Lupita Nyong'o is praising the presence of intimacy coaches on sets during love scenes. The Black Panther star tells Vanity Fair magazine she's glad sexism and abuse are now hot topics in Hollywood, but she believes Hollywood can be "oversensitive" to sexism in the wake of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.

That's why she's praising the inclusion of intimacy coaches on movie sets to help actors feel comfortable during sex scenes.

"I'm quite happy that there is that kind of extreme change, and hopefully we find equilibrium as we move forward," the 36-year-old explained.

Nyong'o says intimacy coaches are now more commonplace on movie sets.

"In the past, when it came to physical combat, there were always consultants on set, but when it came to intimacy there was never, ever somebody present to help actors navigate that," she adds. "Now you have that, which I think is a great inclusion, and ensures that those kinds of abuses don't happen."

As for her own real life love scenes, the bisexual star closely guards her love life, despite fans speculating over her rumored relationships with actress Tessa Thompson and singer/actress Janelle Monáe (pictured right).

"I feel like there's parts of myself that I care to share and then there are parts that I don't," Lupita explains of her desire to keep her personal life private.
