Chloe Sevigny by Marc Hom, 2008
“I did have a sex scene with Christian Bale, which I did to the best of my ability. It was great. We were at King’s Cross, we’re shooting this film Velvet Goldmine, and he plays a journalist and I was playing a kind of Iggy Pop type rock star and we have a shag on top of a rooftop in King’s Cross. But they wanted to shoot it from another rooftop, just kind of a wide shot. We did some close-up stuff but this was a wide shot.
And Todd Haynes, the director, and he – I don’t know – we had to kind of [shouts] ”Action!”, so we started to quite slowly… [Ewan stands up and thrusts his hips] with Batman like that. And the film crew are on the other side, and it went on and on.
And then I just thought I’d have come by now, so I went round to the other side of his ear, non-camera side and I went “I think I would have come by now”. And then I said “I’m going to have a look”. And I looked over and they were packing up.”
- Ewan McGregor
I’ve heard this story before, but not quite as graphic, or with Ewan calling Christian Batman while thrusting his hips.
