In his latest turn on the big screen, Taylor Kitsch has segued from superimposed special effects … to super awkward sex scenes.
Getting up close and personal with Blake Lively in the crime-thriller Savages, due in theaters July 6, was just as tough as tackling alien forces in Battleship, the Canadian actor, 31, told reporters.
“It’s very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest,” Kitsch said about their sex scenes together. “And it’s such a big part of [my character] and who he is, and that’s how you meet him. So it’s a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended
Kitsch says there wasn’t much time to get to know each other before they had to film the intense – albeit brief – intimate scenes.
“A lot of sexual improv was going on there,” he says. “God knows we had two weeks of rehearsal, so we talked until we were about to pass out, and then [we shot the sex scenes] on the day I think I knew Blake three days … four days maybe.”
