Claire Foy says she feels ‘exploited’ filming sex scenes in Hollywood: ‘It’s the grimmest thing you can do’

Actress Claire Foy is open about what she considers a risk to her performance in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old was interviewed about her role as British social worker Margaret Campbell in the limited series A Very British Scandal. The series revolves around the period of the Duchess of Argyll’s divorce in 1963 which saw her publicly defamed as the “Dirty Duchess” after sexually suggestive pictures were published in the media.

Foy told BBC Radio 4: “It’s a really hard position because basically you feel taken advantage of when you’re a woman and you have to have fake sex on screen. You can’t help but feel exploited. It’s grim – it’s the ugliest thing you can do.”

The Crown actress added, “You feel exposed.” “Anyone can make you try not to feel that way, but unfortunately, that is the reality. But the thing I did was feel was that I felt very strongly that you should be in it, but I wanted to be a female. I didn’t want to be that kind. From the horrific sexual climax you often see on the cinema screen.”

The ‘Law & Order’ actress claims that Kris La “wasn’t sexually appropriate” towards her on the set

Foy has also been vocal in her distaste for women being “exposed” in the media for being open about their sexuality.

“I hate the phrase shame, absolutely hate it,” she said. “But I think women are basically forever shamed. I think Eve might have been shamed.

“There’s just one thing I hate about this title being paraphrased and used in a way that justifies it more. Perhaps the word ‘rude’ shouldn’t just exist.”

Despite feeling exploited as a woman in the show business, Foy said she sees a light at the far end of the tunnel but noted that the industry as a whole has a lot of work to do and appreciates that women’s voices are finally being heard. Consider their opinions.
