Nina Dobrev Says Her Mom Critiques Her Sex Scenes on Vampire Diaries
Are you this close with your mom? When Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show on March 12, she explained that her mother will sometimes visit her on the set of The Vampire Diaries — and that can be uncomfortable when she’s shooting certain scenes.
“The awkwardness and the weirdness is when my mom comes to set and I have to film like a sex scene or something,” Nina explains. “But what’s even weirder is when I come off set, and she starts giving me notes.”
Conan found that creepy — but he definitely wanted specifics. “Arch your back more, it looks sexier if you arch your back,” Nina says, giving an example of her mother’s suggestions.
Of course, any time Nina’s mother visits sets, there’s a good chance her daughter will be doing a sexy scene. Between her dual roles of Elena and Katherine, Nina’s gotten to make out quite a bit.
“I’m pretty sure I’ve made out with every guy on the show — as my character, of course,” joked Nina.
Um, we can think of at least one guy we haven’t seen her kiss: Steven R. McQueen, who played Elena’s brother, Jeremy Gilbert. That’s one liplock we don’t want to see!
