It’s a question many of us have: What’s it like to film a sex scene, or have an on-screen romance when you’re happily married to someone back at home? Blake Lively thinks her own marriage helps sex scenes, and the reason why is pretty adorable.
As you know, Lively married actor Ryan Reynolds back in 2012, and the couple has two daughters together. In the past, Lively noted that Reynolds was her friend for a few years before they started a romantic relationship, so she knows how to communicate with him pretty well.
So we’d wager a guess that these two are the kind of people who fall more in love with each other every day.
“In general, it’s nice to have somebody who understands what you’re doing,” she said on Good Morning America. “Especially because our job is so weird — you have to be married to other people, it’s all so strange. It’s never normal, even when we’re both doing it.”
We never realized how weird it must be if they both film movies at the same time with someone else filling the role of “significant other” on set. But it’s happened so often that Lively and Reynolds both know it’s just part of the job.
“It’s helpful to know when you’re acting that you’re in a relationship with someone, that that’s not what’s actually happening,” she continued. “Because I have friends who aren’t married to someone who’s in the business, so they’re like, ‘Oh, so you’re not actually making love in that scene?!’ And I’m like, ‘No, no, no, no, definitely not.'”
