Superman actor Henry Cavill was once locked out of his Los Angeles hotel room while naked.
The British actor made the embarrassing revelation on NBC chat show Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night (22Mar16).
Henry, 33, is currently on a promotional tour with new Marvel Comics movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
After travelling to Los Angeles to meet the movie’s director Zack Snyder and personal trainer Mark Twight to prepare for his role as the Man of Steel, the star blamed jet-lag for the unfortunate mishap.
“I had landed in L.A., dropped my bags off at the hotel, met my agent for dinner and a drink and then went to bed,” he told programme host Seth. “I passed out a bit jet-lagged and I woke up to the sound of my door closing in my hotel room. Of course, I then realised that I was on the outside of my door – and I had no clothes on.” The actor blamed the room’s confusing layout for the accident. Urging him to continue, Seth joked that the actor’s story was a “dream” for a TV host.
“I had completely gotten up to go for a pee… I got out the right-hand side of the bed and just went straight for the first door I saw and woke up completely naked in the hallway. Being naked in the hallway is a pretty big problem, but I needed to pee and I was desperately thinking, ‘Where am I going to pee?'”
Henry joked he eventually had to urinate off the hotel’s roof to solve his problem.
“I felt like a little boy again. Then it dawned on me that I hadn’t quite solved the problem because I was locked outside my hotel room naked—and on the roof now,” he said.
This isn’t the film time the outspoken Man from U.N.C.L.E star has revealed how getting naked has put him in an awkward position. During the film of sex scenes for the historical BBC drama The Tudors he admitted to magazine Men’s Health that he got a little over-excited. “I had to apologise profusely afterwards,” he told the magazine. “It’s actually acutely uncomfortable being naked in a roomful of people.”
The new Superman v Batman movie, which also stars actor Ben Affleck as Batman, is released in the U.S and U.K. this Friday (25Mar16).
