AceShowbiz - %cHenry Cavill% discussed his steamy workout to get into shape to play Superman in upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" during his appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday, August 12. Henry hinted at having a lot of sex to keep his body rock hard.
When %cJimmy Fallon% asked the "Man of Steel" actor what he does to get a ripped body, the actor cheekily responded, "I run. That's the savory answer." Henry then gave a smirk to the audience and said, "I think they did it." Jimmy asked Henry if he made it a good, long workout. "I try," the actor replied with a grin.
In an interview with Men's Fitness' September issue, Henry revealed he once got an erection while filming a sex scene for "The Tudors". "It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," the star of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." recalled, "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," he added, before noting that the entire process was actually very "uncomfortable."
"You don't think of sex scenes as showing your bum to the nation. It's actually acutely uncomfortable being naked in a roomful of people," he explained, "The very last thing it is sexy. The actual physicality is very uncomfortable. All you're doing is smacking your nuts against someone, and nothing is going in."
