Two industry folks are letting us know that what you are seeing during the promotions of this film is very unusual… and might actually hurt the film’s success at the box office!
From a cast/crew member:
I’ve been on a lot of movie sets during a lot of potentially uncomfortable sex scenes. These two are both pros and knew the drill. The scenes were choreographed, rehearsed several times, and went off without a hitch. For her to now act all coy and say it was awkward like she wants to distance herself from him doesn’t match what I saw.
From a publicist:
During promotions they should be emphasizing the closeness and the real emotional connection between the two leads. That’s what people want to see and that’s what sells a film. In this case, they are very distant and dismissive of their personal relationship. It’s an odd choice and does not serve the film well.
Maybe this has something to do with his divorce?
