March 18, 2016 – USA Today – ‘Bronze’ has the ‘most crazy, epic’ gymnast love scene ever, says Melissa Rauch

The Bronze, is a hard R-rated comedy about a washed-up Olympic gymnast who can’t move past her glory days, staring Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch. Captain America: Winter Soldier’s Sebastian Stan plays rival gymnast Lance. And here’s one thing you should know about the Sundance movie that gets a theatrical release today: There is a racy, not-to-be missed scene with Rauch and Lance.

“The most crazy, epic gymnastics sex scene ever!”

At least that’s how the movie’s major love scene was described in its script, said Rauch, who wrote the film with her husband, at the movie’s Hollywood premiere.

That would explain why the laugh-out-loud-funny scene contains flips, splits and handstands. So, how did that sequence come together?

“We sorta bullet-pointed what those (gymnastic) moves would be. It was the closest to a porn that I think I’ll ever write. And we had a phenomenal gymnastics coordinator, Kristina Baskett, who did all of the gymnastics including the ‘sex-tastics.'”

Another important element of the sequence: Rauch and Sebastian Stan had Cirque du Soleil performers as body doubles, “but Sebastian did a lot of his own stunts,” said Rauch.

So we asked Stan: Which stunts were his own?

“I would say there’s a few upside-down press-up pumps that are happening that are all me.”
