Jean Smart Got Totally Weirded Out By The On-Set Intimacy Coach


Intimacy coordinators are employed by productions to facilitate understanding and security between actors in attractive scenes. However Jean Smart of the HBO Max collection “Hacks” felt downright uneasy when contacted by her “coach” the night time earlier than a kissing scene. (Watch the interview above.)

“I get an electronic mail from the intimacy coach telling me that she’s gonna be on the set tomorrow simply to guarantee that everyone’s snug,” Smart advised Seth Meyers on “Late Evening” Thursday. “And I stated, ‘Nicely, now I’m uncomfortable. I wasn’t uncomfortable earlier than. Not your fault, I stated, however now I really feel like a jerk that you simply’re gonna be standing there watching us slow-dance after which he kisses me.’”


Smart, the “Designing Girls” and “Watchmen” star whose TV credits stretch again to the late Nineteen Seventies, instructed that intimacy coordinators would possibly take some getting used to.

“Oh God, I assumed it was so bizarre,” she stated.

The former “Frasier” star famous that her husband, actor Richard Gilliland, who died in March, had a humorous response to her appointment with the intimacy coach. He imagined what the legendary Alabama soccer coach Bear Bryant would say if he had been known as on set to watch a love scene.

“That might be an ideal ‘SNL’ sketch,” she stated.
