Liv says acting out sex scenes onscreen is almost like going to the bathroom on a stage — if YOU were an actress, would you be able to do it?

Liv Tyler is absolutely stunning in person — it’s no wonder she has so many love scenes! spoke to Liv, 33, at the NYC premiere of her new film The Ledge, hosted by the Cinema Society & Grey Goose, and she revealed she always gives her input before stripping down!

“Sexuality is a very intimate thing,” she tells us. “It’s like somebody asking you to go to the bathroom on a stage in front of a thousand people, or something. You just feel very vulnerable in that position. But I always try to convince directors, since in nearly every movie I star in there seems to be nude or love scenes, I always say, ‘You know, do I really have to be like that? Because in real life people just pull their skirt up or a boob pops out!'”

In Liv’s new film The Ledge, she plays a married woman who has an affair with her boss, played by Charlie Hunnam.

“For this movie, that vulnerability was really important,” she says. “Because that [sex] scene was really important to the movie.”

We must say the film is shocking, devastating, and has sexual tension you could cut with a knife. Check out The Ledge when it comes to a theater near you!
