Russell Tovey 'tweaks his nipples' before sex scenes

Russell Tovey "tweaks his nipples" before a sex scene.

The 33-year-old actor admits he is very conscious of his appearance so always tries to be at his best before shooting a raunchy scene for his show 'Looking'.

He said: "I keep the bush low, trim the chest hair and I like to get the nipples more erect, so I'll tweak them a bit too. Erect nipples add so much to a scene I think.

"I do worry about how I'm going to look in screen-grabs and GIFS. You know it's going to happen."

The openly gay star admits he finds it easier shooting same-sex love scenes with another gay man, rather than a heterosexual actor because he worries they will think he is "taking advantage" of them.

He told heat: "It's easier doing those scenes with another gay man than it is a straight man.

"The same way I feel fine doing sex scenes with a woman.

"When I'm doing a sex scene with an actor who is straight, I Feel a huge sense of responsibility not to feel like I'm taking advantage or anything.

"Like, I'll only touch their b***s if it says so in the script."
