"Not an exhibitionist like that"

Acting is not always filled with perks, it seems. Gwyneth Paltrow has recently admitted just how humiliating filming sex scenes is for her.

"Not an exhibitionist like that"

Sex scenes sort of come with the job when you're an actress, but Gwyneth Paltrow has recently revealed how humiliated she feels when doing them.

The Iron Man actress may have previously boasted to Us Weekly that she has a seriously hot body and the "butt of a 22-year-old stripper," but stripping down for her film Thanks for Sharing — a film that deals with sex addiction — earlier this year was not fun.

Paltrow appears in the film alongside Mark Ruffalo and in one sultry bedroom scene she is wearing only skimpy black lingerie, which she admitted was "very embarrassing."

The 41-year-old actress discussed the scene in an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview from the upcoming DVD release of the movie.

Paltrow told E! News, "Doing the lingerie striptease, I'm not sure exactly how you would classify that, but it was very embarrassing."

"I was not comfortable at all, but, you know, it was a good challenge for me to put myself in a situation that I would never be in in my own life."

"I'm not an exhibitionist like that. And it was a challenge. I'm this other woman and I'm really going to go for it. And it was fine."

Although, the Oscar-winning star did have some good things to say about the film and was quick to praise her co-star for his professional behavior.

Paltrow said, "Mark [Ruffalo] is so lovely. He made it very easy."

Guess we won't be seeing Paltrow in any raunchy movies any time soon then?
