Toni Collette says she “asked intimacy coordinators to leave” because they made her “anxious.”

Toni Collette has revealed she asked the intimacy coordinators to leave the set while she was staging sex scenes on camera.

Intimacy coordinators are people hired by productions to ensure the welfare and consent of actors filming sex scenes and are now commonplace on television and film sets.

The Hereditary star, his latest project The power released later that month, claimed that the presence of intimacy coordinators on set made her “anxious.”

“I think they’ve only been brought in a few times, and I’ve come to trust and feel very comfortable with the people I’ve worked with,” Collette said in an interview with The times.

“It just felt like the people who were made to do it to make me feel more comfortable were actually making me more anxious. They didn’t help, so I asked them to leave.”

Since intimacy coordinators are still a relatively new role on set, Collette was asked if she would have appreciated their presence early in her career.

“That depends,” she replied. “You see, every job is different. Every single job is different. Because it’s a bunch of new people, it’s a new energy; Everyone brings their whole life with them and everything is thrown into the pot. You never know what you’re going to get, and it’s a wonder a film ever materializes, let alone thrives.

“I’ve been very fortunate that I’ve only worked with a few assholes in the decades that I’ve managed to keep this boat afloat.”

In recent months, a number of other high-profile actors have offered their opinions on intimacy coordinators.

Sir Ian McKellen claimed the coordinators ruined the “purity” on set. However, Dame Emma Thompson has described them as “absolutely essential”.

In a new interview with The Independent, game of Thrones Star Ciarán Hinds spoke about being “turned off” from the hit HBO series by the sheer number of sex scenes on the show. Toni Collette says she “asked intimacy coordinators to leave” because they made her “anxious.”
