You think your lover is seeing fireworks, when in reality, they’re reenacting Meg Ryan’s infamous “I’ll have what she’s having” restaurant scene in When Harry Met Sally.
Ryan isn’t the only screen star who has had to fake it on film. Katherine Heigl reported that recreating orgasms for The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler was grueling. “Oh, my God, it was a nightmare,” she said in an interview. “It was really exhausting … legs dancing under the table and all the tensing up of the body. By the end of the day, I felt like I’d run a marathon. No one wants to orgasm 35 times a day!”
