The Bond girl admits the racy drama challenged her, but Garrel suggested they strip off before the shoot to familiarise themselves with each other – and Green was surprised when the tactic worked.
She tells Britain’s The Sun, “The sex scenes were quite full on and frank in The Dreamers. I had a scene in which my own character has to lose her virginity. I had to remember how I felt when I first had sex. I am so reserved in real life, but I surprised myself completely.
“I was asked if I wanted some alcohol before some of the scenes – and admit that I did have some whisky. There was a breaking of the ice before the sex scene.
“The actor Louis Garrel came into my trailer and said: ‘I will show you my d**k if you show me your breasts.’ So I did – and he did. He said to me: ‘They look great.’ So when it came to the sex scenes, it made it a little easier.”
