Conan O’Brien aired his late night show from Mexico City on Wednesday, in an attempt “to bring positivity to the people of Mexico and let them know that we hear them.”
The host’s first interview as part of the “Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico” special was Diego Luna. The two enjoyed a shot of mezcal in the name of Mexico before O’Brien asked him about his sex life.
After noting that Luna began his acting career as a child star in Mexican telenovelas, O’Brien revealed that the actor “had sex on film before you had actual sex.”
“Yes, you’re going too far,” Luna responded with a laugh, before revealing that the scene was filmed when he was just 12 years old. The actor detailed what was going through his mind at the time.
“I arrived, I was very nervous and I was just like, ‘I hope she likes it and after the scene, because I know it’s not going to be sex, but then something can start from there,’” Luna told the host. “And then I get there and I see 40 people looking at me with the camera ― s**t. And all I could just think of was, ‘Oh, I don’t want to have a hard [on], please, please, please. I don’t want to get too excited.’ And obviously it didn’t happen. I was 12, I couldn’t control it. She was very nice; she hid it.”
