He has revealed that while shooting Dracula in the early Nineties, he could not muster the courage to ask actresses to strip for the cameras.

“My films are not known for steamy-hot sex scenes. Part of the reason is I’m too shy to ask the girl to do it. You know, even in Dracula, where there was supposed to be these really erotic scenes, we’d make the deal with these girls and say, `OK, you’re going to be naked in it,’ and they’d agree,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

He also revealed that even his son Roman does not find himself bold enough to ask girls to take their clothes off.

“And then, on the day, she’s in there and she’s too shy. She says her boyfriend’s going to be upset. My son Roman was shooting second unit, and I say, ‘Roman, you go tell her she’s got to take her clothes off.’ And he says, `I’m not going to do it. Let the assistant director do it,’” he said.

“It’s always uncomfortable, and I always end up pulling back,” he added. (ANI)
