Olivia Colman Used an Innocent Sponge to Calm Emma Stone's Sex Scene Nerves

Just because she’s an A-list actress doesn’t mean Emma Stone is comfortable doing sex scenes with Olivia Colman.

On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Colman discussed her The Favourite co-star, 30, and revealed that she had to improvise during an, er, intimate scene in the movie.

You see, Stone was nervous about accidentally touching the 44-year-old actress inappropriately. So, Colman did what anyone would do and grabbed a nearby sponge to create a barrier.  

“I asked the makeup department if they had a sponge, and so I put a sponge there,” she explained. “A big, wet sponge.”

Creativity at its finest.
