Aisling Bea had a very awkward sex scene with Paul Rudd while filming Living With Yourself

Very awkward, indeed.

If you haven’t seen Living With Yourself on Netflix then you need to watch it ASAP.

You will binge watch the season in one sitting (I did) because it’s just so good; you won’t be able to turn away. There are so many twists and turns throughout the show that it’s one of the best we’ve seen in a while – and a lot has to be said for its main characters Aisling Bea and Paul Rudd.

The pair are excellent together and work so well as the husband and wife duo on the show.

However, in a recent interview with Sunday World Magazine, the Kildare native said that there were a few mishaps while filming – and one very awkward sex scene.

The actress said: “We had a very funny moment when the nipple covers I was wearing slipped off mid-way through a sex scene. I guess they were just a bit sweaty, and I looked down and they were gone.

“The camera didn’t pick up that we needed to stop filming as we were trying to do the scene in one take to ensure it had good continuity, so he was still in character and trying to protect my dignity from four other guys and a fella holding a boom mike, covering my boobs with his arms and elbows.

“It’s great when something like that happens on set because it shows that the person you are working with has your back.”

You can watch Living With Yourself on Netflix now.
