Shooting intimate scenes with De Niro was tough: Jovovich

London: Actress Milla Jovovich admits that shooting love making scenes with actor Robert De Niro in `Stone` was tough.

"(Character) Lucetta (is) definitely a tough character, with the nudity and the sexuality; especially to have to get intimate with people you`ve only met that day. It`s hard... You feel violated," she said.

The 34-year-old admits her role as a manipulative convict`s wife in the gritty movie was one of her biggest challenges - and she had to rely on husband writer-director Paul WS Anderson, to help her, reports a news website.

"You come home sobbing. My poor husband would have to deal with it," she added.
