Emma Thompson Completely Shuts Down Sean Bean’s Controversial Comments About Sex Scene Intimacy Coordinators – BuzzFeed

Written by admin

Emma Thompson is definitely not on the same page as Sean Bean when it comes to sex scene intimacy coordinators.

If you missed it, earlier this week Sean shared his thoughts about using intimacy coordinators—and they were not well received.

The Game of Thrones actor stated that he believes that coordinators “destroy the spontaneity” of shooting a sex scene and “hinder” his performance.

And while Sean is obviously not a fan of intimacy coordinators, Emma is speaking out to share her belief that they’re “fantastically important.”

“You can find people going, ‘It made me feel comfortable, it made me feel safe, it made me feel like I could do this job,'” Emma said on the Australian radio station, Nova.

Then she immediately called out Sean’s “spontaneity” comments, shutting down the idea that sex scenes should be done naturally.

“And no, you can’t just let it flow. There’s a camera there and a crew. You’re not on your own in a hotel room, you’re surrounded by a bunch of guys, mostly,” Emma said.

She added that overall it’s just “not a comfortable situation.”

However, Emma is not the only actor to speak – both of them Rachel Zegler and Jameela Jamil shared her thoughts on the need for intimacy coordinators.

“intimacy coordinators create an environment of safety for actors… spontaneity in intimate scenes can be unsafe. wake up,” Rachel wrote on Twitter.

intimacy coordinators create an environment of safety for actors. i was extremely thankful for the one we had at WSS – they showed grace to a newcomer like myself + educated those around me who have years of experience. spontaneity in intimate scenes can be unsafe. wake up.

Jameela added: “It should only be technical. It’s like a stunt. Our job as actors is not to make it look technical. Nobody wants an impromptu grope…”

@Variety It should only be technical. It’s like a stunt. Our job as actors is not to look technical. No one wants an impromptu grope…

Despite many actors speaking out, Sean has yet to respond or clarify his comments.
