admitted that she actually likes when a show she’s in, calls for a sex scene. She also says that lots of actors enjoy this, but they’re just afraid to admit it. After all, it’s not very smart to publicly admit that you enjoy love scenes when you’re in a committed relationship with someone else. Kaling shares that while love scenes are “obviously” not real, she says that “as any religious high schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well.” As far as we know, no other actor has disagreed with her, so Kaling may have a point.
