Top 5 Movies That Put The FUN In Infidelity!
I joke, of course... There is actually nothing funny at all about infidelity. Sexy, maybe, but fun, no. (Aaaand.... Cue the comments about me thinking cheating is sexy). To be clear, I'm talking about Ryan Gosling sexy... like Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams sexy in The Notebook. NO one can argue that they made an affair look HOT. In the rain. On that "note," put your copy of "Fifty Shades of Grey" down, because I've compiled a list of the top 5 Infidelity movies with make out or sex scenes that, for lack of better words, might get your juices flowin'...
The title of this film pretty much says it all. The always-hot Diane Lane plays a wife married to Richard Gere. She starts this HOT and heavy affair with the equally hot (and French) Olivier Martinez. Did I mention how hot it was? Long story short, someone dies. Because of said affair.
2) THE NOTEBOOK
Basically, it's like this... Romeo, (Ryan Gosling) falls in love with the rich Juliet (Rachel McAdams). Her family doesn't approve. They have sex after getting drenched in the rain. The must keep their love a secret. Everyone cries. The end.
3) MATCH POINT
It's hard to believe that Woody Allen wrote and directed this sexy and intense drama starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and my girl crush Scarlett Johansson. Meyers plays a tennis pro who has an affair with his brother in-law's girlfriend. The whole thing gets out of control and in order for him to save his marriage and get the financial support he desperately wants, he kills Johansson. Before that though, they have hot sex.
4) BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY
Talk about sexy with a heavy dose of sad; this beautiful movie directed by Clint Eastwood is one of my favorites of all time. There are plenty of sensual and special sex scenes that as a high school student (movie premiered in 1995) I can remember thinking were sensual and special. But the best, most poignant scene about how tormenting infidelity can be was the scene where Francesca almost leaves her husband, literally, for the love of her life. Oh, and shocker, this scene (which will make you bawl), takes place in the rain.
5) IT'S COMPLICATED
Another Meryl Streep movie that I absolutely love. This romantic comedy made it hard not to root for the main characters to have an affair. As much as I heart Alec Baldwin, I wouldn't necessarily say that this was a "sexy" movie, but it was sweet, funny, and totally relatable. Also, Nancy Meyers' movies inspire me in all things décor and home design more than anyone on Pinterest ever could. Enjoy.
So it's official, the sexiest and saddest love scenes take place in the rain. Add infidelity to the mix and it's even better. Well, you know what I mean. What are your favorite movies with infidelity as a through line?
