The actor Sean Bean has raised blisters with his statements in an interview with The Times in which charged hard against the figure of the privacy coordinators, whom he accused of removing “naturalness” in the process in which “lovers behave”. A criticism that actress Emma Thompson has not liked at all, which she has not hesitated to answer.
“I don’t know if he was referring to someone who could have been distracted, but in almost every conversation I’ve had, people tell me ‘I felt comfortable, I felt safe. I felt like I was capable of doing this job.” Intimacy coordinators are one of the best introductions to our work“.

“No, you can’t let things flow. There’s a camera pointed at you and a whole team behind you, it’s not like when you’re in a hotel room. You are surrounded by a lot of things. It is not a comfortable situation. Point and end”, assured the actress in an interview for the Australian radio program Fitzy & Wippa.
But Thompson has not been the only one to speak out against Sean Bean’s wordsas the director James Gunn has also made his position very clear through the social networks. “Of all the new jobs the film industry creates, one I’m most grateful for is intimacy coordinators.”
“If they do their job well, and in my experience they do, they just make sure everyone is on the same page, both the actors and the director. In my experience, they make actors feel MORE free., no less, because everyone is clear about what the limits are and what the director wants from them. They’re not too different from action coordinators.”
Sean Gunn, brother of the director, has also shown his anger through Twitterabove all because believes that Bean’s words are belittling the work of actressesbecause they are usually the ones who are most coerced when the script requires that there be a sex scene.
