Okay, so it was only an on-screen sex scene, but surely working with someone who has writhed around half naked with your ex must be major awkward?
Kristen Stewart doesn't think so. The famously feisty actress took it in her stride when she had to work with Rob's partner in limo sex, Juliette Binoche. In fact, she seemed to relish the experience.
[Clouds of Sils Maria](movie:902082) director, Olivier Assayas spoke out at Cannes about the relationship between the two actresses and it seems they established a seamless working relationship. He explained that;
Kristen was very much a fan of Juliette. She loves her work and she felt that she had something to learn from her, and I think Juliette loved that position of being able to pass on something to another actress. Kristen watched her a lot and learned a lot from her and used it. It was absolutely not competitive, it was something symbiotic
So, there you go.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it really annoying that people assume two actresses will be in a mad power struggle and cat fighting because of the differences in their age and status? You definitely don't read tripe like this when younger actor takes the stage alongside a more established male lead. Just sayin'!
Are you surprised that Kristen Stewart enjoyed working with Juliette Binoche?
Would you be comfortable to star with your ex's sex scene partner?
