It's every actor's worst nightmare- doing a sex scene and your junk thinks it's all too real and responds accordingly.
We are sure it happens to many an actor, but they might have a 'what happens on set stays on set' sort of mentality. Henry Cavill however has been very vocal recently in his interview with Men's Fitness about the time his body responded enthusiastically while filming The Tudors.
"It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," he said in the interview . "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."
He was expectedly embarrassed by the whole thing; "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."
Despite what the actors make us believe, it's apparently not nearly as saucy as their performance portrays. "It's actually acutely uncomfortable being naked in a roomful of people," he said. "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."
