It seems everything has been getting a bit raunchy on our screens lately – with recent BBC The Night Manager sending Twitter into meltdown after a racy scene featuring Tom Hiddleston.

But while the on-screen chemistry may seem electric, it’s not so on the other side of the camera.

A featuring Brooklyn Decker and Patrick Wilson filming a steamy scene in the Stretch was posted to YouTube , proving that for actors, it’s not as hot as it looks.

The clip starts with the actors giggling nervously – but as soon as the director shouts ‘action’ they, very professionally, get straight to work.

Not as as it looks

Once you are acutely aware that other are in the room, it kind of ruins the whole illusion of it.

Then, once the scene is all over, people rush in and start spraying them with what looks like fake sweat while Wilson is still lying on top of his co-star.

about awkward.

So next time you’re watching a movie and the characters start getting amorous, spare a thought for the poor actors who’ve got a room full of people watching them.
