It can never be comfortable doing a sex scene with a stranger, but luckily Britt Robertson had the incredible body of Scott Eastwood to help her. Watch our exclusive interview with ‘The Longest Ride’ leading lady right here!
Nicholas Sparks‘ latest love story will make you laugh, cry and swoon over both Britt Robertson, 24 and Scott Eastwood, 29. The Longest Ride is definitely emotionally and physically revealing, so how did Britt feel completely stripping down for the steamy scenes with her costars? Well it was actually more the anticipation than anything, she revealed to HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Scott Eastwood’s Abs Helped Britt Robertson In ‘The Longest Ride’
“You know, the intimate scenes were filmed later on in the process of shooting, so at that time we were so comfortable with each other,” Britt told us. “It was actually less stressful once we got it over with, because it’s anticipating it — that’s the most uncomfortable part, I think.”
Even if you’ve only seen the trailer, you know there’s a shower scene and many more bed scenes that get pretty hot and heavy.
“Because Scott is so comfortable showing his body all the time, it made me more comfortable!” she added. “I didn’t want to be the lame girl who’s like, ‘Oh, I’m so modest. I don’t know what to do this acting, oh it’s so weird.’ So it made me more confident… But no, normally I’m not as free and willing to expose myself like he is.”
Britt’s Toughest Challenge
So for Britt, the bigger challenge was actually the emotional connection.
“Some days it was a lot easier to get there emotionally, some days it’s not,” she explained. “For me that was the challenge, just taking one day at a time.”
Well from someone who’s seen the movie, trust me — the connection is there! The Longest Ride is in theaters everywhere on April 10. Go see it!
