Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance needs to learn that there’s such a thing as bad touch. The director asked a lot of his stars in an effort to capture realism in his naturalistic study of a marriage falling apart. Cianfrance had Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling move in to the house where the film was shot for one month. To make matters creepier, they were also ordered to take care of their on-screen daughter. But it didn’t stop there.
In a move that sounds like something out of Pacey’s playbook, the director one night told Gosling to go into Williams’ bedroom and try to have sex with her. Gosling refused and slept on the couch. Thus, costing Popeater one article.
This plan was stupid from the outset. If it was realism that Cianfrance wanted, he got it. Married couples don’t have sex. (Huffington Post)
