Stormzy asks Kate Hudson if actors get 'aroused' when filming sex scenes

Stormzy asked Kate Hudson if actors ever get aroused during sex scenes - come on, guys, we’ll all thought it.
The British rapper and the Hollywood star both make an appearance on this week’s Jonathan Ross Show, where Stormzy opened up about having to film a sex scene for the video for his track 'Hide & Seek'.
The 29-year-old said: "Me and the team said it needs to be a high standard actor. I’m a rubbish actor.
"The idea of me going on set with someone that’s awkward and I’m awkward... We got Saffron [Hocking] in and she’s a true professional. She made me really comfortable and led the whole thing."
Stormzy then turned to Hudson and asked: “When I see sex scenes I’m like, ‘How do you lot do that?’ Of course it’s your job but… as your average punter, it looks extremely difficult. Can there be… arousal… everyone’s thought it!”
However, Hudson was quick to pour cold water on the suggestion, revealing that the mechanics of such a scene ‘take the fun out of it’. Fair enough.
"Interesting question,” she replied, laughing. “I think it’s so mechanical and there’s so many people around. Usually they close the set and you kind of have to talk it out and the boys wear belts. It’s very… tucked. It kind of takes the fun out of it, I guess.
"Sometimes it’s more enjoyable than other times. It just depends on the circumstance and the safety that you feel with that actor and how safe the space feels. It can get awkward."
So we’re back to awkward again, eh?
Stormzy’s real-life love life was back grabbing headlines again earlier this month, amid rumours he’d reunited with his ex Maya Jama.
The pair were in a relationship for four years before parting ways in 2019.
But rumours of a reunion swirled when they were pictured together at the GQ Men of the Year 2022 on 16 November.
However, a rep for Jama told The Evening Standard: "The reports about the romance being rekindled are untrue."
They added that the pair 'remain great friends'.
During a recent interview with Louis Theroux, Stormzy admitted that he doesn’t really bother dating anymore as his fame gets in the way.
He said: "Anytime I've had a date, we've gotta go through a back door at the restaurant.
"Because people are gonna blow the flipping poor girl's life.
"People in the restaurant want to try and film, and I always say that’s not fair on the person I'm with because they don't want to f***ing be in f***ing tabloid magazines."
