Hilarie Burton opens up about shooting an "inappropriate" makeout scene on One Tree Hill

Burton got candid about filming a makeout session between Peyton and Lucas.
She was told to undress Murray while they kissed in his father’s bedroom at a party.
She told the episode’s director she would only do two or three takes and that it was too “inappropriate” to do any more than that. She had a conversation with her manager.
Burton went on to reveal the support she had from her co-stars and crew.

“Chad was cool to leave a white tank top on underneath his button-up shirt so I wasn’t just kissing his bare body because that’s weird. We’d all known each other for a couple of months [or] a couple weeks? I was so whacked out about it. They wanted me kissing all the way down his body, down to his belt. I don’t know that you see it, but I had to undo his belt.”

“I was, like, crying in my trailer. I’m like, ‘I don’t want to do this. It feels dirty. It feels like they’re trying to sex everything up,’ I felt like a prostitute. It was the first moment that I was, like, ‘I’m kissing someone for money. I’m getting paid to do this, like, performative [thing]’. There’s a morality thing where you’re like, ‘Am I a sex worker in a way? Is this OnlyFans in 2003?’”
