Henry Cavill Makes An X-Rated (And SUPER Embarrassing) Admission About A ‘The Tudors' Sex Scene

We’re not sure we’ll ever be able to look at Henry Cavill in the same way again, following his admission that he once got rather overexcited during a ‘The Tudors’ sex scene.

The actor, who stars in Guy Ritchie’s new film ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E’, makes the revelation during a chat with Men’s Fitness, and gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'wooden actor'.

He tells the mag that while filming the period drama, he once... well... oh, Henry can tell you himself.

"It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," Henry explains. "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."

Unsurprisingly, the star was left blushing, and he continues: "I had to apologise profusely afterward. It's not great when you're in a professional acting environment and somebody gets a boner, is it? No, not acceptable."

Despite his physical reaction to his co-star’s assets, Henry remains insistent that filming raunchy scenes isn’t at all sexy.

"The very last thing it is is sexy," he states. "The actual physicality is very uncomfortable. All you're doing is smacking your nuts against someone, and nothing is going in."

Sorry Henry, but you know what they say - actions speak louder than words.

The Jersey-born actor has come a long way since ‘The Tudors’, and you’re now more likely to catch him on the big screen.

In 2016, he’ll star in the hotly-anticipated ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ movie, after which he’ll reprise the role once again for ‘The Justice League’, parts one and two.
