Neil Patrick Harris On Gone Girl Sex Scenes
Actor not worried about nudity but hopes the camera didn't linger too long...
Neil Patrick Harris has spilled the beans on what it was like to film sex scenes for his latest movie, Gone Girl.
The actor, who had to get naked for a scene with co-star Rosamund Pike, said "you just deal with it" as part of the job, reveals Digital Spy.Speaking on Conan in the US, Neil proved a true gentleman by saying he was more concerned that his female co-star was at ease.
"We shot that particular scene for two days straight," he said. "It wasn't like we were in the musical Hair or something like that, dancing around totally naked. There were moments where that happened and it was disarming.
"There is the camera crew and that's your butt. That had to happen. You just deal with it.
"I was honestly more concerned about Rosamund Pike because we were having sex in the scene," he added. "I wanted to make sure that she, in her own state of disrobedness, felt comfortable and didn't feel weird."
He then joked that he had hoped the cameras would not focus too much on certain parts of his body.
"You don't mind a little, like a hint of the wang," he said. "You (don't) want a long moment of wang, you're conscious of that. I'm fine if you see my butt and stuff like that, but you know, don't get the camera too low."
UK audiences can watch the interview on Conan at 11pm tonight, on truTV (Freeview channel 68).
