Now about that controversial auto-erotic sex scene of yours in We Own The Night, that opening eye-opener where you masturbate for a clearly pleased Joaquin, how difficult was that to fake? And thank you for reminding me that it was a masturbation scene!
Most people refer to it as a love scene. I was so scared that morning, and I tried to stall. But I had to do it. And James was so respectful, and helpful. So that morning, I spent a couple of hours talking to Joaquin and James. I was talking in circles, trying to get out of it saying stuff like, would it really be necessary for me to this? And like any time anyone in this business says trust me, you kind of go ugh, and tense up. It was so obvious what I was doing.
But they were so patient with me. Eventually I just talked myself into oblivion! And we shot it. James was so cool about it, because he planned this scene as the last to be shot.
And that made sense, because by then Joaquin and I had three months of history together. So that really helped. The scene is really erotic, and very embarrassing. But I hope it also comes from a place of love. Is that one of your more embarrassing scenes ever?
Well, I would say Children of the Corn was more embarrassing. It was just awful, awful, awful. You know, to be like, look at how terrible that is! At times it would get very technical, with James telling you to move in a certain direction to get in the shot. So that did help to put some distance between me and the scene. But it seems that sexuality is more taboo than all that violence in movies. Or being shot and getting their head blown off.
So do you favor the bad boy in a man, or what? I like edge with my guys. And I like good boys that are…sometimes bad! So I know exactly what I like. But I really do, at the end of the day, like a sweet, good strong man.
With a little edge there! This cop thriller We Own The Night is also very much about the club scene. Has that ever been your thing? And there was an innocence to the drug intake, and to the partying. And we know what could happen if we have unprotected sex. What turns you on about New York City, if anything? And the rooms are spectacular.
Now for Ghost Rider, you had some added boobage. Did that feel sexier, or not? It actually did, believe it or not. Because my bajungas were big. But yeah, it was really nice.
It was like wow, this is cool. The Cuban side of me came out. You stay in there, you Cuban lady! Once I was a taco for Halloween. I wore a taco suit that had lettuce coming out. Talk about not having qualms about anything!
