Henry Cavill can deny that he’s playing Jack Hyde in Fifty Shades Darker all he wants, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t perfect for the film — especially in light of a recent, very hot and heavy confession made by Cavill regarding his, um, more erotic tendencies while on set!
Seriously, you might want to sit down for this one (and open a window, or grab a fan or a glass of ice water to toss in your face after reading!). In an interview with Men’s Fitness, the Man from U.N.C.L.E. star admitted that he once committed the biggest faux pas any actor can commit while filming a love scene — he got, er, a little too into it, if you know what I mean.
“It’s only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing,” he said of the incident, which happened while he was filming The Tudors.
“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.”

Toss that water in your face yet?? I told you this was a steamy one! One would imagine that the “spectacularly breasted” actress in question wasn’t too upset by the spontaneous occurrence (or maybe she was, who knows), but Cavill was mortified and apologized “profusely” for his behavior.
“It’s not great when you’re in a professional acting environment and somebody gets a boner, is it?” he asked before answering his own question.
“No, not acceptable.”
Well, sure, not acceptable, exactly — but definitely fodder for many a fan’s fantasies, that’s for sure. More importantly, though, if this isn’t proof that Cavill totally and completely belongs in the Fifty Shades Darker cast, I don’t know what is! The guy is obviously an amorous sort — enough so that even the notoriously unsexy process of shooting a love scene in front of a film crew wasn’t enough to turn him off.
“It’s actually acutely uncomfortable being naked in a roomful of people,” he said (hmm, is someone doth protesting too much??).
“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.”
Yikes, I never thought about it quite that way. But thanks for breaking it down for us, buddy. Now go and audition for Jack Hyde, will ya??
