Henry Cavill: 'Man of Steel' Superman suit was hard to pee in but worth it

"Man of Steel" star  Henry Cavill is officially part of the superhero movie club. He's learned something most who wear one of those hero costumes come to terms with over time: It's really hard to use the bathroom.

In an interview with E! News, Cavill talked about the difficulty of being able to take a break to relieve himself in between takes. "There was no fly," he says, "There was no zipper. So it's just one of those things where you got to wait for the right time."

His costar, and movie dad, Russell Crowe agrees, adding "You couldn't get your bits and pieces out of it." According to Crowe, it took about 25 minutes to remove the costume from Cavill. It doesn't sound like something the actor would change, though.

"It's a Superman suit and as much as it may feel uncomfortable at points, you get over it. You get to play Superman," Cavill says, "You get to be wearing Superman's suit. Every time you turn around and look in the mirror it's, you are Superman."

Cavill isn't the first to lament about the difficulty of using the bathroom when you're a superhero. While promoting "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 2012, Andrew Garfield talked about the difficulties he ran into wearing his famous suit.
