Lucy Lawless Says Her Hubby Supports Her 'Spartacus' Sex Scenes

January 7, 2011 (7:16 am) GMT
Rather than complaining about her modesty, Lucy Lawless admits her husband even encourages her to disrobe and get on with it.

TV star insists her husband has no problems with her full frontal nudity and explicit sex scenes in racy drama "" - because he's a producer of the show. The former "Xena: Warrior Princess" star appears completely naked in many scenes as Roman socialite Lucretia, but her husband Robert Tapert just cheers her on.

She admits he even encourages her to disrobe and get on with it - rather than complain about her modesty. Lawless tells Access Hollywood Live, "He's a funny guy... He just says, 'This is a great story...' It goes against me sometimes. He's like, 'Lucy, I know you're gonna be uncomfortable with this but that's the way it is.' "

And the actress admits she likes the fact her husband isn't around on set when she's filming sex scenes. She adds, "He's not on set those days. He's busy producing upstairs and he doesn't hang around making us all uncomfortable."
