Eva Green was put at ease ahead of her sex scenes in 2003 movie The Dreamers after actor Louis Garrel complimented her on her breasts.
The Bond girl admits the racy drama challenged her, but Garrel suggested they strip off before the shoot to familiarize themselves with each other - and Green was surprised when the tactic worked.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "The sex scenes were quite full on and frank in The Dreamers. I had a scene in which my own character has to lose her virginity. I had to remember how I felt when I first had sex. I am so reserved in real life, but I surprised myself completely."
"I was asked if I wanted some alcohol before some of the scenes - and admit that I did have some whisky. There was a breaking of the ice before the sex scene.
"The actor Louis Garrel came into my trailer and said: 'I will show you my d**k if you show me your breasts.' So I did - and he did. He said to me: 'They look great.' So when it came to the sex scenes, it made it a little easier."
