Subscribe to Michael Sheen alerts

Welsh actor Michael Sheen has mastered the art of not thinking about sex while he's naked and surrounded by nude beauties on the set of his Tv drama Masters Of Sex.

The star portrays gynaecologist-turned-sex expert Dr. William Masters in the critically-acclaimed show and when he realised he'd be spending a large part of the shoot surrounded by naked women, he turned to a real doctor for advice on how to control his lusty thoughts.

He explains, "He said, 'You just switch that part of your brain off. You just don't go there'. I thought, 'Well that's never gonna happen...'

"I turn up on set and there are 15 naked woman around and if you let your mind go anywhere near the kind of pervy area, then you would just die, your head would explode.

"I didn't even choose to do it. I just realised, 'Oh, I've just turned that bit off'."
