London, (ANI): Blake Lively has revealed that a sex scene in her
latest flick The Town is awkward. The 23-year-old
Gossip Girl actress plays a young mum in Ben Affleck's
"Everybody is like, 'There's a steamy scene...' And I'm like,
'Really? You have a very dark life that I don't want to ask you
about!'" the Mirror quoted her as saying. She said that her scenes
with Ben's character are far from sexy.
"It's awkward, it's unromantic and it's also very tragic in a
lot of ways because these are two people that hate each other and
they're stuck in this rut. It was my first day of shooting and if
that's not an ice breaker I don't know what is?" she said.
Blake said she was pleased that the scene wasn't exploitative
and showed the darkness in the couple's characters. "It wasn't
there to be a gratuitous sex scene for the trailer or to get guys
to watch this movie, it's actually a turn off for the audience,
everybody around and for us," she said.
