Actor Josh Lucas admits that the seedy scenes in his new movie left him feeling dirty and ‘strange’. The Sweet Home Alabama star, who plays a con man who craves crazy sex in the film, says that he has been left scarred after doing nine very hardcore sex simulation scenes with naked women he’d never met.
"One of the weirdest days of my life was the day my character put an ad on (website) CraigsList for 20 women from the ages of 19-65 for the sex montage scene,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
"I filmed nine very hardcore sex simulation scenes with women I never met with all of us completely naked. At the end of the day I felt crazy! It's something that I think only porn stars actually do in their life when they come in contact with that many people on that level.
"You're sharing body fluids whether you like it or not, sweat and sensation. I could never be a porn star. I was shook up. I did not walk away from that thinking, ''Oh, that was fun.'' It was very strange," he added. Lucas says that is now keen to do a family-friendly film.
"I was a mess for 30 days. He's so full of pain and self-hatred. I was living that every day and rage and guilt and traumatic things and my body felt pretty whacked,” he said. "At the end of the day I'd crawl away and my dreams were pretty weird," he added.
