Monday night, The screening for ‘The Spectacular Now’ took place in Los Angeles and Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller were in attendance as well as other cast members, Brie Larson, Dayo Okeniyi, screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and director, James Ponsoldt. Side Note- I love that Shai is barefoot in some of the pictures!
Woodley revealed during an interview on The View that she had no issues with filming the scene, despite it being the first sex scene of her career. She praised co-star Miles Teller, and the realism of the scene.
She explained: “It’s my favorite scene in the whole movie because it is so real. The audience does feel uncomfortable watching it, because it almost feels like you’re invading somebody’s privacy.
“There’s not fancy music playing and there’s not any exaggeration of what it’s like to be intimate with somebody for possibly the first time. It’s also just a minute-long shot of us making love.”
I am looking forward to seeing this movie. I appreciate that they tried to make something “real” I have read Shailene say this movie is “the most authentic coming-of-age movie that we’ve had in maybe 20 years” and THAT is exciting!
