Sean Bean says intimacy coordinators spoil s-x scenes


Actor Sean Bean has caused a stir in Hollywood after expressing his views on intimacy coordinators in a recent interview with The Times.

The Game of Thrones star stated that he would prefer to do away with them as they “spoil the spontaneity” of sx scenes.

He argued that having someone dictating and observing such scenes inhibits the natural behavior of the actors involved.

This statement has not been well-received by several Hollywood actors, including former co-star Lena Hall, who took to Twitter to respond.

Lena mentioned that the presence of an intimacy coordinator on set can add to a sense of security and safety for female actors.

In his interview, Sean touched upon a scene he previously shot with Lena for the movie Snowpiercer, where their characters engage in intimacy using a mango.

He suggested that some of what they shot was cut and criticized censorship by TV companies and advertisers.

He said, “Often the best work you do, where you’re trying to push the boundaries, and the very nature of it is experimental, gets censored when TV companies or the advertisers say it’s so much.”

When asked about the role of intimacy coordinators following the Me Too movement, Sean stated, “I suppose it depends on the actress. This one [Hall] had a musical cabaret background, so she was up for anything.”

Lena replied to these comments on Twitter, saying, “Just because I am in theatre (not cabaret, but I do perform them every once in a while) does not mean that I am up for anything. If I feel comfortable with my scene partner and with others in the room then I won’t need an intimacy coordinator.”

Lena went on to describe intimacy coordinators as a “welcome addition to the set”, emphasizing that they are not a requirement for every actor or project.

West Side Story star Rachel Zegler also took to Twitter to criticize Sean’s remarks.

She stated that intimacy coordinators create a safe environment for actors and expressed her gratitude for the one they had on the set of West Side Story.

Rachel added, “Spontaneity in intimate scenes can be unsafe. wake up.”

Activist and actor Jameela Jamil also weighed in, saying, “It should only be technical. It’s like a stunt.”

“Our job as actors is to make it not look technical. Nobody wants an impromptu grope.”
