Eva Mendes Tries To Avoid Doing Sex Scenes

Actress Eva Mendes fights to avoid sex scenes in her films, because she's convinced they rarely add to the story.

The actress, who touched herself on screen a sofa for a scene opposite Joaquin Phoenix in We Own The Night, insists she's not a fan of getting intimate on the big screen.

Mendes, who grew up dreaming of becoming a nun, tells WENN, "Love scenes are always awkward. They're awful. I've managed to really skip through them. When I read that my character has a love scene I carefully address it with the director: 'Can we please cut this out? It's gratuitous and there's no need for it,' and thankfully that has happened.

"I try to avoid them whenever I can. I have done a couple of things that have been appropriate for the films I've been in but I've never done a simulated sex scene because I feel like they're rarely appropriate."

Mendes has, however, stripped down for various movie roles and appears topless in one post-sex scene for her upcoming film The Place Beyond The Pines - with co-star and real-life boyfriend Ryan Gosling cupping her breast to preserve her modesty.
