Watch: Henry Cavill Bulks Up to Play the "Man of Steel"

Man of Steel star Henry Cavill may look out-of-this-world hot in his sexy Superman suit, but it wasn't the easiest thing to get on and off during filming.

In fact, Cavill admits it wasn't the best thing to have on if you needed to pee.

"There was no fly," the hunky actor recently told E! News. "There was no zipper. So it's just one of those things where you got to wait for the right time."

Costar Russell Crowe, who plays his superhero father in the flick, agrees. "You couldn't get your bits and pieces out of it," he said of his suit, adding, "It took nearly 25 minutes just to get it off."

Nonetheless, Cavill dished, "It's a Superman suit and as much as it may feel uncomfortable at points, you get over it. You get to play Superman. You get to be wearing Superman's suit. Every time you turn around and look in the mirror it's, you are Superman. Those are special moments."

As for bulking up for the Man of Steel role, the 30-year-old actor said, "There was the building stage, the mass building stage, there was a leaning down bit before shooting and then there was the leaning for the shirtless stuff." Cavill added, "You sit there going, ‘I haven't done enough, I haven't done enough. I'm not lean enough, I'm not big enough.'"

We think you look just fine, Mr. Cavill.
