Henry Cavill poses for photos while attending the UK premiere of his movie The Man from U.N.C.L.E. on Friday (August 7) at Somerset House in London, England.
The 32-year-old actor was joined by director Guy Ritchie and his new wife Jacqui Ainsley.
In a new interview with Men’s Fitness, Henry revealed that he once got an erection while filming a sex scene for his Showtime series The Tudors.
“It’s only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing,” Henry said. “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 afterwards. It’s not great when you’re in a professional acting environment and somebody gets a boner, is it?” Henry added. “No, not acceptable.”
“You don’t think of sex scenes as showing your bum to the nation,” he continued. “It’s actually acutely uncomfortable being naked in a roomful of people. 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.”
