Our lesbian love scenes were hell, say actresses after they were 'forced to perform humiliating acts of sex and violence by demanding director'

Two young actresses who star in one of the most successful films released this year have claimed they were forced to engage in humiliating acts of sex and violence by its director.

Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux both say they will never work with Abdellatif Kechiche again following their experience filming Blue is the Warmest Colour.

i guess now directors will be forced to hire actresses who are really lesbians.

the new problem will be getting people to come and watch the movies.

course we could go back to having script writers actually make a storyline that doesn’t require nudity or smut at all.

The actresses also claimed that Kechiche ordered them to spend 10 days - mostly naked - filming a sex scene which last just ten minutes in the film.

Well, call me cynical, but I think I see the problem here.

A young woman who had been in several community theater shows with our son went on to pursue acting as a career. Next I heard she was offered a spot in the traveling show of Les Miserables, a wonderful gig but she turned it down because she wouldn’t do the prostitute scene because she’s a devote Christian. Huge choice for her. I met a young woman tonight (9th grader) who insisted that her mother take her to RCIC (rites of Christian Initiation for Children). My granddaughter is also starting (7th grade) because she wants to be a Catholic. There’s some hope for the next generation.

To make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs.

To make an art film, you have to break a few girls. Roman Polanski would agree... /s

These two were the belles of the ball at Cannes this year, so their complaints are coming in a little late.

Given the state of Hollywood these days, I can’t help but be a little skeptical and wonder if these “complaints” aren’t just a gimmick to get more people to see a movie that, until now, I hadn’t even heard of.

Indeed. No doubt a lot of scenes needing to be re-shot, overexposed film, improper lighting, mis-spoken lines. I can imagine this older, umm, director, needing to get the scenes just right.

They could have hired me to be a body double for either of them.

Yes it would be a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

Reminds me of a 1976 hit by an aptly-named band:

I recall an interview with Florence Henderson regarding “The Brady Bunch”. She said the first time they had a kiss, she went to the director and said, “this guy ain’t straight”.

Later Sherwood Schwartz confirmed that was what happened. I thought it was interesting that she could tell just from a screen kiss.

Ten minutes is an extremely long time for a love (sex) scene. Does the movie offer anything else?

Next to the combined books of the Bible, i think Les Miserables is the greatest story ever told... it is a story of grace, repentence and redemption... so beautiful...

“Homosexuality is NOT normal and I refuse to be entertained by depictions of it.”

Lesbian scenes are just an excuse to get two hot chicks naked at the same time without having to look at a hairy naked guy, too.

I think the best novel I ever read was “Great Expectations”. We had to read it in 10th grade English Lit.

Not a thing in it to keep one from letting their child read it. It certainly is not necessary to fill the story with sex and violence or at least both described in detail rather than left to the imagination.

The description of sex and Violence are not bad in of them self. The Bible has quite a bit of both.

It is interesting that although it is technically the same thing and I admit it, seeing two girls together doesn’t produce the gag reflex which one gets from seeing two homos.

No one try to make a joke about “gag reflex” either.
