‘Filming sex scene with Brad was the strangest thing’
Hollywood star Angelina Jolie (far right) says it was quite awkward to film sex scenes with her husband, actor Brad Pitt (inset), for their new movie, By The Sea. The two, who tied the knot last year, are currently directing and starring as a married couple in the film. Jolie, 40, has admitted that it was difficult to get intimate on screen.
“It’s the strangest thing in the world to be lying naked in a bathtub with an iPad that’s showing you the shot outside, while your husband is at the door and you’re directing him to come in and make love to you in front of a bunch of other men with cameras,” she told Entertainment Weekly magazine.
And it wasn’t just Jolie who was struggling to get frisky in front of a crowd of cameramen, as 51-year-old Brad’s protective instincts kicked in and he refused to let anyone see his spouse parading around without her clothes on. “I couldn’t get out of the bathtub to get to the monitor because the director is naked. We’re artists and want to be free, but Brad — it’s his wife! He was on towel duty. He’d hold the towel over me,” she said.
