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!
At LA Film Fest last week, Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller paid a visit to the screening of their new movie ‘The Spectacular Now’ based off of the novel by, Tim Tharp.
They did a Q&A session with other members of the cast and crew!
I finished the book last night, It took me a little while to get into it, and I wasn’t totally IN LOVE with it, however I think Miles and Shailene will do a fantastic job of portraying these characters!
