In a recent interview, American actress and mother of three, Jessica Alba, revealed the harsh difficulties of filming love scenes in movies.
Recently, Alba and her hubby Cash Warren appeared on The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast, Alba, 38, and the couple discussed why it’s been helpful to have a partner “who understands” the Hollywood industry.
“What’s nice about having a partner who understands the business… is that he understands what it takes to do it,” Alba shared. “I’m working 16 hours a day, it’s not glamorous, it’s pretty intense.”Jessica Alba, Actress.
Cash Warren, 40, then made a joke that filming sex scenes is one part of his wife’s job that he doesn’t understand.
“The one part of the business I don’t fully understand is that there’s no way hooking up with someone else is not fun,” he said. “She’s always like, ‘Oh there’s so many people around, the director’s there.’ But you’re still having fun, that dude’s a stud… there’s no way you’re not gonna enjoy hooking up with him.”Cash Warren, 40, Movie Producer
Alba then pointed out “I guess that’s the difference between me and you. It’s disgusting most of the time because [costars] are usually a stranger.”
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren together have three kids; Hayes Alba, 1½, and daughters Haven Garner, 7½, and Honor Marie, 11 next month.
During the podcast, the sultry actress gave examples of famous actors she had filmed love scenes with. Alba recalled starring alongside Pierce Brosnan in 2014’s Some Kind of Beautiful and Bruce Willis in 2005’s Sin City.
She explained that although the actors were both handsome, it was still a difficult task having to portray a sense of intimacy.
“I think Pierce Brosnan and Bruce Willis are very attractive gentlemen, but like, it’s weird,” the Honest Company founder admitted.
“When you’re choosing to want to be with someone in that way, it’s very intimate,” she went on. “You’re breathing on someone, it’s all there, you’re smelling the skin… You want to choose who you’re doing that with, and you gotta really pretend.”
When podcast host Lauryn Evarts Bosstick joked about needing a shot of tequila to be able to film the scenes, Jessica Alba replied, “I do have to, I’m gonna say I’m unprofessional, 100 percent. Because I feel like really good entertainment people don’t have to do that.”
She continued, “Sometimes it’s days and days of the same thing, and you have to recreate that moment every time, recreate the peak of your intimacy from this angle and that angle and this angle and that angle,” she continued. “And by the way — everyone’s right here! Nothing about it is alone in the room.”
