Anne Hathaway has revealed she brought alcohol to put her Song One co-star, Johnny Flynn, at ease before he filmed his first ever intimate scene.
The Oscar-winning actress, who has more experience of shooting sex scenes, admitted booze, particularly Irish whiskey, usually helps in those situations.
"I just wanted to make sure that he knew he was totally protected, that it was a safe environment. We had a closed set, and I brought the Jameson so that helped, too," she tells E! News.
"In a love scene [whiskey] is kind of a prerequisite," she added.
In Kate Barker-Froyland's drama, Anne - who produces the movie with husband Adam Shulman - plays an archaeologist who falls in love with a musician, played by Johnny, the frontman of the folk-rock band Johnny Flynn And The Sussex Wit.
