Taylor Kitsch has revealed he was "glad" when his sex scenes with Blake Lively were over during filming of crime thriller Savages.
The Battleship star said he had only known the actress for three or four days before they shot the scenes, which were "awkward".
Taylor, who plays tough guy Chon in the movie, said: "It's very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest. It's such a big part of my character and who he is, and that's how you meet him. So it's a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended!
"A lot of sexual improv was going on there. God knows we had two weeks of rehearsal, so we talked until we were about to pass out, and then we shot the sex scenes. On the day I think I knew Blake three days... four days maybe."
But Taylor said he enjoyed working with Gossip Girl star Blake, who plays O in the movie.
The Canadian actor said: "Blake is great and I wish I had more scenes with her. Most of the film is about the hunt to get her back.
"Blake came prepared and had a lot to take on, being one of the few women in the film. I tip my hat to her."
Savages, directed by Oliver Stone, is out now on DVD and Blu Ray. The film also stars John Travolta, Aaron Johnson and Salma Hayek.
