Love Scenes Get Awkward on 'Revolutionary Road'

Actors always say that filming love scenes is unavoidably awkward. Just imagine trying to replicate intimacy with a virtual stranger while cameras roll, lights shine down and the director shouts out instructions. Now imagine the same situation, except it's not a stranger but your best friend, and your own spouse is directing you both.

That's the situation Kate Winslet found herself in while shooting her upcoming film Revolutionary Road. It's the first time she has worked with Leonardo DiCaprio since Titanic became the highest-grossing film of all time a decade ago. While the two have remained close in the intervening years, it took this drama about a failing marriage in 1960s suburbia to get them on the screen as a couple again.
