Ha, I love the Valium reference. I think that he 'should suck it up', I mean, like at Brokeback Mountain. People go out of their comfort zone constantly, which I believe is a part of character building.


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown,
so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

I think if he's not comfortable doing it then it will affect his acting. I take it that in the film his character will want to be doing it ... but if he's really not wanting to then it'll show in his acting ... meh

If he didn't want to do the scene, he shouldn't have agreed to do the movie.

If the guy was going to be that uncomfortable he shouldn't have taken the part, he's just being whinny.

Well I believe they get the script beforehand so he needn't have taken the role. If he was not told what it would entail nor was it in the script then he has every right to refuse

It was a part of the job. If he really felt unable to do those scenes he wouldn't have signed up for the role. He had read the script beforehand, as far as I know, and he just felt like doing something weird that would push him out of his comfort zone. It's within his rights to say he felt uncomfortable.

As far as the Valium goes...Rob obviously has some sort of anxiety problem. He's said himself that he's a very paranoid person. If he needs anti-anxiety medication sometimes, I won't hold it against him. Just as long as he doesn't get dependent or OD or something.

um thats very unproffesional of the crew members and staff, giggling at his scene, wtf?
besides when actors do sex scenes they can ask for a closed set so there is only a few other people who are abolutly ness on the set.

I'd be uncomfortable if people were giggling while he was filming... that's awkward, especially like, guy/guy when you're not used to it and it's not your average sex scene or whatever?

If he's not comfortable doing it, he needs to back out. And I wouldn't blame him if he did. Though I'm sure he could stick it out.

Don't actors usually read scripts and what is expected of them before signing a contract? If he's uncomfortable with it and didn't know about the scene for whatever reason, he should probably get ahold of an attorney and try to contest the contract to get out of it. If he did know about it... he shouldn't have signed the contract.

He knew he had to do it, he did say he wanted to do something weird, it just happened to be harder than he thought. The giggling isn't really acceptable though, they should of had a closed set.As for the Valium, well I think it's fine if he needs something to keep him calm.

Yeah, the valium doesn't bother me. Alot of people use it before peformances, from concerts to actors. It's not that unusual.

Hm... He could probably arrange for a closed set.. if he decided to go through with it.

I don't get it... What's the problem? If he doesn't want to do it, quit that gig.
