Maggie Gyllenhaal has done enough sex scenes in her career to know when to say no, but for actresses who are just starting out, she says an intimacy expert might be the best solution.
“I have done so many sex scenes in my life; I have learned how to protect myself. I’m good with it. I don’t actually want someone talking to me,” Gyllenhaal says during her Variety Actors on Actors interview with Regina King. “But I can also see that the woman who came in, who’s 22, who got the job, who’s a great actress, who has to take her clothes off, who doesn’t know how to say no, who’s learning how to say no. … I know that this person needs that help. I could have used the help when I was younger.”
