In a few days, The Beguiled will hit theaters. If you’re a fan of Sofia Coppola movies, you might have already got your tickets. The Civil War-era film includes a sex scene between Kirsten Dunst and Colin Farrell, which we have to admit is a little puzzling. Especially because Farrell is the only male lead in the film.
When asked about the moment in question, Dunst made sure to note that, yes, it’s definitely an awkward scene.
“We wanted to make it something unique and a little shocking,” Dunst told E! New. “And we thought, OK, let’s not kiss at all in this scene, even though it’s a love scene. We wanted to be aggressive and desperate, and that was clearly [my character] Edwina’s first time. So we wanted it to be weird.”
Dunst also said the choice to have the two characters refrain from kissing was a decision made by both Coppola and herself – just to add that extra touch.
Given that none of these stars are new to the entertainment business, we’re sure the scene is exactly as she imagined it to be – weird.
In fact, according to E! News, the entire movie has a wonderful element of weirdness. But that’s nothing new for Coppola, who has previously directed Dunst in films like the weird-but-wonderful The Virgin Suicides.
We can’t wait to see the movie (and the scene in question) for ourselves. The film is currently in select theaters but will open on June 30.
