Hugh Grant has made a creepy confession about filming sex scenes, according to News Australia. The 56-year-old actor has admitted that while filming sex scenes is “extremely difficult,” they are “quite a turn on.”

The revelations come as a surprise, as the vast majority of actors claim to hate filming love-making scenes. But Hugh Grant, who admits that sex scenes are “horrible, not sexy, and unnatural,” nonetheless says he gets aroused when imitating passion onscreen.
“The conventional response to sex scenes is that they’re horrible and not sexy and it’s all so unnatural. But I’ve always found filming sex scenes to be quite a turn-on.”
Hugh Grant, who turned 56-years-old last month, confessed that he likes the experience of “being in a sexual position when you’re not supposed to be in one.” The Four Weddings and a Funeral star apparently doesn’t find filming sex scenes awkward.

Even the Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson has previously admitted that filming love making scenes is “not a sensual or pleasurable environment.”
“It’s really hot — not in a steamy, sexual way. It’s just sweaty and it’s not very comfortable.”
But Hugh Grant, who has never filmed hard-core sex scenes (at least not in feature films, nobody knows what the actor is shooting in his leisure time), for some reason, finds filming sex scenes arousing.
In other news, just last month, Hugh Grant made headlines when he revealed in his interview with Howard Stern that he had been offered “millions” to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men after the 51-year-old actor quit the CBS sitcom.
But Hugh Grant refused to jump at the opportunity because they didn’t have a script or a new character for him.
“They just said, ‘Trust us. We’ll create one’. I said, ‘Well, it’s very difficult for me to consider this without a script.’ And they said, ‘Trust us! Trust us!”
And while Hugh Grant admits that the creators of Two and a Half Men are “brilliantly talented” and that he has no doubt that they would create a great character for him, he told them that he was “too scared” to sign up without reading the script first.

But that wasn’t the only revelation Hugh Grant has shared with the media over the past two months. In his recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 56-year-old actor opened up about his battle with stage fright that made him quit acting for more than six years.
And while Hugh Grant admitted he had no idea where that stage fright and anxiety “suddenly came from,” panic attacks would hit him in the middle of a film or play and would last for hours, and the actor admits that he was a “devastating” experience.
But Hugh Grant has apparently found the best way to battle his stage fright through regular physical exercise and herbal calmers that help him get rid of anxiety and panic attacks, though he admits that this daily battle is a “pain in the a**.”
As it turns out, Hugh Grant had no idea there can be people in this world who hate him, according to Vox. During the new installment of Jimmy Kimmel’s Celebrities Read Mean Tweets segment, the actor read out a rather insulting tweet about his “charm.”
“Watching Hugh Grant and his stutteringly pathetic ‘charm’ is about as appealing to me as closing my scrotum in a DVD case.”

But Hugh Grant’s reaction wasn’t something Kimmel’s fans would expect, as the actor was shocked that Twitter users can be so cruel. The actor even asked Kimmel if those mean tweets are real or the host makes them up to be “especially nasty.”
