British actress Billie Piper dislikes shooting sex scenes, despite her racy role as a prostitute in Secret Diary Of A Call Girl. The Doctor Who star played high-class hooker Belle de Jour in the hit U.K. show, and she is set to strip off on screen again in her new series, Penny Dreadful, co-starring Josh Hartnett. However, despite accepting a string of sexy roles, Piper is adamant she would prefer to stay fully clothed on set. She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I'd rather not do sex scenes but I'm always interested in characters with wild spirits so I think sex scenes are inevitable." Piper also reveals she was the envy of all her female pals after signing up to star alongside Pear Harbour hunk Hartnett, adding, "Do I fancy Josh? I did when I was younger... He's totally gorgeous - I had a lot of jealous girlfriends." Penny Dreadful, which also stars Timothy Dalton and Eva Green, is a horror series produced by Sam Mendes and inspired by lurid 19th century British weekly publications.
