SAVAGES: Taylor Kitsch Calls Sex Scenes With Blake Lively “Awkward”
Gathered press gasps in horror; rushes for nearest bank of payphones.
Does it make you a cad if you fake-kiss-and-tell?
You can ask Blake Lively her opinion, now that her Savages co-star Taylor Kitsch is dropping easily spinnable quotes about their sex scenes, and how glad he was to get them over with. Kitsch and Lively comprise two-thirds of the love triangle in the new Oliver Stone film due out next month.
Savages focuses on the aforementioned love triangle, which also features Aaron Johnson, who plays Kitsch’s best friend while also banging the Lively character silly. And when these three wacky lovebirds aren’t tangled up making a DNA bisque out of their Laguna Beach apartment? They’re growing weed. Good weed. Before long, they find themselves in a whole different kind of tangle, this time with the Mexican drug cartel.
Of course, Taylor Kitsch was just dropping the standard company line in regards to love scenes. You know, about how horrible and awkward and unromantic it is to make out with one of the world’s most desirable babes in front of a crew of teamsters on a big movie set. And you can believe that, because one thing about actors–they’re no exhibitionists.
“I was just glad it was over with, to be honest. It’s very awkward to do, to be honest.” That’s the quote Kitsch dropped for reporters at a press conference for Savages, which was giddily spread to us via the Hollywood Reporter. It’s as run-of-the-mill and innocuous as quotes get. Factor in Lively: instant headlines. I can’t doubt the veracity of Kitsch’s statement, if only because nothing makes the truth ring like asserting your honesty in consecutive sentences.
The Kitsch quote strikes me as being imagineered to stir up the maximum level of buzz, while also raising awareness of the fact that Lively is going to get bent over a chair at some point in the early going. The quote itself doesn’t necessarily make me any more curious to see Savages. Of course, it’s not necessarily turning me off, either.
Savages is due out in theaters on July 6th.
