Sex scenes in film history: The celebs with the hottest scenes around
Nowadays, sex scene can appear… cheap. It’s so common to have graphic sex scenes appear in movies that it’s always what we expect. It used to be so scandalous to have a movie that had sex scenes or even implies a sex scene. When sex started to hit the screen, there was a special kind of magic.
Sometimes the best sex scenes are the classiest sex scenes. The best way to find these is to dig into the vault of the past. Which celebrities gave us the hottest stuff back in the day? Here are our top picks for some of the celebs who star in hottest sex scenes in film history.
It’s been nearly fifty years since her death, but still we see Marily Monroe’s face when we think “Hollywood.” She’s gorgeous, talented, down-to-earth, and has this alluring confidence that enchants us all even today. During her time, women were discouraged from even acknowledging sex but Marily Monroe owned her sexuality – a real trailblazer.
While we know she’s been pictured in playboy, she rarely appeared in movies nude. However, her first-ever nude scene was in Something’s Got to Give while she was swimming in a pool. While many thought this was her only nude scene, another nude scene was discovered in The Misfits.
In The Misfits, Marilyn Monroe shares a love scene with Clark Gable and then drops her bedsheet to reveal her totally-naked body. Apparently, this was all Monroe’s idea too – she wanted to kick it up a notch. This scene was thought to be “more passionate” because Monroe has the courage to expose her body and make everyone swoon.
Italian actress & model Monica Bellucci is an embodiment of ertoicism. Along with her outrageously successful career and incredible talent, Bellucci is a sexy icon. In countless films, Bellucci is unafraid of exposing her full body. Famous for her role as Mary Magdalene in Passion of the Christ, Bellucci knows passion like the back of her hand.
Completely ravishing, Bellucci has been thrilling us since the early 1990s. She’s been James Bond’s girl in 007, Cleopatra in Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, a sexy vampire in Dracula, a working prostitute in Shoot em Up, a futuristic trophy wife in The Matrix sequels – you name it. Bellucci has already made all of your dreams come true.
You may think of Ewan McGregor as the wise Obi-wan Kenobi, but actually he has a very long history flashing his bod in sex scenes back in the early 90s. (Not at all what a Jedi master is supposed to do!) The movies that feature McGregor getting it on include Pillow Book, Velvet Goldmine, Trainspotting, & Young Adam.
Talking about The Pillow Book, McGregor says, “There’s tons of sex in that film. We didn’t even bother putting clothes on between scenes.” McGregor’s very natural in his sex scenes and his sentiment towards sex reflects that. He says he’s “It doesn’t matter to me whether someone is in love with a man or a woman.” McGregor also says he loves playing different people and the “sensation” of love & romance. 😉
However, McGregor says he’s keeping his pants on now. Specifically because he says, “I’m getting older and the actresses stay younger. I don’t want to become Clint Eastwood, where his love interests seem 50 years younger than him.” He also notes that sex scenes are “terribly exposing” anyways. While McGregor has said that the world has now seen enough of his penis for now, we can certainly enjoy what we have seen of it.
Charlotte Gainsbourg’s first sex scene was in Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, which she shared with none other than Willem Dafoe. While they reportedly used body doubles, it’s rather clear that the sex is not simulated. The sex seems very real and it wouldn’t surprise us if Gainsbourg was totally on board.
After all, her recent film series Nymphomaniac (also directed by Lars von Trier) featured actors having real sex as well. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays (you called it) a nymphomaniac which means the film is filled with sex scenes. While it was said that body doubles replaced the actors so they could have real sex, we wouldn’t be too surprised if Charlotte Gainsbourg’s performance too good not to be true.
