  • THIS is how she remembers the tale

Dive into the juicy details as Victoria Justice, the former 'Victorious' starlet, opens up about her nerve-wracking first day on the 'Depravity' set, facing the daunting task of filming her first-ever sex scene.

Discover how the actress overcame her anxieties with a little help from a supportive director and a respectful co-star.

Lights, Camera, Awkward!

Imagine stepping onto the set of a gritty crime drama, your heart pounding, palms sweaty, only to find out your first task is to get down and dirty on camera. Welcome to Victoria Justice's world!

The 28-year-old actress and singer shared her first-day-on-the-job jitters during a candid chat on SiriusXM Hits 1 LA with hosts Tony Fly and Symon.

"Really guys? We're gonna schedule this for the first day? Cool. Thanks for that," Justice humorously recalled, setting the tone for what sounded like an episode straight out of a Hollywood newbie's nightmare.

It's not all glitz and glamour when the cameras roll for a sex scene, as Justice quickly learned.

"My first day on set though, I had my first ever sex scene, which was like, I’m like, ‘Really guys? We’re gonna schedule this for the first day? Cool. Thanks for that,’" Justice recalled.

Justice said the scene was not a pleasant experience. "It is uncomfortable," she said. "I was really nervous. I was actually very, very nervous about it, and totally anxious about the entire situation and I was like, ‘Did I make the wrong choice? I don’t know if I should do this.’"

Enter Paul Tamasy, the director with a plan. His reassurance and willingness to collaborate offered Justice the comfort she needed. "He made me feel very comfortable about it," she said, highlighting the importance of trust and communication in such sensitive scenes.

And what about the mystery man sharing the screen? Despite being practically strangers, Justice praised her scene partner's politeness and respectfulness.

The actress added that her scene partner also helped minimize any discomfort. "The actor I was working with, we were friends and well, friends as much as we could be," she said.

"We barely knew each other because it was the first day of filming. But he was a super nice guy and made me feel very safe and was very polite and respectful, so it went well and it’s very tasteful, and yeah. It’s good."
