Blair Underwood Reveals Jada Pinkett-Smith Used Body Double in 'Set It Off' Sex Scene

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.

Underwood made a guest appearance on the Strong Black Legends podcast and spilled the 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.”

This clearly didn’t leave a strain in the actors’ relationship because Blair Underwood showed love to Red Table Talk on his Instagram page about a week ago.
