I don’t think that famous actors deserve a lot of our sympathies. A basic level of respect for their privacy and the dignity of being treated like human beings, sure. But I can’t pretend that I feel bad about long days on set for movie stars when they’re making more than some small countries.
I will say I understand that not all aspects of being a professional actor are as awesome as we might expect them to be. Specifically sex scenes. It might seem awesome to get to make out with hot people in some stage of undress. And that part might actually be awesome. Until your boss comes over to tell you what you’re doing wrong.
Patrick Wilson and Brooklyn Decker star in the upcoming action- comedy Stretch, and prove in this behind the scenes video that two objectively hot people pretending to have sex does not overcome the basic awkwardness of laying mostly naked on top of a coworker. NSFW because, man, this feels uncomfortable.
My favorite part has to be at the 0:55 mark when someone comes in to reapply the fake sweat to Wilson’s back. Because if one thing could make this better, it would be a sweatier back.
