While most actors dread the filming of a raunchy romp with their co-stars, Hugh Grant has revealed he has quite the opposite reaction!
In a new interview with W magazine, the 56-year-old actor joked that he found it much harder to film ‘love’ scenes as opposed to ‘sex scenes’.

Referencing his famous roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, Hugh told the publication that he found love scenes “extremely difficult”.
“You’re always within a millimetre of sentimentality and ‘yuck.’ But sex scenes are something else!” he said.
“The conventional response to sex scenes is that they’re horrible and not sexy and it’s all so unnatural. But I’ve always found filming sex scenes to be quite a turn-on.
“I like the experience of being in a sexual position when you’re not supposed to be in one.”
It’s a far cry from other actors who have been vocal about their discomfort of filming romantic scenes.
Ahead of the release of Fifty Shades of Grey last year, star Dakota Johnson opened up about how “filming a sex scene is not a sensual or pleasurable environment”.
“It’s really hot – not in a steamy, sexual way. It’s just sweaty and it’s not very comfortable.”
