Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan have revealed that they choreographed their own sex scene in new drama Ammonite.
The film sees Winslet playing Mary Anning, who is entrusted with caring for depressed housewife Charlotte Murchison (Ronan). Despite some initial tensions, the two end up falling in love.
As part of the movie, the two actors were involved in one particularly explicit sex scene, which Winslet revealed was choreographed by the stars themselves.
Winslet revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that she choreographed her sex scenes with her costar Saoirse Ronan for their upcoming romantic drama, Ammonite, from the director Francis Lee.
“It’s definitely not like eating a sandwich,” Winslet said.
“I just think Saoirse and I, we just felt really safe,” she added. “Francis was naturally very nervous. And I just said to him, ‘Listen, let us work it out.’ And we did. ‘We’ll start here. We’ll do this with the kissing, boobs, you go down there, then you do this, then you climb up here.'”
“We marked out the beats of the scene so that we were anchored in something that just supported the narrative,” Winslet said. “I felt the proudest I’ve ever felt doing a love scene on ‘Ammonite.’ And I felt by far the least self-conscious.”
