Filming a sex scene with Brad Pitt might sound like a dream, but it was actually more of a nightmare for Marion Cotillard, who co-stars with Pitt in upcoming thriller Allied. At an LA press conference yesterday, the French actress said filming their sex scene was "awkward" and described all the complex choreography and acting that went into it, US Weekly reports. Okay, but we need to be convinced.
"We rehearse and had a very determined choreography, and then it allows you freedom," she said. "When you know exactly what your body will do, then you can act and you can be free to give the emotions and give the feelings because you won’t think, ‘What am I going to do next? Am I going to go on top of him?’ It’s an awkward situation."
That actually does sound kind of horrible, even with Brad Pitt. “We laughed because you need to get it out because this is so weird," said the 41-year-old actress. "And so you get this time of looking at each other and saying, ‘OK, this is so weird.’ And then we go into this and then I’m going on top of you and then we are going to kiss.”
This firmly closes the already-closed door on the rumor that these co-stars had been canoodling (a word reserved entirely for sex-related rumors) on the set of Allied, leading to Pitt's split from Angelina Jolie. Which means we will have to find someone else to blame for the end of Brangelina. Because a simple divorce without any cheating rumors is not enough to get us through the winter.
