11. Shakespeare in Love(1998)

Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes star as Thomas Kent/Viola and William Shakespeare in this passionate, interesting take on the playwright's life and inspirations. Shakespeare could get pretty steamy in his plays to begin with, so it's easy to see how so much of this movie ended up so passionate.

The sexy love scenes in this movie are actually quite beautiful, so it becomes more about the passion and the intimacy, rather than simple sex – as you shall see!

Cast: Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow
TheSexy Movie Love Scene: There are actually a number of sexy scenes in Shakespeare in Love, but the sexiest of them all is probably the most romantic: Will and Viola in bed, literally romping in the sheets.

What's So Sexy about It: What's actually sexiest about this scene is its reality. I don't actually know that Elizabethans had sex quite that way, but in addition to the forbidden, dangerous aspect of their love, Will and Viola's scenes together are joyful and passionate.
