How Did Henry Cavill Get A ‘Boner’ During An Acting Scene?

Batman v Superman’s Henry Cavill confessed in a recent interview that he had to apologize for becoming aroused during an acting scene.

“Um, it got a bit hard.”

The Clark Kent actor says that he found himself in an embarrassing situation while playing the character of Charles Brandon on The Tudors. The show is known for its “Rated R” and “Rated MA” natures, especially due to its nude and sexual scenes.

However, because it was just acting, Henry Cavill wasn’t supposed to actually become visually aroused, as reports the New York Daily News. Yet, in an interview with Men’s Health, Cavill elaborates further.

“It only happened to me once and it was very embarrassing…

“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.”

Henry’s movies tend to attract a lot of attention from female viewers, due to his physical appearance and energy. For some, it’s almost as if they’re living vicariously.

One woman, Rhoda Morgenstern, commented on the New York Daily News article and mentioned, “He would never have to apologize to me!”

Nevertheless, during Henry Cavill’s interview, he also said that the most influential piece of advice he’s been given has come from Guy Richie. It deals with the nature of ego and oneself.

“Don’t be ruled by one’s ego. We all have an ego. And as soon as you let go of that ego — which allows you to become offended or upset by anyone — then, everything is so much easier.”

Henry took part in this interview as part of his exclusive for Men’s Health, September 2015. As it turns out, he’s on the cover.

While he’s been taking these publicity opportunities, Henry Cavill actually has a lucrative schedule lined up for the upcoming years. According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), aside from Batman v Superman, Justice League — parts one and two — have been announced, and Cavill is set to play the role of Superman.

Both Batman and Superman are well-known DC Comics characters and are expected to bring in tons of revenue upon their premieres and movie releases.
