Britt Robertson was amused by how “involved” her The Longest Ride director got during a bull-riding scene.
The 24-year-old actress stars in the upcoming romantic flick as Sophia, a college student who falls in love with a former bull-riding champion called Luke (Scott Eastwood). But their relationship is torn apart when Sophia is offered her dream job in New York and Luke is keen to stay put and rejoin the rodeo circuit.
There are plenty of raunchy scenes throughout, such as one that makes a connection between riding and sex.
“George [Tillman, Jr., director] was pretty adamant about wanting to make the scene where Luke’s teaching me about bull-riding like he was teaching me how to have sex. There were no ifs, ands, or buts about it,” Britt told cosmopolitan.com. “He was in that scene with the monitor in his hand, and he was a driving force. ‘Ride that barrel. Ride that barrel!’ He’s a very involved director. There were no secrets about what we were trying to do with that scene.”
Scott joined his co-star for the interview and they both shared tips taken from the bull-riding scenes which may help in the bedroom department. The handsome actor advised going with the flow and setting up a good rhythm, while Britt explained how having more sex scenes has helped boost her confidence in that area.
Scott has often spoken about his approach to love, describing himself as an old-fashioned romantic, so was happy to share his idea of the perfect first date to impress a lady.
“I’d just take her down to the beach, pull a couple of beach chairs out the back of my truck, and sit on the beach, hang out, put some music on. And then if she’s cool, and we got along, I’d say, ‘Let’s go get a sunset drink somewhere.’ And then maybe go dancing after that. To be continued…” he grinned.
