Duhamel and Hough play the central characters in the big screen adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ best-selling novel, but the actor insisted on talking to his co-star’s partner before the cameras rolled on their most intimate scene.
The Transformers stars tells Access Hollywood, “I just thought it would be cool if he and I had a man to man (talk) about the scene before we started shooting it. I was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, I totally respect you and your relationship. Nothing weird is going to happen, just so you know’.
“And (Seacrest was) like, ‘Yeah, I wasn’t even thinking about it’. I walked away thinking, ‘Why would I feel compelled to do that? You only made him think about it when you didn’t even need to’.”
