Luke Evans Sang 'Beauty And The Beast' Songs During Sex Scenes For 'The Girl On The Train'

The actor opens up about how he likes to overcome awkward nude scenes with his co-stars


The Seven Dwarfs might have whistled while they worked, but Luke Evans employs a completely different tactic to pass the hours at the office – the office being a film set and work involving stripping off for a sex scene.

In an interview with E!, the Welsh actor admitted he and Haley Bennett would get drunk and sing Broadway songs when filming raunchy sex scenes for their upcoming film, The Girl on the Train.


'I thought we should have a little drink just to take the edge off. We were tipsy.

'We were show-tunes-singing-drunk while having fake sex. We sang Lion King,' he revealed.


There's nothing like a bit of 'Hakuna Matata' to get you in the mood, right?

However, Bennett later admitted that Evans' memory must be hazy as she recalls them singing songs from Beauty and the Beast, the live action adaptation of the hit Disney film in which Evans plays Gaston.

'He has a false recollection. It was his own movie. It was Beauty and the Beast,' she explained.

Well, whatever they sang, it seems to have worked as clips of their steamy scenes in the trailer continues to have us hot under the collar.

However, we're not quite sure we advise singing Disney songs the next time you're feeling frisky.

'Be our guest', isn't exactly going to set the tone.
