He has long been considered a heartthrob but George Clooney's Italian co-star Violente Placido in The American doesn't seem to be all that intimidated by him.

Placido and Clooney had to film some very graphic sex scenes together and she said her 49-year-old co-star confessed he was lacking experience, People magazine online reported.

"He confessed... that he didn't do lots of sex scenes. I felt like this was in a way something new to him, he wasn't that experienced," Placido said.

ClooneyPlacido, who plays prostitute Clara and Clooney's love interest in the film, explained that Clooney had trouble relaxing during the intimate scenes.

But once she convinced Clooney to trust her, it was much easier.

"We had to find a way to make it natural and let your body speak somehow,' Placido said.

"We were very open to one another to try and make it work. We just said 'let's trust each other' and we did. I felt like we had to let ourselves go," she added.

And she insists that the sex scene was a pivotal part of the film hence the need to get it done perfectly.

"It had to look real; it is the turning point for the two characters. I can tell you that watching it, I don't feel as calm as I did when I was on set filming it. Just watching it is a little like... wow," she added.

Clooney plays an assassin called Jack in the movie, a man who is attempting to escape his trade after one last assignment. He hides out in the Italian countryside, which is where he meets Placido's character Clara.
