“How to Get Away with Murder” star Karla Souza plays a gynecologist in her new romantic comedy “Everybody Loves Somebody,” and she said the experience was interesting -- to say the least.

“[Going to the gyno] is like [going to a] therapist, but she’s doing stuff down there while you’re talking to her, and it’s a little weird. Let me tell you, acting it out is even weirder,” says Karla.

To prep for her role, the director of the film, Catalina Aguilar Mastretta, sent her to her own personal gynecologist, who carried out an exam on his nurse in order to demonstrate his work to Karla, who felt a bit awkward: “I didn’t know where to look!”

And that was just the beginning. “I’m in between legs the whole beginning of the movie. And the extras hadn’t been told, so they hadn’t shaved and one of them had a little fart and I was right there!” she adds. Sounds like she got the full gynecologist experience!

The bilingual film includes dialogue in both English and Spanish, but bouncing between the languages is something Karla is familiar with. She grew up in both Mexico and the U.S. and was a huge star in Mexico before breaking out in English-language TV with “How to Get Away with Murder.”
