The movie sex scene most likely to spark real-life passion was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting it on in Mr & Mrs Smith.

The couple famously fell in love on the set of the 2005 blockbuster about a husband and wife struggling to keep their marriage alive until they realise they are both working as assassins.

The second most popular sex scene replicated in real-life is George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez's on-screen passion in Out Of Sight.
