Riley Keough felt really awkward pretending to have s*x with her husband on camera

Nobody would have thought Riley Keough‘s weirdest on-screen intimacy experience would be with her own husband. Keough revealed that Daisy Jones & the Six producers had an excellent choice in mind when it came to casting a “random person” with whom Keough’s character in the show shares a steamy scene. The team approached Ben Smith-Petersen with the offer and he obliged. The host Seth Meyers then proceeded to ask her if the experience was at all enjoyable, and Keough answered,

“It was more awkward,–Seth said it sounds good in the beginning, but less so the more he thought about it. I think that they were thinking it would be less awkward, then we got there and like this is really uncomfortable,”

The star admitted she had a really hard time distinguishing between reel and real,

“Because, I mean, like, for one, I’ve never had pretend s*x with my husband–And I feel like I really kept feeling inclined to be like, ‘In real life, it’s not like this,–And then I was like, I’ll just you know, keep that to myself'”

“It was so weird”

All in all, they had great fun while shooting the scenes, and the fans will now enjoy the cameo even more as they now know the story behind the scenes. People can catch the show on Amazon Prime Video.
