Former 'Mad Men' star Elisabeth Moss has confessed she felt "awkward" making false moans during the sex scenes in her upcoming film 'High-Rise'
Elisabeth Moss says the worse part of filming a sex scene is "the sounds you have to make".
The 33-year-old actress felt "awkward" during intimate scenes in 'High-Rise' in which she played pregnant character Helen Wilder opposite Luke Evans, who stars as her husband Richard Wilder.
While the former 'Mad Men' star revealed Luke was "gentlemanly" for the sequences, she added "Those things are so awkward. At a certain point you're like, 'Well let's just do it. And the worst part is the sounds you have to make."
Thor's Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Keeley Hawes also star in the dystopian satire that focuses on an orgy of sex, drugs and ultra violence set in a 1970s elite tower block.
And Moss was thrilled to be a part of the project because the risky subject matter and unusual setting made her feel like she was a part of something "naughty" and there was no way of knowing how it would be received by audiences.
She told the Metro newspaper: "It feels like you're doing something a little bit naughty. And this felt like that: we're making something we really liked and we thought was cool but you never know if anyone else is going to think the same."
'High-Rise' is based on J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel of the same name and has been directed by Ben Wheatley.
