Henry Cavill says snogging co-star with tongue was ‘too much’ after slamming sex scenes

Superman icon Henry Cavill might not be a fan of filming sex scenes, but he’s also pretty against snogging with tongues with his acting co-stars – leaving Amy Adams red-faced

Henry Cavill declared kissing his co-star with tongue was “too much” in a candid sex scene confession.

The Superman star had to snog Amy Adams for the 2013 Man of Steel movie, and the pair discussed things on The Graham Norton show while promoting the film. Asked about her “really specific” kissing technique from director David O. Russell when she was working on The Fighter, Amy learned to put her tongue on display in snogging scenes – and tried to carry that over to her next project.

Amy explained: “David O. Russell has a thing with tongue, okay? He likes to see it, like a 1980s music video or something. I tried that with Henry, it didn’t work! They were like, ‘Ew, what’s that?’” Henry chimed in to admit it was “too much” as Amy said: “I was such a creeper for poor Henry.”

She went on: “Like I know it’s all you know, but I talked to other people like, ‘Oh, Henry is beautiful, he’s such a nice guy’, but then you say it in front of him and then you feel really creepy.” At this, Henry jokingly moved a few inches away from his co-star on the couch, before detailing his own experience filming sex scenes.

Magazine, explaining: “He’s the nicest person on top of being just a wonderful actor and wonderful looking. He’s also got this great humility and he does a really great job in the role. He’s got a great sense of humour, but he’s not cheeky at all, so… I kind of wish he’d misbehaved!”

Henry confessed on the programme: “When you think of it, when you’re having sex with someone you’re normally alone! When you’re on set, you’ve got at least 12 really very heavily set men watching you and it’s not comfortable, and things aren’t happening as naturally as they should. You know, there’s a lot of this [thumping].”

The Witcher star has previously admitted that he became “aroused” during a sex scene, telling Men’s Health that it happened while he was filming The Tudors. Henry said: “It’s 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, um, it got a bit hard. 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.”

Now he thinks sex scenes are unnecessary unless they add something to the plot, telling the Happy Sad Confused podcast: “There are circumstances where a sex scene actually is beneficial to a movie, rather than just the audience… [but] I think sometimes they’re overused these days. It’s when you have a sense that you’re going, ‘Is this really necessary, or is it just people with less clothing on?'”

He said: “That’s when you start to get more uncomfortable and you’re thinking, ‘There’s not a performance here. There’s not a piece which is going to carry through to the rest of the movie.'”
