Oh I love Carice van Houten so so so very very much. Vulture interviewed her mostly about her role as the red priestess Melisandre in the upcoming second season of A Game of Thrones (beware there are some spoilers regarding her character), and they asked her about the show's much-ballyhooed "sexposition" (i.e. sex exposition, meaning having characters bone and/or be naked whilst chatting forward the plot) and she had this to say:
"It's weird: We kill everyone in films, we see blood, we see war, we see killing machines, but you cannot see a breast that your mother has. It needs to be in an elegant way, of course. But who has their bra on during sex? It's so much easier if you just let it all loose. Let it hang. Let people see some flesh. It's not necessarily my favorite thing to do; it's not like I'm running around with my bra off on every set, or going, "Hey, when can I take my bra off?" But I'm lucky enough to still be young enough where it's okay. I could understand not wanting me to do that if I were older. But if you're making love in a film, you gotta take the bra off. Same if you're birthing a shadow."
