Sarah Michelle Gellar nearly fell asleep during her sex scene in 'Southland Tales'.
The 30-year-old actress - who plays a porn star in the new film - struggled to stay awake for the raunchy sequence because she had just eaten a huge Thanksgiving turkey dinner.
She said: "I filmed a love scene on Thanksgiving and I had eaten all this turkey and mashed potatoes. I was like, 'I seriously have to film a sex scene right now?' I was so tired from all the tryptophan - an amino acid in turkey that makes you sleepy - that I just wanted to sleep!"
Gellar also claims she knew she had made it as an actress when she saw a porn spin-off of her hit US TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'.
She added to Britain's Maxim magazine: "I think there was a 'Muffy the Vampire Layer'. We had a cast viewing in one of the trailers. You know you've made it when they make a porn version of you!"
