Hugh Grant on Filming Sex Scenes: They're 'Quite a Turn-On'

Hugh Grant poses for photographs in this new feature for W magazine’s October 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 56-year-old Florence Foster Jenkins star had to share:

On sex scenes being a turn on: “Love scenes are extremely difficult. You’re always within a millimeter of sentimentality and ‘yuck.’ But sex scenes are something else! The conventional response to sex scenes is that they’re horrible and not sexy and it’s all so unnatural. But I’ve always found filming sex scenes to be quite a turn-on.”

On if he would do Dancing with the Stars: “Secretly, deep down, I’d love to do that show—it’s superb. But—damn it—I consider myself too classy.”

On having to leave Los Angeles: “I don’t hate L.A., but I’m nervous about becoming one of those people who has a ferocious interest in how films did at the box office that weekend and, you know, would want to meet for egg-white omelets in the morning. After a few weeks of living there, I realized I was going native. I remember being tempted to not actually phone people myself but have my assistant say, “Hi, I’ve got Hugh Grant for you.” At that point, you know you’ve got to get out.”
