Doing a sex scene for a film isn’t as pleasing and enjoyable as you think it is. In fact, it can be a really uncomfortable experience especially when the filmmaker tries to be exploitative or when the actors don’t get along well. There are many sex scenes that famous actors regret doing. The reasons are varied and interesting. Sometimes the scene feels terribly out-of-place and just doesn’t go well with the overall tone of the film. Sometimes it’s the actors who don’t really get along well or lack a certain chemistry that makes for a very uncomfortable experience. So without delving further into it, let’s take a look at the list of sex scenes that famous actors regret doing.
10. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez – Gigli (2003)
Both Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck haven’t openly admitted their regrets for having done this scene but it’s certainly not something they’d be very proud of. ‘Gigli’ is widely considered to be one of the worst movies of all time and one of the biggest box office flops in Hollywood history. The film generated massive hype since Lopez and Affleck were dating at the time but it only made things worse for the film. The sex scene in particular was laughable and illogical. Lopez’ character is a lesbian but she gets turned on by Affleck and has sex with him. It is simply one of the most cringeworthy sex scenes ever filmed in cinema history.

She also insisted that she’d never strip off completely for any role.
