In Blake Lively‘s new film, “Savages,” she plays a woman with two boyfriends — played by the super-hot Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson — but there’s no actual love triangle. The guys are perfectly content with sharing their lady. Lucky for viewers, there are plenty of sex scenes early in the movie.
Unfortunately, Kitsch says he didn’t feel too lucky getting naked with Lively. “It’s very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest,” he admits. The fact that the sex scenes are really important to his character’s development didn’t ease the pressure any. “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 and Lively had only known each other a few days before they had to get down to it, because the sex scenes were some of the first ones they shot. “A lot of sexual improv was going on there,” Kitsch tells reporters. “God knows we had
two weeks of rehearsal, so we talked until we were about to pass out,
and then [we shot them] on the day I think I knew Blake three
days … four days maybe.”
We’re kind of stuck on “sexual improv.” Give us a minute.
