Blake Lively insists her sex scene in The Town isn't hot.
The 23-year-old Gossip Girl actress plays a young mum in Ben Affleck's heist flick.
"Everybody is like, 'There's a steamy scene...' and I'm like, 'Really? You have a very dark life that I don't want to ask you about!'" Blake joked.
The actress said her scenes with Ben's character are far from sexy.
"It's awkward, it's unromantic and it's also very tragic in a lot of ways because these are two people that hate each other and they're stuck in this rut," Blake explained.
"It was my first day of shooting and if that's not an ice breaker I don't know what is?!" she laughed.
Blake said she was pleased that the scene wasn't exploitative and showed the darkness in the couple's characters.
"It wasn't there to be a gratuitous sex scene for the trailer or to get guys to watch this movie, it's actually a turn off for the audience, everybody around and for us," she said.
:: The Town opens in cinemas on September 24.
