Sex scenes are a nightmare knowing dad Ray will see them, says Jaime

Actress Jaime Winstone has admitted shooting sex scenes is a "nightmare" as she knows her famous father will watch them.

But the 29-year-old said she was "loving" moving back in with Sexy Beast star Ray Winstone at her parents' home after breaking up with Lily Allen's brother Alfie.

In an interview with a Sunday newspaper, she said: "I've just moved back in with Mum and Dad in Essex and I'm loving it. I find shooting sex scenes, knowing that he will be watching them, a nightmare, but you just have to get on with it.

"I remember being on set with him as a child, when he was shooting Beowulf with Angelina Jolie, and seeing them kissing. I found it so strange, but my mum wasn't bothered at all."

Winstone said her father, known for playing hardman roles in The Departed and Scum, has also banned her from going on safari after he had a childhood nightmare about being eaten by a lion.

"He's so relaxed about everything else and has never been the kind of parent to put lots of restrictions on us. Going on safari is the one thing that we are not allowed to do, so I'll have to take that on the chin."


Winstone - who is starring in new film Love, Rosie (written by Cecelia Ahern) - said she would never use online dating app Tinder and finds people taking selfies "bizarre".

"I think society has forgotten how to communicate properly because of social media," she said.

The Kidulthood star also said that reading Shakespeare plays helped her overcome dyslexia at school.
