How many times have you watched a steamy sex scene on TV and thought, “How awkward was that to make?”
Well, Betty Gilpin who plays Dr. Carrie Roman, the very single, sexually-charged first-year resident on Nurse Jackie, says those sex scenes are so awkward. “My spirit leaves my body and watches from the ceiling and makes fun of me.”
Her character is lucky enough to sleep with Dr. Cooper, played by the oh-so-adorable Peter Facinelli. Betty says, “He couldn’t have been sweeter and more respectful.”
That being said, Betty still had to strip down on set with the cast and crew watching. We know you’re wondering, “was there anything between them?” Just sticker underwear shaped like a martini glass and a single sock on Peter.
Betty was concerned about how her boyfriend’s parents, who are in the medical field, would react to the steamy scenes and her portrayal of a doctor who sleeps her way to the “middle.” “Oh no, that happens all the time!” They said. Betty was surprised to learn that “apparently you can sleep your way through med school!”
