When most actors and actresses are asked about having to film their ~steamy~ scenes, they typically describe situations in which physical discomfort and awkwardness are the feelings that prevail. These scenes may look sexy AF, but a majority of Hollywood’s elite make sure the world knows that’s purely movie magic and just about as real as the CGI hippogriff Buckbeak in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Every once in a while, however, actors veer from the norm and say that they actually like filming these hot performances! While on the one hand, that’s kind of weird, on the other hand — when life gives you lemons, make lemonade? We know the audience is diggin’ it, so if an actor is able to enjoy himself, too, that should be a good thing.
While Ian's ex-girlfriend and former Vampire Diaries co-star, Nina Dobrev, has been open about that fact that sex scenes were seriously not her fave, Ian has basically the opposite reaction!
The 38-year-old stud told HuffPost Live that those love scenes "are always interesting. They're fun." He continued, "I mean, look — if you can't have fun doing that then something's wrong." Guess he's saying something is wrong with literally SO many people in Hollywood but... whatever, Ian.

At this point, Zac's no newbie to sex scenes. When asked about filming his steamy sex encounters in The Lucky One, the actor said, "It's not a bad day on set. Taylor [Schilling] was lovely. I had an amazing costar. She was beautiful and so talented."
Besides Taylor, Imogen Poots, Nicole Kidman and Heather Graham were also lucky enough to film sexy scenes with Zac! He called his scene with Heather "surreal," because he'd been crushing on her for a while!
Zac's said that the only awkward part of those hot on-screen moments is having to talk about them in interviews after the fact. LOL.

When the first Fifty Shades movie came out, Jamie and Dakota Johnson told the world that sex scenes were awkward AF, but by the time the second film rolled around and the two stars had become more comfortable with one another, Jamie learned to have fun with it!
The father of two said on The Graham Norton Show, "My temptation is always just to try to make Dakota laugh, so sometimes I'll do things, like, when there's a moment where I'm meant to, you know, orgasm, I'll be like, [makes the sports game organ "Charge!" sound]."
Sounds like Dakota may have started to enjoy herself during these scenes, too!

It's where Scott had a pretend sexual encounter that made it a "nice" experience. "The shower was warm, so that was nice," he said of his scene in The Longest Ride with Britt Robertson. But that wasn't the only thing he said. He told Pride Source, "Being in a shower with a beautiful, sexy woman — I was turned on! I had fun!" We wonder how Britt's BF, Dylan O'Brien, was feeling after he heard Scott say that!

Jon Hamm's hilariously uncomfortable sex scene in Bridesmaids might've been worse to watch than it was to film!
Jon said filming sex scenes is "like running in the rain." He explained, "There's a certain point where you go, 'F*ck it, I'm already wet. I'm not going to get any less wet, so I might as well enjoy how this feels." That's the spirit!

Let's just say, out of all these guys, Hugh's the BIGGEST fan of filming sex scenes. In fact, the guy's gone so far to say that they actually turn him on!
"I like the experience of being in a sexual position when you're not supposed to be in one," he told W magazine. "The conventional response to sex scenes is that they're horrible and not sexy and it's all so unnatural. But I've always found filming sex scenes to be quite a turn-on," he divulged.
Let's just hope his on-screen partners love 'em just as much as he does or that could lead to some seriously awk moments.
