Kissing and Love/Sex Scenes as an actor

9 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Another question for you. What is your opinion on actors (married ones especially) kissing and making love/sex scenes w/their costars? Do you consider it cheating and wrong? Or believe "it's not them doing it, it's their character"?

I don't think it's cheating at all. There are all kinds of people (crew, other cast members, and a whole audience if it's live theater) on set behind the cameras, or off stage, watching what's happening, so the whole ordeal is more embarassing for the actors than anyting else. There's often a lot of rehearsal that's necessary, not due to the actual acting necessary for the scene per se, but the actors often need a lot of time to get the giggles out because they're having to perform this really awkward scene with a co-star that they've often times become close platonic friends with.

Of course there are the odd exceptions where an actor leaves their current significant other for their co-star, but the acting community as a whole shouldn't be held laible for the handful of actors who use their job as a pretext for infidelity.

I think its weird. I know Kurt Cameron has his wife stands in when he has to do scenes like that. I know that's rare for people to do but I think it would make me feel weird if my hubby gets to kiss etc celebrities

I don't think it's cheating but I do feel like I would have a problem with my wife kissing other guys or whatever even if it was just "part of the act." Of course my odds of marrying an actress probably aren't the greatest so I won't have to worry about it! But all jokes aside I remember reading an article where Mark Miller (lead singer of the country group Sawyer Brown, if you'd heard of them) was giving an interview and he was saying that in the group's videos he told the producers he would not do any romantic type scene unless the girl in it with him was his wife. He said he didn't feel comfortable with it and didn't want his kids to have to see him with another woman, even if it was just for the video. I thought that was really neat.

I'm sorry Mark but I would not be very pleased and would not like it one bit <:(... to each his own.

I wouldn't consider it cheating unless he's doing it outside of work.

If that was his career or whatever I would have to accept it and trust him. Besides, he would be doing it to support his family. I can't say I would want to see the scenes of him kissing his co-star though lol.

It's not at all cheating but I would, personally, feel uncomfortable with my husband kissing other girls. Even if it's for work and lots of people will see! But if he was making a good amount of money as an actor, I would accept it. Well I would never date an actor anyways, so that won't be a problem. I can honestly say that I will never, ever date a porn star. lol.
