This may shock many of you, but we've been hearing rumors for years that giving girls a few drinks can make them feel more romantically adventurous. And, according to People, this very rumor was put into action when 21 star Kate Bosworth shot her love scenes with co-star Jim Sturgess. As she recently admitted at a New York screening, "We were both so drunk...Jim and I became such good friends, we decided to have a couple of drinks, loosen up and go for it." Which got us thinking: seeing as how Kate's been required to do the whole sex scene thing with quite a few actors over they years, what other combination of sedatives, drugs and drinks must she have had to pop and sip in order to get down and dirty with the likes of James Van Der Beek and (gulp) Kevin Spacey?
First, we present the leading men we suspect Kate had no problems getting down and dirty with, from Brandon Routh in Superman Returns to surfer boy Matt Davis in Blue Crush (at right). And though Kate claims some booze was consumed before making out with Jim in 21, we're pretty sure she didn't turn to her stash carefully hidden in the wardrobe department just so she could get through the shoot, judging by this image of him from the movie, at center.
But what of these three? In the college sex 'n drugs flick Rules of Attraction, Kate had to go at it with spikey-haired, long-faced James Van Der Beek, who played a drug-addled violent kid causing trouble. We suspect pills in the benzo category were required; maybe a little Valium or Ativan to numb herself out take after take. And then there was that gruesome bathroom sex scene with Val Kilmer in Wonderland. Kilmer can certainly be a looker when he cleans up, but playing (yup, another) druggie with greasy hair and a ten-o-clock shadow, we're guessing Kate hit the gin hard before getting banged around for this scene. And finally we come to the lovely Kevin Spacey, her other 21 co-star. Personally we wouldn't mind making out with Kev sober, but that's only if we figure out a way to unplug our gaydar. We figure Kate just smoked a joint or two and imagined a parallel universe in which all those gay rumors didn't exist.
Cheers to Kate for proving that sex scenes, no matter who you do 'em with, can be one big high after another.
