Blake Lively on Savages
Star talks terrifying and awkward sex scenes!
Director Oliver Stone’s new movie Savages plot focuses on best friends and marijuana growers Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch) who face off against the Mexican drug cartel after they kidnap their shared girlfriend, played by Gossip Girl beauty Blake Lively.

The film’s opening scene features an intense sex scene between Kitsch and Lively, so when Celebuzz talked to the 31-year-old Friday Night Lights actor we asked how he and Blake, 24, prepared for the intimate scene. Did they just go for it? Did they use any safe words?

“Safe words! I love it,” Kitsch laughed. “A lot of sexual improv was going on there.”

Oh really?

“No,” he laughed. “I mean you block it out completely.”

Kitsch tells Celebuzz:

With Oliver we talked it out, God knows, we had two weeks of rehearsals, so we talked until we were about to pass out.  And then on the day– I think I knew Blake three, four days– that was the first week of shooting. It’s just about trusting Blake and Oliver like you do on any set.”

Though the racy scene featuring a naked Kitsch and Lively going at it aggressively on a couch may fulfill some moviegoers’ fantasies. Kitsch echoed the same sentiments as costar Lively, admitting that the intimate scenes aren’t as fun to film as they may be to watch.

“I was just glad it was over with to be honest,” agreed Taylor. “It’s very awkward to do, you know? But it’s such a big part of who [my character] is…and that’s how you meet him. It’s a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended. You know, it’s all part of it and I was glad to get the scene over with was in the first week.”

In the film, Blake is in a relationship with both Chon (Kitsch) and Ben, played by Aaron Johnson, but neither actor thinks that a three-way relationship is really possible.

“I think she’s just f–king greedy, to be honest!” laughed Johnson.
