Watch: Liam Hemsworth Jokes About "Awkward" Sex Scenes

Sex scenes aren't really all that sexy—just ask Liam Hemsworth!

The Dressmaker star, who plays Kate Winslet's love interest in the upcoming drama, told E! News at the Toronto International Film Festival that it's "always pretty awkward when you have to take off your pants in from tot a crew and other actors and all that stuff."

"During the scene, it's fine," the 25-year-old actor clarified. "You don't feel uncomfortable while the cameras are rolling."

Once the director yells cut, though? "That's when it's weird and uncomfortable," said Liam. (Watch the clip above to find out why things take a turn for the worse once the onscreen deed is done.)


As for Liam's Dressmaker co-star? Well, 39-year-old Kate is the first to admit filming in the buff isn't exactly glamorous.

"I hate it," she told V Magazine back in 2011. "Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say 'Oh f—' let's do it.' And boom."

"If you complain about it or procrastinate it's not going to go away," she added. "It's a profoundly bizarre thing to can literally be tangled in sheets, and you turn to the other actor and say 'What the f— are we doing?'"
