Zac Efron admitted that he got the jitters shooting a sex scene with Heather Graham for their movie At Any Price.
The 25-year-old High School Musical star and director Ramin Bahrani told the actress that they hadn’t filmed a sex scene before. Since Graham has been involved in more than a few erotic scenes during her career, this suddenly made her an expert on the subject.
Zac Efron discussed his jitters during a recent screening of the movie. He said his admiration of the Boogie Nights co-star made him nervous on-set.
“I’ve been a fan of Heather’s and had a crush on her since I can remember,” the actor explained. “She’s always been the epitome of that perfect girl. I wanted to get it right.”
Sony Pictures Classics describes the film as follows:
“Set in the competitive world of modern agriculture, ‘At Any Price’ centers on ambitious Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid), who wants his rebellious son Dean (Zac Efron) to help expand his family’s farming empire. However, Dean has his sights set on becoming a professional race car driver. When a high-stakes investigation into their business unfolds, father and son are pushed into an unexpected situation that threatens the family’s entire livelihood.”
When he isn’t getting the jitters while filming sex scenes, Zac Efron is injuring himself while shooting fights scenes. The actor recently broke his hand during a sequence with Dave Franco for the upcoming comedy Townies.
The actor showed off his wounded hand during a recent visit to Live with Kelly and Michael. Efron said he had a titanium plate inserted into his hand in order to repair the damage done.
“I broke it a couple [of] days ago on set … during filming, it was during a stage fight with Dave Franco. I had to go back to work so I couldn’t really wear a cast, so [medics] put like a titanium plate in it and a bunch of screws,” he explained during his appearance on the chat show.
