Shailene Woodley has confessed to always feeling awkward during the filming of sex scenes with her co-stars but admits that can sometimes help the end product

Shailene Woodley says filming sex scenes is always awkward.

The 22-year-old actress has a number of raunchy scenes in Gregg Araki's upcoming drama-thriller 'White Bird in a Blizzard' - including one in which her character Kat loses her virginity - and she's confessed she doesn't think there's anything actors can do to avoid the awkwardness.

She explained: "It's always an awkward situation when you have to pretend to be intimate with someone that you're not actually intimate with ... I think the awkwardness probably lends itself to these great virginity scenes."

Woodley's co-star Shiloh Fernandez (Phil), however, claims he didn't find shooting the scenes uncomfortable and admits he even enjoyed the cringey action.

He told the New York Post newspaper: "It was really just sort of fun for us to dive into this and just laugh at the whole silliness of not having anything sexual happen, and having to wear these pads on your private areas."

'White Bird in a Blizzard' premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year and is released in cinemas worldwide later this month.
