Oops! Ryan Reynolds tried to act the part of a smooth leading man while filming “The Change-Up,” but instead he found himself forgetting his lines and accidently crossing the line with one of his co-stars.
On Monday’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” Reynolds recalled the what happened during his part-awkward, part-hilarious sex scene with actress Olivia Wilde.
“So, in the scene, she’s sitting there and I take her top off and the bra off, and she has those pasties on, but she’s drawn these adorable little smiley faces on them,” the actor explained. “And I forget every line in the scene — not just from this movie but from every other movie I’ve done.”
And that was just the start of Reynolds’ troubles.
“At some point in the scene she takes my hands and puts them on her breasts,” he said. “So, they’re there. Palms (are) a little sweaty. I don’t know what’s happening. … And I’m trying not to look at her like a 14-year-old boy that just won the lady lottery.”
But he didn’t exactly succeed.
“I take my hands away and I look down at my hands and there’s two frickin’ smiley faces on them and I have no idea what to do. The scene is over now. … And I reflexively, like an idiot, just put my hands right back on her breasts. And I think I’m doing it to cover them up, but I’m realizing now that it’s a very fine line between chivalry and, you know, workplace sexual assault.”
Consider that a lesson learned.
“The Change-Up” opens Friday, Aug. 5.
