If you were hoping to see Henry Cavill in his birthday suit and possibly doing the no-pants dance in his latest flick, you'll be very disappointed.

The actor's upcoming film The Man From U.N.C.L.E, which hits theaters this Friday, doesn't contain sex or nudity, and while that may seem like a bummer for some of us (after all, the cast is all gorgeous), Cavill explains that he's not bothered one bit by it.

"Sex in movies and on TV is OK if it actually serves the story," the star tells E! News during the movie's New York premiere. "But if it's just so you can see naked people, it's getting a bit old now."

Mmm, we'll agree to disagree on that tidbit.

Cavill is clearly no stranger to dropping trous in front of the camera, however, and recently shared a very embarrassing tale about an unfortunate circumstance that occurred while filming a naughty scene on set.

Appearing on the September cover of Men's Fitness, the Man of Steel star revealed he had to say sorry for getting a little turned on while filming a sex scene for The Tudors (in case you missed the point, he got an erection).

"It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," he admitted to the magazine. "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."

He continued, "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."

Hey, you're only human.
