Morena Baccarin says filming sex scenes with Ryan Reynolds was unpleasant

‘That stuff is always uncomfortable’

Morena Baccarin has revealed that she wasn’t a fan of kissing Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool or filming a sex scene with him that took two days to shoot.

The pair had an intimate scene together in the first Deadpool film, released in 2016.

But while it certainly looked to viewers like the pair were having a pretty good time, Baccarin has opened up about how the reality was a million miles away from what fans saw in the film.

In the first instalment of the Marvel film franchise, she played Vanessa, the girlfriend of Reynolds’ character, Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool.

The film is more famous for its action scenes, fights, and almost comedic violence, but for a brief moment in the first film there’s a sex scene montage involving Reynolds and Baccarin.

The American actress has revealed that she really didn’t enjoy shooting the explicit scenes, which see the on-screen couple celebrate occasions such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, International Women’s Day and a number of other national holidays with some bedroom activities.

But back in 2017, Baccarin spoked to TV host Conan O’Brien about her experience filming the movie, revealing that she loved it all – apart from the days shooting sex scenes.

She said: “It was really fun… minus the two days of sex scenes, it was wonderful, the whole experience.”

“It took two days to shoot the sex scene, because I think it was us making sweet love for an entire calendar year. So it was all the holidays, you know. So we dressed differently for everyone.”

She revealed that a lot of what they shot over the two days was “left on the cutting room floor,” adding: “And I feel good about that – the part that was left out.

“I literally mean that was enough sex. Like nobody needs to see more than what was in the movie!”

It wasn’t just the sex scenes that were a struggle, with Baccarin revealing that it was pretty unpleasant to kiss Reynolds with his Deadpool superhero mask on.

She told People magazine in 2018: “I keep saying that kissing him in that mask is like kissing a giant latex condom.

“It basically just smells like rubber the entire time.”

However, she had nothing but praise for her co-star for making her feel comfortable throughout all the awkward scenes due to his professionalism.

“[T]here’s a lot of laughing. And that stuff is always uncomfortable,” she told Collider in 2015, “But, we made the best of it.”

She continued: “By the end of the day you’re like ‘Okay, where do you want me, how do you-?’ You’re like spreading your legs and you’re like whatever, it’s just, you get so used to each other.”
