It might be fun to watch steamy movie scenes, but the reality is anything but for the stars acting them out – what with all those flesh-colored modesty garments, prosthetics and chastity pillows being thrown around on set.

20. Michelle Williams – Blue Valentine (2010)
Michelle Williams told W Magazine that her 2010 Blue Valentine relationship-breakdown sex scenes with costar Ryan Gosling had been “toxic.” “I had a long drive from set to home each night,” she explained, “and I would roll down all the windows and turn up the music as loud as I could and hang my head out the window like a dog and scream.”
19. Robert Pattinson – Maps to the Stars (2014)
Robert Pattinson got a little too sweaty while shooting with Julianne Moore on the set of 2014 satirical drama Maps to the Stars. “I was trying to literally catch drops of sweat to stop them hitting her back,” he told Heat. “Afterwards she was like, ‘Are you having a panic attack?’ It was so embarrassing.”
