Sex scenes are part and parcel of a career for many actors but that does not mean they are always an enjoyable experience.
For Kirsten Dunst, they are an ordeal. The actor has said she feels uncomfortable filming intimate scenes in her latest film
"I am on the floor and my clothes are being ripped," Dunst told
The 34-year-old said she did not feel comfortable filming scenes such as these. "I don\'t like it, I don\'t like it," she said. "To be honest, I\'m like, \'Let\'s get this over with as fast as possible.\'"
The 34-year-old actor, who rose to household name fame for her portrayal of Mary Jane Watson in the
trilogy, praised the film’s director Sofia Coppola for being sensitive during the shoot.
She explained that while male directors want "to shoot it from every angle” Coppola takes a different approach.
"At least Sofia\'s like, \'We\'re going to get this done quick, we\'re just gonna shoot it here, we\'ll do three takes, be done,’" she recalled.
The famous men and women who aren’t afraid to speak their mind
On climate change: \'Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.\'
\'I will never stop talking about how horrible Donald Trump is. Even after he loses, I will set an alert to my phone to remind me to not stop.’
On the war on drugs and US prison system: “What it has become is not a war on drugs. It has become slavery. Or something crazier. When I see how many people are in jail, I feel like, ‘Wait a minute. Our government is aware of these statistics and thinks it’s OK’ The sentences are inhumane.”
\'I am not shamed or apologetic of what my body might represent to you. It’s the body I was given. I\'m no less worthy of making political points about feminism or fighting for the reclaiming of female sexuality because of it.\'
On racial equality: ‘Now what we\'ve been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people every day. So what\'s going to happen is we are going to have equal rights and justice in our own country or we will restructure their function and ours.’
On claiming a magazine photoshopped her: ‘Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have.’
‘I’m over trying to find the "adorable" way to state my opinion and still be likable! F**k that. I don\'t think I\'ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It\'s just heard.\'
On Black Lives Matter: \'We should not have to jump through hoops to prove black people shouldn’t be shot by police during routine traffic stops. So many people work so hard to find a reason why executing a human being during a traffic stop is ok. IT’S NOT OK.\'
On cultural appropriation: \'What would America be like if we loved black people as much as we loved black culture?\'
On feminism: “I [also] feel like we should stop calling feminists ‘feminists’ and just start calling people who aren’t feminist ‘sexist’ – and then everyone else is just human. You are either a normal person or a sexist. People get a label because they’re bad.\'
said he had made an effort to be as sensitive as he could be while they filmed the sex scenes.
"It\'s harder for women," the 40-year-old said. "And women have in the history of cinema...been more exploited of course, through the means of sexuality, by men than men have. So, it\'s situations like that, any love scenes that I\'ve been a party to over the years, you just [do] whatever your female dance partner needs."

He added: "I really think a woman should be the boss completely in those scenes, whatever she needs to make her comfortable and allow her to have the freedom to do the job she needs to do".
, which hits the UK cinemas on 23 June, is a 19th-century story of seduction and betrayal set at a women\'s boarding school in 1864 in Virginia during the Civil War where women have been sheltered from the outside world. It is a remake of the 1971 thriller.
This is by no means the first time Dunst has worked with Oscar-winning director Coppolla, they also worked together on
