Apparently, Jonathan Rhys Meyers likes to keep it all natural!

The handsome star of NBC's Dracula confessed to The Evening Standard that he doesn't wear underwear when filming sex scenes for his television show. No boxers, no briefs, nada!

"I'm never wearing underpants when I do those sex scenes," he said. "I'm always half naked. Sex scenes, first of all, are very easy to do, because you're usually given somebody to work with who is very beautiful and attractive, so that makes it much easier, do you know what I mean?"

We're sure those beautiful and attractive co-stars don't have any complaints either!

However, the Irish actor did admit that rolling around in the sheets with gorgeous actresses all day isn't all it's cracked up to be.

"I'm telling you, you do two days of shooting sex scenes on a film set, you'll be exhausted after it," he explained. "You'll get back to your partner, you won't wanna touch them. You'll be like, ‘I just wanna have a bath.'"

The 36-year-old, who played King Henry VIII in Showtime's The Tudors, also implied that he's more comfortable playing dark, mysterious roles.

"People don't really cast me as the hero very often," he said. "I think my physicality lends itself more to being seen as a character who's got a little bit more duality than that. I don't look like the cowboy riding in on a white horse with a white hat. I'm more like the one in the black cap skulking in the corner."

There's nothing wrong with a bad boy!
