Ladies! Tessa Thompson is dishing deets on the steamy sex scenes with Michael B. Jordan in the upcoming Creed film. And guess what? BOTH of them were NAKED while filming. Oh? More inside…
When it comes to making a film as authentic as possible, it appears Tessa Thompson and Michael B. Jordan have no problem going the extra mile.
SELMA actress Tessa Thompson has been super busy promoting the upcoming Rocky sequel Creed, where she will play Michael’s love interest, a singer named Bianca. With budding romance in the storyline, there is also a few saucy sex scenes.
In a new interview with Hello Beautiful, the Dear White People actress shared a few inside details about filming those sexually charged scenes. The most interesting part? She and Michael were BOTH naked under the sheets as they filmed the scenes. Say what?! And get this, chick said it wasn’t awkward at all. We can imagine.
“The nudity for us in that, and first of all it’s a PG-13 film–but we are in fact naked under those covers,” Tessa explained.
We would die!
To keep those intimate moments as authentic as possible, Tessa said director Ryan Coogler was the only other person on the set as they shot those scenes. She said,
“I think for us it was about being emotionally naked and not so much the physicality. Mike and I were fast friends and we were long admirers of each other’s work, so we had an easy rapport and it didn’t feel awkward. Literally, when we shot it that day Ryan was the only one who was in and out of that room.”
“We wanted to talk about what Black love looks like and shoot it in a way that looks honest.”

Now we’re itching even more to see this film! Creed hits theaters November 25th.
