There are many actors who have shot a sex scene sometime in their career. Some of these stars have also opened up about the whole experience being awkward because they had to pretend to have sex in front of a cameraman, the director, and their on-screen partner.
These nude scenes can also be awkward because they involve props that the audience doesn’t see, or require crazy preparation beforehand, like the actors getting body piercings. In fact, a lot of props like pantyliners and prosthetics are used to make a scene look realistic. So what did these actors have to do to film their on-screen trysts? Here are 10 crazy things celebrities have done in their nude scenes.
1. Mark Wahlberg used a prosthetic penis in Boogie Nights, and kept it
In this movie, Mark Wahlberg plays a young man who enters the porn industry. The role involved multiple sex scenes, but one of the most memorable was one that ended with a shot of Wahlberg’s penis. However, it wasn’t really the actor’s penis, but a prosthetic that he ended up keeping.
The reason for this is because the character is supposed to have a 13-inch penis. The prosthetic is made of plaster and to complete it, Wahlberg wore a merkin. So where is the prosthetic penis now?
“I used to keep it in my desk drawer,” Wahlberg revealed on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “And I’d take it out and slap my friends in the face with it. I don’t keep many things from my movies, but that just seemed to have personal significance.”
In other Boogie Nights scenes, Wahlberg created a bulge in his pants using women’s stockings filled with bird seed, according to the Vulture.
