Director Sam Taylor-Johnson had a miserable 2019 Valentine’s Day, filming her husband making out with another woman.

The romantic holiday fell on the day Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Odessa Young filmed a sex scene for their new film A Million Little Pieces.

“I kind of knew what we were getting into when we were writing it (but) it’s another thing when you’re filming it,” Sam told James Corden on The Late Late Show. “Odessa is an amazing amazing actress, and the two of them were blocking it out and composing the shot – and then, I’m behind the monitor. I’m watching it and I’m like… ‘Oh, I’m feeling something!’

“I turned to my assistant director and was like, ‘Really, did you have to schedule this on Valentine’s Day?’”
