Mindy Kaling has revealed one of the biggest secrets in Hollywood, and it is going to make Chris Messina blush.
The Mindy Project star said that, as opposed to being awkward, filming sex scenes with costar Chris Messina is amazeballs and she wants everyone to do it.
“Chris Messina is the most in-touch-with-his-body person of all time, and all he does is make you feel beautiful and confident,” she told Time magazine. “I’ve known him now for quite some time and we’re so comfortable with each other that I wasn’t self-conscious at all. I wish on every actress that they get to shoot a sex scene with Chris Messina, because it’s great fun.”
In fact, in her upcoming book, Why Not Me?, the actress said that contrary to popular belief, filming sex scenes is not awkward at all and is actually really, really awesome.
“Obviously onscreen sex is not actual penetrative sex, but, as any religious high schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well,” she writes, adding that even the dozens of on-set crew members can’t dampen the mood. “To that I say: the more, the merrier! Most of those people are artists whose job it is to make sure your physical imperfections are cloaked in mysterious shadows. By the end of the shooting day, you’ll wish there were more people there.
“People already think acting is the world’s easiest and most frivolous job,” she says. “So we all have this tacit agreement to keep our traps shut about the world’s best job perk.”
BRB, gotta go land a TV role.
