Actress Michelle Williams turned to an unusual form of therapy after filming “toxic” sex scenes with Ryan Gosling for their new movie Blue Valentine – she would scream out the window as she drove home each night.
The Brokeback Mountain actress reveals she struggled through the emotional shoots on the romantic drama and needed to release her pent up feelings to “escape” from the gruelling production.

She tells W magazine, “We never rehearsed anything, and those were really dark days. We shot the beginning of our relationship first, and it was fun and alive. Then we did the sex scenes and it was… toxic. Ryan and I had stopped relating to each other as Ryan and Michelle. Those scenes took forever.

“I had a long drive from set to home each night, and I would roll down all the windows and turn up the music as loud as I could and hang my head out the window like a dog and scream. It was my escape.”
