‘Sherlock’ star Martin Freeman prefers to be completely nude in intimate scenes on screen.

The 43-year-old actor said being naked while filming is easier than using a ‘pouch’ to cover up with, reported Digital Spy.

“It’s not an easy thing to get naked in front of 80 people eating bagels or whatever. I’ve done a few naked things in my time and after a while I stopped using what they give you.

“They give you a discrete pouch, a sock sort of thing. It’s like a medieval purse,” he said.

The ‘Hobbit’ actor said that pouches tend to fall off after a few scenes.

“Because it’s so humiliating. I think if the woman is not offended, I would rather just be naked,” he added.

Freeman also joked about the relationship between Sherlock and his character of Dr John Watson.

“Not only are John and Sherlock not a couple but that me and Ben are not a couple. So there are people that are actually absolutely determined that (my wife) Amanda is my beard… Me and (Benedict Cumberbatch) are friendly but we’re not married!,” he said on a lighter note.
