Hugh Jackman, who is well-known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, has had his share of embarrassing instances while filming in the industry. One such includes Jennifer Garner, with whom, Jackman starred in 2011’s Butter. The movie in question was the first collaboration between the two actors and as fate would have it, it had a love scene that did not go as expected.

While the actor enjoyed other aspects of the film as well as working with Garner, the love scene was what left Jackman humiliated. Even Jennifer Garner called it horrifying.

“There was one scene where we make out in a car, but it’s never seen, you can only hear it. So I’ll never forget this – the sound guy, the director, me and Jen Garner got in a car to make making love sounds.”

The actor even revealed how both of them had to do the scenes separately, which instead of helping with it, increased the awkwardness between the co-actors. It is also to be noted that Butter was the first film in which Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner collaborated.

“It’s kind of humiliating as we discovered he couldn’t record us both at the same time, so one had to perform, then the other had performed and I’m really glad she went first because I never would’ve gone as far as she did unless she had gone first. I don’t think I’ve ever been more embarrassed in my life,” he added.

Jennifer Grant disgusted by the love scene

When Jennifer Grant was cast in 2011’s Butter, it was much different than the roles she usually played. Butter‘s plot which focused on a comedic sculpture competition between several contestants intrigued Garner so much that she produced it. Talking about her role, Garner said,

“It’s not very often that you get handed a piece of material that, the minute you crack it open, you’re completely drawn into a world. It’s a world different from anything I’ve ever played, seen, been to or been in. And that’s intriguing.”

However, one of the scenes in the film did not end up being appealing to the Peppermint actor.

“I’m such a huge fan of his,” she once told E News. “It was so horrifying.” 

It was not a good addition as it was the first time the two actors worked together, which happens to be a common instance in the industry.

“It’s always like that. It’s always like, ‘It’s nice to meet you, now let’s moan and groan,’” she said expressing her disgust.
