The scene has Rachel’s character walking completely nude towards Channing’s character and the actor had to use prosthetics to accentuate his nether regions. Channing says that he was skeptical about Rachel’s reactions in that scene. He jokes, “I really didn’t have faith in her acting. I wanted to get a real reaction from her.” He adds, “The funny thing is she was surprised and looked back at it again.” Now that is naughty!
