Thanks to "Love Actually," we know that filming sex scenes is a pretty awkward situation for everyone involved. But thanks to director Joe Carnahan, we can now know just how awkward it is on a real set.

Carnahan has released a behind-the-scenes clip from "Stretch" in which actor Patrick Wilson is lying on top of Brooklyn Decker, mid-coitus. The moment isn't so magical when you zoom out to see a crew member spraying Wilson's back with water, Decker lowering the intensity by laughing, and hear Carnahan yell "Great fucking!" afterwards.


The movie hits iTunes and Amazon on Oct. 7.
