Ethan Hawke said that he and Maya Hawke were "comfortable" working with each other on sex scenes.
Ethan directs the film "Wildcat," in which his daughter Maya stars as novelist Flannery O'Connor.
Maya said that they had an intimacy coordinator on set for her scene partners' comfort.
The pair spoke with Variety about the new film, which they are allowed to promote during the SAG-AFTRA strike by virtue of its interim agreement. Ethan directed "Wildcat," a drama about American novelist Flannery O'Connor, and penned its script with Shelby Gaines. The original idea for the film, per Variety, came from the "Stranger Things" star herself.
In addition to starring as O'Connor, Maya also plays six different characters from the author's short stories that are depicted in the film. It's those roles that required her to perform in some intimate scenes – which were, of course, overseen by her father.
"We were so comfortable with it," Ethan told Variety of the sequences. "I couldn't care less."
Those intimate scenes, according to Variety, also starred Rafael Casal and Cooper Hoffman. Ethan said that he thought that it may have been "weird" for Maya's scene partners, and that they wanted to take care of both of them as well.
"We made sure to have an intimacy coordinator on set for them," Maya said. "So that they felt safe and comfortable and not like they were being spied on…"
"…By some creepy dad," Ethan said.
