Rob revealed that though he was nervous about filming the love scenes with Javier, he was happy that the scenes turned out looking appealing. "It was hard to watch my first scene, in which I turn up in this funny little hat," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying. "I was worried about watching them, but DalÍ and Lorca's sex scenes were in fact the best scenes," he added.
Rob, who has just done only a few flicks in Hollywood, also said that he was not worried about how his female fans would react to his portrayal of a gay painter in Little Ashes. "I don't really mind either way. I'm not really trying to appeal to anyone in particular," he said.
