Can Professionalism Truly Outweigh Human Nature? Pondering On-Set Celebrity Hook-Ups
by Quierra Davis-Martin
Jada Pinkett-Smith and Pauletta Washington, how do they take it? How women deal with their husbands doing steamy sex scenes with other women.
We’ve all dreaded our man having to work closely with an attractive woman at one point in time. But imagine if your man had to do more than work with an attractive woman? What if he was a successful actor who constantly had to possibly kiss and do steamy sex scenes with the opposite sex? Can professionalism truly outweigh human nature?
Let’s take Denzel Washington, and Will Smith for example. These are two happily married men who are constantly working closely with attractive women. Sure they are in love with their wives but what happens when natural chemistry happens. Chemistry is something that can’t be defined. It’s something that just is. In our daily lives, we all get tempted even if we’re in a happy relationship but fortunately there are boundaries in life and we have ways to avoid situations that could possibly cause us to lust after the opposite sex. If your job is being an actor it can be hard to avoid situations like this.
Can acting ONLY be acting or is attraction bound to naturally develop when working that closely with the opposite sex? When thinking of this we are all reminded of the huge Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie scandal. These two filmed the popular movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith and shortly became an item soonafter. Not to mention, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.
Whatever the reasons being, working together affected these two in a very deep and serious away. It’s evident that attraction and chemistry could not be controlled on either part. As a result, hearts were broken and they are still together with a family to this day. I’m sure Jenifer Aniston cringes at the idea of dating another handsome successful actor. I’m sure the idea of him being attracted to his co stars ran across her mind, but him actually leaving her for a co star? I highly doubt she thought something like that could happen to her and her marriage.
