Pauline Chalamet is candid about the massive level of ‘grinding her teeth’ she experienced while mimicking sex noises while filming ‘Sex Lives of College Girls’.
The actor, who stars as Kimberly Finkle in HBO’s hit teen comedy-drama series, recently shared that recording sex noises for season 2 was “much weirder” than filming sex scenes .
“The worst thing is when you’re in ADR, when you watch the [scene] and they say, ‘We need a little more moaning’,” the 30-year-old said in a Friday interview with Variety.
In film, automated dialogue replacement (ADR) is used to improve the sound quality of an actor’s dialogue from scenes in a quieter setting such as a recording studio, after filming.
“You’re there and they’re like, ‘OK. Do a few more with your mouth open,’ she added, mimicking a comedic whimper.
Calling the awkward task the “quintessence of cringe,” Chalamet also revealed that she improvised ridiculous lines like “Wowee zowee!” during ADR.
Created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, “Sex Lives of College Girls” follows four 18-year-old freshman roommates at Essex College in Vermont as they explore their sexualities while navigating college life. The series also stars Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott as Kimberly’s best friends and housemates.
Later in the interview, Chalamet gushed about his desire to tap into the movie world.
Although she called the TV job a “blessing”, the actor, who had a role in Judd Apatow’s ‘The King of Staten Island’ in 2020, said he wants to work with directors such as Janicza Bravo , Ari Aster, Celine Sciamma and Sarah Polley.
“I would love to work on something where the connection and the relationship with the director is really nurtured for months,” she said. “To create something that is final.”
