She told People: “I’ve been asked a lot of questions about the sex scenes, like, ‘What was it like shooting the sex scenes?’ from people who’ve seen the movie, and I’m like, “What sex scenes?”

“And they say, “Oh my God, technically, not really. “

“We keep saying that tennis is the sex in the movie, and I think tennis contains a metaphor for a lot of things: desires, passion, pain, anger, frustration.

“I think they all use tennis as a way to communicate with each other when they just don’t have the words.”

In Challengers, scheduled for release on April 26, Zendaya’s character – an aspiring tennis star – abandons her career after suffering a serious injury.

Instead, she focuses on coaching her colleague Art, played by Mike Faist, with whom she falls in love and marries.

But Tashi finds her feelings dangerously divided after Art is entered on the Challenger Tour, where he faces Tashi’s ex-boyfriend Patrick, played by Josh O’Connor.

The steamy feature comes from Suspiria and Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino and features several steamy scenes.

The famous filmmaker praised Zendaya’s talents, explaining that she worked with tennis professional and former player Brad Gilbert to prepare for the role.

Luca gushed to Variety last October: “She’s wonderful. I mean, wow. We edited the film and we use almost none of his doubles. She’s so good.

In a recent interview, Zendaya admitted that having an intimacy coordinator on set was “very helpful” and praised him for maintaining a “safe” environment on set.

“We had an intimacy coordinator who was fantastic and very helpful, because it was important that we felt safe,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is infused with “intense” erotic scenes between Zendaya and her leading men, so the trio had to find ways to decompress while on camera.

“I spoke with my colleagues so we could find a way to feel comfortable. We played tennis together, we went out together, we practiced together,” she shared. “We need to bond and feel good with each other.”
