Billie Piper Doesn’t Enjoy Sexy Scenes



British actress Billie Piper said she doesn’t enjoy filming sexy scenes, despite her role as a prostitute in Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

The star portrayed a high-class hooker Belle de Jour in the hit U.K. series, and is now set to take her clothes off once again in her new series, Penny Dreadful, co-starring Josh Hartnett.

However, despite the roles of sexy ladies, she insists she would rather stay fully clothed while filming.

She told Britain’s The Sun newspaper, “I’d rather not do sex scenes but I’m always interested in characters with wild spirits so I think sex scenes are inevitable.”

She has also revealed she was the envy of all her female pals after signing up to play alongside Pear Harbour hunk Hartnett, adding, “Do I fancy Josh? I did when I was younger… He’s totally gorgeous – I had a lot of jealous girlfriends.”

Penny Dreadful, which also stars Timothy Dalton and Eva Green, is a horror series produced by Sam Mendes and inspired by lurid 19th century British weekly publications.

More on Piper news, she vowed not to take career breaks. She told The Observer Magazine, “I think if you’re creative that’s a bit unrealistic.

You can’t stamp it out. But of course there are times when I am like: ‘I hate this!’ and I just want to be with my children in peace and quiet. But everybody has that. And there are days where you go: ‘Ooh, what if I did that…'”
