fun fact: Michael Cera asked Rihanna if he could slap her ass for real and she said “you can slap my ass for real if I can slap you in the face for real” and he was like alright. and they did the take like 3 times and Michael was like “you’re not hitting me hard enough do it for real” and then she slapped the fuck out of him and threw off his equilibrium so much he had to go lay down in his trailer for like half an hour lmao and that’s the take they used in the movie with no added sound effects
Make sure you give plenty of reassurance on all fronts. Even if the person acts like they don’t need it. Make sure you’re making a point to gently open them up. They won’t always want to talk about things, and they will oftentimes be far more sensitive than most….
