Alex Pettyfer stars in romantic flick 'Endless Love' alongside Gabriella Wilde and found filming love scenes "awkward", especially since they were joined by crew who were directing the intimate moment
Alex Pettyfer found filming sex scenes for 'Endless Love' awkward.
The 23-year-old actor stars alongside Gabriella Wilde, who plays his love interest in the romantic drama, and he found the presence of crew who were directing the intimate scenes killed off any romance they shared.
He told collider.com: "It's so awkward! We had a scene where we make love for the first time, and she's very awkward because she's never done it.
"You think these things are romantic and sensual. You come in, in your robe. It's all quiet, and you take off your robe. You start to kiss Gabriella, and then you look to your right and there's a big burly man standing there with a light over you going, 'Just move to your right a little bit.'
"And you go, 'Okay, this is not so romantic.' The nerves go away very fast."
Pettyfer admits he shares a "connection" with his co-star and thinks their relationship was made easier by director Shana Feste.
He added: "She's very easy going. She's English, and I'm English. There was a connection that we could build off of there. Shana set the atmosphere and the environment for us to become close and to become friends."
