If you’re a fan of the critically-acclaimed film, Set It Off then you’re familiar with Jada Pinkett-Smith’s steamy sex scene with Blair Underwood. Well, it turns out the scene didn’t actually feature the actress.
This week on Netflix’s “Strong Black Legends Podcast” host Tracy Clayton sat down with the always charming Blair Underwood and got him reminiscing about some of his past iconic work.
When the topic turned to the film Set It Off, Underwood started spilling some tea.
“For ‘Set It Off’, we had a love scene and Jada had a body double. She made the choice, and understandably, and people do that… for the physical body parts. Which I respect, like absolutely.”
He added, “Literally, this actress comes in like ‘Hi, nice to meet you, and you jump right in the bed and do all the physical stuff. It can be awkward sometimes.”
Underwood also confessed that he initially wasn’t going to do the film because of the subject matter.
“I was playing Jackie Robinson in a movie with Mykelti Williamson and Del Roy Lindo called “Soul Of The Game” and I was in this place of black historical figures and noble negroes,” he explained. “This was after Boyz N The Hood. I got the script and I was like ‘now we are going to do Girls N The Hood?’ There was a little pushback, I was like ‘why do they only want to see us as slaves or in the hood in Hollywood?'”
“But when I read it,” he added, “I saw the love story … and I thought it was a nice balance.”
In the film Underwood plays a bank manager who begins a relationship with Pinkett’s character not knowing she’s about to rob his bank.
Underwood can currently be seen in the Netflix’s docu-series, Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker.
