Spike Lee’s Chi-raq may be about a woman who hosts a sex strike to end gun violence in Chicago, but the films’ stars Nick Cannon and Teyonah Parris still engage in a couple steamy sex scenes.

HipHollywood sat down with Cannon, who plays a Chiraq, and Parris, who plays his girlfriend Lysistrata, and talked about their on-screen chemistry and how they really felt about stripping down for the cameras.

“When you have chemistry with someone you just go there,  you don’t worry about the cameras being there, you protect one another,” explained Cannon. “But at the same time, you deliver what you’re supposed to deliver and that’s raw emotion.”

“It was kind of great because you really just had to trust,” added Parris who was last seen on screen in Dear White People.  “Nick was so good, and made sure I was really comfortable and you need that.”

Parris, also revealed that Lee had them shoot their sex scenes on their very first day of filming, and there may, or may not, have been some liquor involved. Check it out in the video above.

Chi-raq is in theaters December 4th.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
