Rachel McAdams says her romantic scene with Rachel Weisz had an “energy” she never had with the male actors
No offense to Ryan Gosling, but Rachel McAdams’ favorite romantic scene wasn’t in The Notebook.
Instead, the actress recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she had the best fake sex of her life while filming her new movie, Disobedience with Rachel Weisz. In the new movie based on Naomi Alderman’s novel of the same name, the two are game lovers who have to hide their relationship from the Orthodox Jewish community.
“A lot of times you’re trying to decide if it’s free or not,” said McAdams, 39, while filming the love scene of the movie. “But this scene was an integral part of the plot and moved the story forward. The characters need that version to open up… There was an energy in that scene that I have never felt in any other love scene. [with men] in my career. »
McAdams added that it was a “comradeship” while filming a romantic scene with another actress. “We both felt safe and free… All these things you love about being a woman, [in the scene]so I understand its attractiveness and attractiveness in a sexual context.
Weisz, 48, added that the romantic scene in question was “an extremely important and beautiful scene” and that their director, Sebastián Lelio, “wrote it exactly weeks before we shot.”
Even the most memorable moment of the scene was choreographed by Lelio. “She stated everything she wanted: wetness, the fact that I spit in Rachel’s mouth and [a
focus on] Esti’s orgasm – my character [originally] I had an orgasm too, but I was fine as a producer, although it was a really good orgasm, it wasn’t as good as Esti’s for the story,” Weisz said. “At that moment, Esti’s orgasm is both a sexual liberation and a metaphorical liberation to freedom, as if she’s free to discover who she really is.”
Weisz also drew attention to the differences between a male actor and performing a romantic scene with a female actor. “It’s kind of freestyle, as you normally do in a romantic scene. You get into bed and in my case it happens all the time with guys and you see what happens. This may seem a bit pointless and generalized.
“I think Sebastian would say that this is the center of the movie, the heart of the movie, the deepest part of the movie. It was important to him. We had a whole day to shoot. It was full of meaning, all the ideas she came up with weren’t random, you know they spit in Esti’s mouth, the ideas she wrote as the author, it wasn’t mine, it wasn’t Rachel McAdams’s, we just saw the storyboard and we were like, ‘This looks really interesting and beautiful. ”
Laughing at the spit swap, McAdams said, “I’m thrilled that Sebastian is doing something new. It’s provocative and takes the audience to an intimate setting… The makeup department tested different oil flavors to use as brooches the night before. We chose it for the lychee flavor!
