Emmys 2011: Guy Pearce on steamy sex scenes with Kate Winslet

Sex. There, we got your attention. At least that’s how Guy Pearce got our attention backstage after his win for supporting actor in a miniseries. He talked quite a bit about it, actually.

For example: Why did he thank costar Kate Winslet and not Evan Rachel Wood? Easy. He “definitely had some steamy emotional scenes” with Wood. But “Kate Winslet, I have sex with four times in the show, and that’s what was in the forefront of my mind,” he said.

To be fair, Pearce did genuinely admit: “There were probably lots of people I forgot to mention.”

But then it was back to the sex scenes with Winslet. “Because it was Kate, we did have a good time. They’re nerve-racking to do, but she made it easy.”

Of course this raises the question: What does Winslet think of sex scenes with Pearce? And how does he stack up as a kisser compared to, say, Leonardo DiCaprio?

“I keep asking her [that],” said Pearce. “But she keeps refusing to tell me, so there’s obviously some bad news there. She might tell me tonight if I get her drunk enough.”
