Default Would you be able to date/marry an actor?

With all the intimate scenes, could you handle it?

This thread would have been cooler if you would have added a poll to see the big picture

If the missus said "You know what RedJohn? I would like to go ahead and pursue a career in acting" I would stand behind the missus every step of the way, considering how much she has put up with me. Now, our relationship is based in trust (We are like best friends) so I would not have any problems with the intimate scenes as long as we have an understanding that she needs to be honest and not keep me in the dark about anything; being lied to would be actually what would disprove of.

Beginning a brand new relationship with someone in that field and with that kind of scenes. I don't know that I could make myself view the relationship as something serious.

The intimate scenes wouldn't bother me. The drama would.

Ba-DA-bum!

Darn it on the poll. Good idea.

I dunno, back in the old days it was different. Now with nudity being no big deal and rated R getting closer and closer to X, I'd be pretty uncomfortable, even if I trusted him.

Some even think and say that Jane himself is me

Back on topic, you are right about your statement. Society is starting to be more accepting of what's being done in the screen that movie and television producers seem to push the envelope further and further. Another thing that I would like to establish here is that what I mentioned is based only on my personal opinion as relationships out there vary from couple to couple; if you knew about our "history" you would agree more with my point of view, however like I stated at the end of my previous post, if it was someone I just met, I would probably take a different stand in this situation.

I totally agree. Every couple has their own level of security, their own deal. As open minded and secure as I am, and as much as I trust my partner, I'd be apprehensive. Probably because I dig him so much and don't want anyone else touching him. Mine, all mine.

(I'm gonna have to read up on your possible MPD. You're breaking my heart.)

wouldnt bother me a bit. at least the acting part. being a dancer, i would have no place to have any insecurities about dating someone acting out intimate scenes.

if it was a porn actor though that would probably be over the limit.

however, if we are talking about famous actors then the paparazzi and public life would probably be too much. and if we are talking about the stereotypical struggling actor then.... well general rule of thumb is i dont date anyone who lives in their parents basement.

I can't see myself with an actor, no. Not because of the roles but the because of the lifestyle. Struggling to find work or successful and gone a lot? I don't want a flashy life.

I think it's a moot point at this time, so I'm not gonna torture my little head early-early. Why? Do you have actors lined up, PTC?
