Los Angeles: Actress Eva Mendes says she is uncomfortable doing intimate scenes in movies and that she deliberately avoids them.

The 38-year-old says she politely urges filmmakers to avoid sex scenes as she feels they are of no use in a movie`s plot, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"Love scenes are always awkward. They`re awful. I`ve managed to really skip through them. When I read that my character has a love scene, I carefully address it with the director: `Can we please cut this out? It`s gratuitous and there`s no need for it,` and thankfully that has happened," Mendes said.

"I try to avoid them whenever I can. I have done a couple of things that have been appropriate for the films I`ve been in, but I`ve never done a simulated sex scene because I feel like they`re rarely appropriate," she added.
