“I got really, really drunk,” J.Law told The Hollywood Reporter of her sex scene with Chris in Passengers. “But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don’t know.’ And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach.
