Henry Cavill Pitched A Tent Shooting A Sex Scene, And It Got Awkward Fast

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 2.55.15 PM“It’s only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing. A girl had to be on top of me, she had spectacular breasts, and I hadn’t rearranged my — stuff into a harmless position. She’s basically rubbing herself all over me and, um, it got a bit hard.

I had to apologize profusely afterward. It’s not great when you’re in a professional acting environment and somebody gets a boner, is it? No, not acceptable.

You don’t think of sex scenes as showing your bum to the nation. The very last thing it is is sexy. The actual physicality is very uncomfortable. All you’re doing is smacking your nuts against someone, and nothing is going in.”
