Justin Long's difficult sex scenes

August 27th, 2010

Justin Long finds it "uncomfortable" to do sex scenes in front of a room full of grown men.

The actor - who stars alongside his on/off girlfriend Drew Barrymore in their latest romantic comedy movie 'Going The Distance' - admits he felt uneasy stripping off in front of the movie's crew for a scene where his character Garrett had a sexy phone conversation with Drew's alter-ego Erin.

He said: "I would say some of the naked stuff was a little uncomfortable. I think a lot of the really intimate, sexual stuff around a room full of thirty, forty grown men, that was a challenge.

"All the guys in my room, all the crew guys, were like trying to make jokes to keep it light. Or they were making sex jokes."

While Justin struggled with the more intimate scenes, Drew, admits she finds it hard to kiss her co-stars for the first time - but was fortunate when she had to lock lips with Justin.

She said: "I just was lucky because he's a good kisser. So it's like, 'Whew, thank God.' The worst for me is kissing someone who is not a good kisser and you're trying to make it look good and you feel like you're just working on your own. At least it was a real team effort."

The actor - who is believed to have rekindled his romance with Drew - admitted he loves kissing her too.

He said: "She's a great kisser too, I just want to reiterate that.

"Sometimes it can be a surprise when you've never kissed anyone before and you've just met recently and people have different ways of kissing and sometimes it can be very jarringly uncomfortable. There can be very little movement involved and then a quick, sudden movement from the tongue that you don't expect."
