Lucy Lawless - Lawless: 'My Husband Pushes Me Into Sex Scenes'

TV star LUCY LAWLESS insists her husband has no problems with her full frontal nudity and explicit sex scenes in racy drama SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA - 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."
