10 Celebs Whose Parents Watched Their Sex Scenes (PHOTOS)

Allison Williams

On a recent Girls episode, 26-year-old Allison Williams shocked fans with an X-rated sex scene. It made headlines not only for its explicitness, but because of how unexpected it was to see the actress shift from her recent turn in NBC's ultra-wholesome Peter Pan Live! to awkward derriere sex on HBO.

For Allison's parents, NBC anchor Brian Williams and wife Jane Williams, however, watching their daughter get, as Allison's character Marnie puts it, "ass motorboated," was no big deal:

"She's always been an actress ... For us, watching her is the family occupation and everybody has to remember it's acting, no animals were harmed during the filming, and ideally nobody gets hurt," Brian said when asked by a reporter how it was to sit next to his daughter as he watched the scene for the first time. 

Not everyone is so even-keeled about watching their kids get it on, however. Read on for nine more celebrities whose parents saw them have sex on-screen.

Which reaction surprised you the most?

    Margot Robbie's big breakout role in The Wolf of Wall Street was memorable for many reasons, including the full-front nudity scene she did early on in the movie when her character seduces her future husband Leonardo DiCaprio.

    And although the 24-year-old Australian actress was game to take it all off for a Martin Scorsese role, she wasn't so eager to tell her family about it and admits that she actually lied to them about it!

    "I said, 'I don't care what you hear, there is no nudity. I'm not doing any nudity. Ignore anything anyone's saying. There's no nudity.'"

    However, after the film was released, she realized that she'd have to change her story

    "The lie evolved to, 'Well, actually, it's a body double and they just CGI'd my head onto someone else,'" she said. "And my family doesn't have anything to do with the entertainment industry, so they totally bought it."

  • Dominik Garcia-Lorido

    As the daughter of actor Andy Garcia, Dominik Garcia-Lorido has grown up around showbiz. That still didn't prepare her for the moment she watched her first sex scene alongside her parents, especially since she originally had a no-nudity clause in her contract for her role on the now-cancelled Starz show Magic City.

    "In one scene I lose my virginity in the shower," she explained. "In this scene you saw my butt and sideboob ... I talked to my dad about it beforehand and got really emotional talking to him because it was the first time I had really done something like that, and I really cared what my parents thought.

    "We watched that scene together — me, him, and my mom — and it was fine," she added. "They actually thought it was beautifully done."

  • Shailene Woodley

    Shailene Woodley was raised by, in her own words, "two psychologist parents who are the most beautiful, selfless people I've ever met." Perhaps it's no surprise that not only did they watch their 22-year-old daughter's sex scenes with co-star Thomas Jane, 45, in the upcoming film White Bird in a Blizzard, but apparently, they approved!

    "My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it," she said.

  • Mila Kunis

    Mila Kunis may be happily playing the role of new mom to daughter Wyatt these days, but back in 2010, her Black Swan lesbian sex scene with co-star Natalie Portman was causing waves, especially among Mila's own family. Apparently, Mila's dad walked out of the film at a screening during her on-screen romp:

    "We knew [the sex scene] was going to attract attention," she said at the time. "I feel sorry for my dad though ... I just don't think he wants to envision his daughter doing that kind of thing. I'm not sure if he's going to be able to see Friends With Benefits. He'll be leaving the theater a lot. I think I might have to ban him."

  • Rupert Grint

    Even men can get uncomfortable when it comes to their family and on-screen sex. For Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint, the embarrassing moment came when his parents saw his first ever sex scene in the 2009 film Cherrybomb.

    "It was agonizing," said the 26-year-old British actor. "The scene's quite tastefully done, but it's not the sort of moment you really want to share with your mum and dad ... When the scene arrived, we all sat there not really saying anything. Afterwards nobody talked about it, which was kind of a relief," he added.

  • Kristen Stewart

    6

    On her quest to leave Twilight behind, Kristen Stewart has taken risque roles in movies like On the Road and Welcome to the Rileys that have required her to get intimate with her co-stars. It's something she admits can be "difficult" to watch with her mom and dad:

    "I know it's funny to talk about it from an outsider's perspective, like 'Oh, it must be weird to sit down and watch your ass with your mom' or whatever, but it's so weird being on the inside of it," she said.

  • Nina Dobrev

    7

    Even though Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev has never done nudity, she claims it's still weird for her parents to watch her act out sex scenes with her on-camera lovers, even though they try to be supportive.

    "I've done movies where there are simulated sex scenes, so they understand, but it's always kind of awkward ... They say things like, 'Oh, you look great. That's interesting.'"

  • Julianne Hough

    8

    The day that Julianne Hough filmed her first sex scene in the 2013 movie Safe Haven, her mom just happened to be visiting her on-set. But rather than let her watch her get it on with co-star Josh Duhamel, Julianne made her stay put in her trailer.

    Still, everyone in her family eventually saw the love scene at the film's premiere, a moment that Julianne called "uncomfortable."

  • Dakota Johnson

    9

    It's a given that there is going to be a ton of sex in the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation, but even though the movie's star, Dakota Johnson, is the daughter of two actors, she reportedly doesn't want either of them to see her breakout performance! 

    According to Melanie Griffith, she and Dakota's dad, Don Johnson, are personae non gratae at the screening

    "I don't think I'm going to see it ... [Dakota] was like, 'You guys cannot come. There's no way.' So we're not going."
