Sex scenes get even the most professional actors flustered!
Laverne Cox admitted as much during an interview with People, where she explained that love scenes are never easy.

Of her scenes in new CBS series Doubt, the actress said:
"I was super nervous. I think it's always weird when you're, like, having to make out and make ‘love' or get intimate with someone that you're not intimate with. You want to make sure everyone's comfortable."
The 32-year-old was also worried how costar and love interest Ben Lawson would react to kissing a transgender woman, saying:
"I haven't even talked about this — maybe he has kissed a trans woman in real life before, but I was assuming he had never. I was like: ‘Oh my God, is he freaking out?' But he's such a professional. He always made me feel completely comfortable and I hope I made him feel comfortable and respected, as well. But it's a scary thing!"
Laverne revealed that the script called for a lot of very hot action, and she hopes she and Ben lived up to it:
"In the script it says, before our first steamy moment, that it's ‘the hottest hotness that has ever existed.' … So you have to keep watching for the hottest hotness that has ever existed. I hope that we were able to live up to that!"
We're sure they did!
Watch Doubt's premiere on CBS on Wednesday at 10 p.m.!
