The only thing better than an excellently-filmed, superbly-acted sex scene? Hugh Jackman’s sex scene with Jennifer Garner in their upcoming political comedy Butter, because it was humiliating. “I did probably one of the most embarrassing things I had to do on a movie set, or funny anyway,” the Real Steal actor told the Huffington Post. Other than star in Scoop, right Hugh? Scoop must be a close runner-up.
“We have an off-screen love scene, Jen and I, and it takes place in the back of a car, you don’t see anything. We had to record it in a car,” Hugh explained. Unfortunately, technical issues required the sound people to record Garner and Jackman separately. As Hugh explains, “And so, we both had to kind of perform our version, in character, of sex while the other one is quiet. And it was impossible not to be laughing your head off while the other person is doing it. That was humiliating… Guys never sound good during sex. It’s impossible to sound good.”Oh please, like 60% of the Earth’s population wouldn’t want to hear that, Hugh. Either way, we bet you still sounded better than Scoop sounded on the big screen. Seriously, that was not a particularly good movie!
