Will Smith Claims Filming Sex Scenes Is 'The Worst Part Of Acting'

Will Smith has claimed that filming sex scenes is 'the worst part of acting'.

The 53-year-old star appeared on The Graham Norton Show this week to promote his latest film, the Williams sister-focused biopic King Richard, and spoke to the host and fellow guest Richard Osman about the highs and lows of acting and the difficulties involved in getting intimate on-screen.

During their vibrant and animated conversation, the Fresh Prince star also revealed that he once pulled a cringe-worthy prank on his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

And how did he do this? Well, by playing one of her movies in front of his religious grandmother, timing things so that her sex scene was playing when the actress, who he wed in 1997, was first introduced to her future in-law.

The topic came up during part of a conversation with the Pointless star and bestselling author Osman, who revealed his reluctance to write sex scenes into his novels as he did not like reading them.

He said: "I'm not interested in writing sex scenes. I always find it very peculiar. Love and romance are absolutely fine, but I really don't want to read about it, so I don't write about it.

"Everyone you have ever met will think you are writing about yourself!"

Smith agreed with Osman and added his own perspective on the matter, saying that 'sex scenes are the worst part of acting'.

"When you watch it in a movie there is music and wine but on set, there is some big dude holding the microphone, chewing and watching you."


The Hollywood star then spoke about his prank on his wife, saying: "She was going to meet my family for the first time. I was raised in a very religious household and my grandmother Gigi is all the way down with Jesus.

"Because she didn't know who Jada was, I put on a movie of hers and worked out that by the time Jada arrived my grandmother would be watching the love scene.

"She walked in, my grandmother was in the middle of the scene and she looked up and said to Jada, 'When I was growing up people didn't have to take their clothes off to make a movie.'

"Jada took me aside and said, 'Why would you do that?'... 'I said, 'I promise you it's funny, maybe not now, but one day this is going to provide us with years of joy.'

"We have been together for 27 years and she literally hasn't chuckled once!"

It seems as if sex has been on Smith's mind a lot recently as revealed that at one point as a young man, he had sex with so many women that orgasms made him 'gag' and 'vomit'.

And it's not just Will who's been dishing the dirt either- Jada recently made headlines by opening up about her own sex life, claiming that she once had a threesome, but it 'wasn't her thing'.

Seems as if this couple have a lot of entertaining stories to share!
