One penned: ‘um, Netflix, were you under the impression this was a new book or something? my mum (and gran) definitely already read it and watched previous adaptations with enthusiasm.’

While after reading the book and an interview, another remarked the film needed ‘more dialogue’ from the Lady’s lover to ‘spice things up’. 

Last month, Emma discussed watching their ‘exhilarating’ nude scenes in Netflix’s adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover with her family – who ‘coped’.

The actress claimed they ‘didn’t have to fake anything’ while filming ‘completely naked’ in the Welsh countryside, as they spoke on The Graham Norton Show.

They said, ‘When I got the script Laure (de Clermont-Tonnerre) our director was already attached and she is incredible.

‘And there was a crazy scene where they both dance naked in the rain. For some reason I was like, “Yes, sign me up!”

‘I think certainly that it was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done in my life.

‘In film making it is pretend so it’s rare that you are actually in a situation where you are literally thinking and feeling exactly as your character would be.

‘Being completely naked in the Welsh countryside meant you didn’t have to fake anything, you were just feeling it and it was quite amazing.’

Asked if their family has seen the film, they joked, ‘They all sat through it and all coped – weirdly I felt more sorry for my flatmates having to sit next to my family while they watched it. But, they are all still talking to me!’

Viewers will see Lady Constance Chatterley [Emma] embark on an illicit affair with Mellors [Jack] after growing bored of her sexless marriage.

Connie takes a lover after her husband’s war injury prevents him from being physically intimate with her. 

It comes after, Emma, who uses the pronoun ‘they’, spoke about the freedom of filming naked scenes with Jack in Lady Chatterley’s Lover in an interview with The Cut, which is accompanied by an edgy photoshoot.

Hilarious: They said: 'There was a crazy scene where they both dance naked in the rain. For some reason I was like, "Yes, sign me up!"

Wow! 'I think certainly that it was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done in my life'

They said: ‘I’m so glad that it didn’t feel like gratuitous nudity. We spoke about that a lot when we started rehearsing. 

‘We always wanted any sex scene, or any part of the film, to be totally justified in their experience, and also to evolve. 

‘The last scene, when Connie goes to Scotland and she knows he’s behind her before he’s there, we filmed that quite near the beginning, and I’d forgotten. When I was watching it for the first time, it really got me.’

Shocking at the time: Netflix recently released an insight into the upcoming film, which promises to be every inch as X-rated as the story which sent shockwaves through society

Emma also spoke about the importance of touch in the movie.

They said: ‘I think [touch] was a huge part of it that in COVID everyone felt that lack of intimacy not being able to hug family, or be near people you care about. 

‘Connie is so starved of any intimacy, physical intimacy. I wonder if studies have been done now about how people haven’t realized how much we need that. 

‘We need comfort, touch, and intimacy as part of our mental wellbeing and stability.’

Making waves: The movie is an adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's classic (and notoriously banned) erotic novel and will premiere on November 25 and on Netflix December 2
