almost 10 years ago joaquin phoenix starred in the movie Her from the hand of Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt. A story that impacted many because, despite being science fiction, they wondered if what happens in the film could not happen in reality, taking into account that technology is advancing faster and faster.
Theodore (joaquin phoenix) is a lonely and shy writer who is depressed by his divorce. He buys an artificial intelligence operating system with which he is fascinated and which he named Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). As he uses it, he is impressed by the type of conversations they begin to have, and it is from that moment that they begin a romantic relationship.
Throughout the film all kinds of talks take place, which become more and more personal and intimate until they end up having virtual sex, something that was really challenging for the actors, and especially for joaquin phoenix who felt very uncomfortable recording it.
Let’s remember the scene complete in the following video:
the scene of Her that bothered Joaquin Phoenix
Scarlett Johansson and joaquin phoenix, along with the production team, had agreed to record the scene in one take. The main reason for this was because they knew it would be uncomfortable and therefore they wanted to do it as quickly as possible so that the moment would pass and they would have everything solved.
3, 2, 1… Camera, action! At that moment they begin to say the dialogue and the actor began to feel annoyed with the situation, to the point that it seemed that he could not control it. Because of this he directly stood up and left the recording studio.
He took a break to relax so he could return to the set to finish the scene. Luckily it was amazing and on the screen the nerves or the discomfort that the actors felt when recording it were not noticed.
