Taylor Kitsch says he was relieved to get his sex scenes out of the way in his new film Savages.

The movie features Blake Lively's character in a love triangle with Chon (Taylor) and Ben (Aaron Johnson).

Collider reported Taylor as saying: "We had two weeks rehearsal, so we talked about it (with director Oliver Stone) until we were about to pass out.

"I think I had known Blake for three or four days, before we shot (those scenes).

"That was the first week of shooting. It was just about trusting Blake and Oliver, like you do on any set.

"I was just glad it was over with, to be honest," the Canadian star added. "It's very awkward to do. It's such a big part of Chon and who he is... It's all part of it, but I was glad it was in the first week."

The John Carter and Battleship star also suggested that he will steer clear of blockbuster films "for a while".

"I really loved being on this set with these actors, and being a part of it.

"Not that I didn't with the others, but just to make it as raw as this film is and to get back to what it is... is really refreshing, and I'll stay on that track.

"There will be no more green screen for awhile," he said.
