On the Monday episode of the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, the

‘Man of Steel’

actor, Henry Cavill made an appearance where he discussed with director Matthew Vaughn and admitted he’s not a fan of sex scenes in movies.

“I don’t understand them, I’m not a fan,”

he said.

“I think there are circumstances where a sex scene actually is beneficial to a movie, rather than just for the audience, but I think sometimes they’re overused these days.”

“Is this really necessary or is it just people with less clothing on? And 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’.”



actor went on to note that

“sex scenes can be great in a movie”

and that

“They can really help with the storytelling,”

he continued.

“But most of the time, human imagination is going to trump.”

Vaughn also shared a similar perspective when it comes to filming intimate scenes.

“The thing I really don’t understand and you’ve noticed I don’t really direct them because I can’t get my head around them is sex scenes,”

he said.

“It’s just something I don’t understand.”
