Emma cut a low-key casual figure in a white T-shirt which she teamed up with brown denim overalls.

The Nanny McPhee star teamed her look with a pair of tinted white-framed sunglasses and a black backpack.

Emma showed off her ageless complexion for the outing, appearing to go makeup free as she enjoyed the spectacular views. 

Meanwhile, her co-star Daryl, 29, was dressed in a button-up shirt which he teamed with navy coloured shorts and black sneakers.

After competing the costal hike, Emma took off her sneakers and made her way to Bronte Beach pool and watched Daryl take a dip.

The handsome hunk slipped into a pair of red boardshorts as he enjoyed some fun in the sun, with his tattooed body on full display.   

Daryl recently revealed that he and Emma opted not to use an intimacy coach for the film.

The new movie follows Nancy (Emma), a widowed school teacher who hires a male escort (Daryl) for a date, hoping to experience an orgasm for the first time – with the two characters sharing very intimate moments throughout.

But Daryl told how he, Emma and director Sophie Hyde chose to navigate the scenes themselves as they felt it would be more ‘special’ to do their own ‘unique’ thing, with the actor adding that things were never ‘awkward’ between them.

While many TV shows including Normal People and Bridgerton brought in an intimacy coach for the sex scenes, the trio instead chose to choregraph their own sex scenes after first becoming comfortable with each other. 

In an interview with Bustle, the Irish actor, 29, said of the intimacy scenes with Emma, 63: ‘We felt like it was something we could do together, so we did. ‘It feels that little bit more special because it’s our own unique thing.

‘It started with simple things. Just talking about our body: the things we like and don’t like. There’s something about detaching judgment from yourself and just seeing the potential in your body and what it can offer you. That gives you access to step into the intimate nature of the film.’ 

Thanks to their rehearsals and concerted efforts to know and be comfortable with each other (Emma and Daryl enjoyed walks around the park together), when it came to the more intimate scenes, the duo were able to fully embrace the moment.

Daryl explained: ‘It didn’t feel awkward, giddy, or anything like that. We enjoyed what we were doing and felt safe doing it. We were such a team.’

With the promotion of their film, Daryl and Emma have had open and candid conversations about sex and intimacy, with the Peaky Blinders star noting that he’s learned from his character Leo that intimacy is ‘deeply intertwined’ in ‘almost every facet’ of who we are as people. 

He went on to add that people need to learn to ‘get away from’ the idea that intimacy is a ‘shameful’ thing and urged that it needed to be brought to the ‘surface’ and be spoken about.
