“Hit Man” stars Glen Powell and Adria Arjona filmed every sex scene with rashes all over their bodies

“[It] wasn't very sexy because it was more like ‘Cut!’ and we were both like ‘Get off of me!’” Arjona recalls.

Sex scenes can help strengthen actors’ on-screen chemistry and create a connection between characters, but they’re not always as sexy as you might expect behind the scenes.

Case in point: Glen Powell and Adria Arjona filmed their Hit Man love scenes under less-than-ideal circumstances. In a clip from the duo’s forthcoming appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Arjona explains how they overcame an immense obstacle to bring their cinematic romance to life.

“This will describe Glen really quickly,” Arjona says in the clip. “I'm breaking out in a rash and Glen is freaking out for me. He's like, ‘What do you want?’ He calls a nurse. This whole thing is happening. He's like, ‘Adria, are you fine? Should we postpone this scene?’, all this stuff.”

Powell shouldn’t have been so concerned for Arjona, as he had problems of his own. “I was like, ‘Dude, have you seen yourself in the mirror?’” Arjona remembers. “And he just looks at himself in the mirror. He's like, ‘Oh my God, I have it too!’ And he had it all over his body, but he was so focused on me.”

Arjona and Powell ended up proceeding with the scenes anyway.

“We were like, ‘Well, I guess we're just gonna put makeup on it,’” the actress recalls. “And we ended up going ahead, and we did all our sex scenes with this rash, which wasn't very sexy because it was more like ‘Cut!’ and we were both like ‘Get off of me!’”

Hit Man sees the Anyone but You star reunite with filmmaker Richard Linklater, whom he previously worked with on Fast Food Nation, Everybody Wants Some, and Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood. Linklater, who also helmed acclaimed movies like Before Sunrise and Boyhood, wrote the screenplay for Hit Man with Powell.

Powell broke down his character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“A lot of this movie is really about the way we label ourselves, and the way we see ourselves moving through the world,” the actor said. “Gary is a man who’s moving through the world without an identity, so to speak. He just is attracted to what he is attracted to. He loves ornithology, he loves audio A/V equipment. He’s fascinated by a lot, but passionate about little. He doesn't put any thought into the presentational part of his life, except when he is in these sting operations.”
