Jonathan Rhys Meyers says sex scenes are 'not unpleasant'

Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers isn't shy and has no problem getting his clothes off if the role demands it. Why not, says the smoldering Irish star, because most movie sex scenes are 'not unpleasant.'

The 'Tudors' actor swears he doesn't have any problems getting close to his his female co-stars, though admits it can be difficult with so many people on set filming their every move.

Said Rhys Meyers: 'Actually, it's not unpleasant to get it on with beautiful actresses and you don't have any nasty repercussions afterward. To make it work, you have to experience a little sexual chemistry. But it can be a bit taxing when you're doing sex scenes in front of a crew of like a hundred people under hot lights with cameras poking into all sorts of private areas.'

The 'Tudors' star, who has portrayed the in-real-life overweight English monarch Henry VIII in four series of the TV drama also claimed he doesn't mind getting cast for parts on the basis of his looks.

He added to'I'd rather people think I'm sexy than not. Let's be honest. Physicality is going to have a bearing on the parts you get. And if you think differently, you're in the wrong business.'

Tell that to Neal McDonagh.
