Christopher Mintz-Plasse was still a virgin when he filmed Superbad sex scene

Christopher Mintz-Plasse was still a virgin when he filmed Superbad sex scene

"I was actually a virgin, so I had no idea what I was doing"

The comedy Superbad turned 15 years old this year, which we find quite hard to believe.

The Greg Mottola directed film featured the likes of Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

In case you never got the chance to watch this iconic comedy, Superbad follows two high school seniors, Seth and Evan, who have high hopes of finishing school with a successful graduation party.

The pair plan on scoring some booze and hope to lose their virginity, but things don't exactly go to plan.

But, if you haven't seen it, you'll definitely know who McLovin is.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse, first appeared as Fogell (aka McLovin) in Superbad, and went on to become one of his most famous roles.

In the film, Mintz-Plasse had a sex scene, which his mum had to be present for because he was 17 at the time.

Back in 2021, the actor was interviewed by Rich Eisen on The Rich Eisen Show, where he was asked to set the record straight on a number of rumours about his career.

Eisen bought up the sex scene in Superbad and the fact he was underage, he asked: "Because you were only 17 at the time - you were the youngest cast member - your mum had to be on set for all your scenes, including your sex scene in the movie. Is that a true story?"

Speaking via phone, Mintz-Plasse, now 33, replied: "She did not have to be there for everything, but she 100 percent had to be there for the sex scene, absolutely."

Christopher Mintz-Plasse was still a virgin when he performed the sex scene.

The actor was then asked if he thought it was 'weird', which the Kick Ass star agreed with, calling it 'uncomfortable' before revealing that he was also a virgin at the time.

He said: "It's definitely uncomfortable when you're - at the time, I was actually a virgin, so I had no idea what I was doing.

"I was very nervous, very scared, and then I look over to Video Village [the nickname given to the area around the monitor on set] and my mum is eating a handful of popcorn talking to the producers."

Later in the interview, he said his mum 'was having the time of her life' after describing the moment as a 'very, very surreal' experience.

Fans of Superbad will be disappointed to learn that a sequel will probably never happen, as Seth Rogen has vowed never to touch it.

Speaking to LADbible in 2020, he said: "I think of all the movies we've ever made, Superbad is the one I'd 100 percent probably never touch.

"Honestly, I don't think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I'm unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up - people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it."
