Riley Keough had a sex scene with her real-life husband in Daisy Jones & the Six
For Riley Keough filming a sex scene with her actual husband “Daisy Jones and the Six” was undeniably “strange”.
Keough, 33, opened up “Late Night with Seth Meyers” about how her husband Australian stuntman Ben Smith-PetersenShe made a racy cameo in her new Amazon miniseries, which premiered March 3.
“‘Well, the cameo came about because I have to have intercourse with a random person on the show,” she said. “And the producers said, ‘It would be so funny if it was your husband.'”
Elvis Presley’s granddaughter said that filming such an intimate scene with her real-life husband was definitely “more awkward” than working with a stranger.
“Usually when you’re doing these things and someone comes in for the day, you say, ‘Hi, nice to meet you,’ and you kind of get down to business and it’s very professional,” she said. “But with him…really, we just giggled the whole time.”
In Daisy Jones & The Six, based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 bestseller of the same name, Keough plays singer-songwriter Daisy Jones, the leader of a fictional ’70s rock band.
Reid, who is also the show’s writer and producer, said she was blown away by Keough’s performance from the start.
“Riley came on very early,” she said told TODAY.com in February. “I think we all thought that it was going to be really difficult to find Daisy Jones because she’s this really larger than life character. And then Riley showed up and right away (we were) like, ‘Oh, there she is. She is Daisy Jones.”
“Maybe I wrote the book for her without knowing it,” she added.
Keough and Smith-Petersen met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road in 2014 and recently celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary.
In January, Smith-Petersen assisted Keough with the Memorial service at Graceland for her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, who died at 54 after cardiac arrest.
At the ceremony, Smith-Petersen read his wife’s tribute to her late mother.
“Thank you for being my mother in this life. I am infinitely grateful to have spent 33 years with you. I’m sure I chose the best mom in the world for me and I’ve known that for as long as I can remember you,” he read.
