Jacqueline Bisset has been viewed as a sex symbol for much of her career but admits she's "relieved" she doesn't get asked to do sex scenes anymore.
"Actresses these days seem so easy with their bodies," the 69-year-old recently mused. "The sex scenes seem so realistic. The women used to be always underneath. Now the women are on top. Interesting, isn’t it?"
In her new film, Welcome to New York, everyone but Jacqueline's character seems to be having sex, which the Golden Globe winner is perfectly fine with. The story follows the head of a finance fund [played by Gerard Depardieu] who is a unrepentant sex addict, and the brunette beauty plays his wife.
Inspired by the true story of disgraced International Monetary Fund head, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the drama is being labeled the most controversial film of the year due to its explicit and relentless sex scenes.
When asked whether she'd ever been in a relationship with a sex addict, Jacqueline responded, "No, but I’ve known very sexual men. In the film Gerard’s character says he needs the sex to make him feel young. Everybody’s needs are different and everyone’s sexual appetite is different."
Despite her early bombshell status, the actress has done only a few raunchy scenes, one of which still makes her angry.
Jacqueline told the Daily Mail her iconic image from 1977's The Deep was way more revealing than she originally anticipated.
"That stupid photograph was tacky, awful. I thought they had covered me up completely," she shared. "But I’m not going back there. I’ve got over it."
