Everyone loves sex scenes in films. Well, okay, not everyone. But most people do. Why not? Everyone has sex. Where do you think all seven billion human inhabitants of this testicle-shaped planet came from? Deep dishin’ sausage in a fuzzy taco, amigo. Garnish it with some hand-cranked cream sauce. But the thing is, everyone has parents. So every time you see two celebs firing up the pork pistols and opening up some juicy clams, you’re watching someone’s child get full hog naughty.
You might expect the parents of celebrities to avoid watching movies or shows in which their kids fill a quiver with erotic delights, string up a bow of unbridled depravity, and let the lascivious arrows fly, but that isn’t always the case. On this list, celebrity parents talk about their kids’ sex scenes, or kids share experiences of watching or discussing sex scenes with their parents. In some cases, parents were on set, even giving notes, while the simulated boning went down.
Clarke told Live! With Kelly she instantly regretted her viewing party. “My dad was like, ‘Again?'”
A year after the film had been released, Griffith admitted to watching bits and pieces, but not the bone scenes. She explained to reporters, “Would you want to see your child having sex like that? Just regular sex, I couldn’t do that. But the ‘room of pain’ sex? I definitely couldn’t do that!”
Fair enough. Don Johnson, how do you feel? Your name, after all, is only one letter shy of “Dong Johnson”.
While filming the first season of Girls, Allison Williams lived with her parents, and they watched the show together. She noted to Anderson Cooper that her family is very close-knit, and her parents understand she’s only acting. When Allison’s father, famous news anchor Brian Williams, was asked about his reaction to the steamy scenes, he responded, “Unmitigated joy.” What a naughty daddy.
Here’s hoping that’s sarcasm.
Before The Wolf of Wall Street was released, Robbie went with a strategy most of us have employed with our parents: she straight up lied, telling her small-town Australian fam she wasn’t doing any nudity, and that any rumors they heard to the contrary were false.
Realizing this wasn’t the best long-term plan, Robbie then tried to ease the awkwardness by telling them the scenes were CGI. She told Jimmy Kimmel:
“I changed that to ‘It’s actually a body double and they just CGI’d my head onto someone else.’ And my family doesn’t have anything to do with the entertainment industry… and they were like, ‘They can do that? And I was like, ‘Oh, technology these days. You wouldn’t believe what they do in Hollywood!'”
Robbie eventually came, and came clean, telling her family to read the book on which the film is based to determine whether or not they wanted to see the movie.
Unfortunately, the first day her dad showed up on set he came as a surprise; he happened to pick the day Turner was filming a gang-rape scene. Surprise, Dad!
“It was horribly awkward,” Turner told The Telegraph. “My dad didn’t know this scene was going on, he just thought he’d turn up. We were like, Oh, bad day, Dad.”
When Vanity Fair asked whether Plaza had warned her parents about the sexual content of the film she responded,
“Yeah, they’ve seen the trailer. My mom was shocked, but I think she’ll be okay. My dad was actually really psyched about it…he’s actually really excited and not weirded out [by the sex scenes] at all. Which I think is weird.”
“We saw the film together and I was kind of squirming. Even though she was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those scenes because it was too embarrassing.”
As for his mother’s reaction?
“She was just laughing about it in a good way. She said, ‘That’s my boy!’ I think she was proud of me at the end of it, even if it was weird for her to watch. My mom is my biggest supporter.”
Nothing like your mom laughing at you while you’re trying to ship some wood to Beaver Town.
Mark Kunis Ran Out Of ‘Black Swan’ When Daughter Mila Feasted On Co-Star Natalie Portman’s Juicy Fruit
While filming the rom com Friends With Benefits, Mila told Parade:
“If I’m not mistaken, he walked out during the sex scene in Black Swan. I just don’t think he wants to envision his daughter doing that kind of thing. I’m not sure if he’s going to be able to see Friends with Benefits. He’ll be leaving the theater a lot. I think I might have to ban him.”
That daddy sounds hella naughty, and most likely needs a ribald spanking with his pants around his ankles.
“I talked to my dad about it beforehand and got really emotional talking to him because it was the first time I had really done something like that and I really cared what my parents thought.”
Garcia-Lorido watched the scene with her mother and father for some unfathomable reason. Their reaction? “They thought it was beautifully done,” the actress said. While her father has never done nudity himself, Dominik says he’s understanding, and respects her artistic choice.
As in, “Arch your back more. It will like look sexier if you arch your back.” What are mothers for if not to give unsolicited advice? To make things even more personal, Dobrev’s scenes were with her then real-life-boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder.
As for her love scenes in On The Road, she stated, “I think everyone was really happy that it took a few years for the movie to get made… My mom came to Cannes. She loved it. She was really proud. I haven’t talked to my dad about it yet.”
Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s Mom Had To Supervise His ‘Superbad’ Nudity
“It was because I was 17. Stupid law. I was just sitting there with my bors on, waiting for my mom to drive down to the set. She got there, and I had fake sexual intercourse in front of her.”
Shailene Woodley’s Parents Loved Her Risque Film ‘White Bird In A Blizzard
“[It’s] crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it. I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I’m only 22. My boobs are great. They don’t need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it.”
Rupert Grint’s Parents Nigel and Joanne Watched His ‘Cherrybomb’ Sex Scene In Silence
In the end, Grint’s family kept their feelings to themselves. “When the scene arrived, we all sat there not really saying anything… Afterwards, nobody talked about it — which was kind of a relief.” Sounds like a great time to apparate.
