"I try to be sensitive to the fact that we're doing something intimate, but also keep a clear boundary," he explained.

"Because I'm in a very committed relationship, and I'm also cognizant that it's not my girlfriend's favorite part of my job. It's a delicate balance to strike, to be emotionally open enough to have an experience that feels honest between two people but also maintain that it's just for the film. It's not my favorite thing to do."

"I'm also a germaphobe," the actor revealed to Elle. "I've been profoundly germaphobic since I was a young child. I don't want to kiss anyone but my girlfriend for my whole life."

Explaining its origin, Hunnam said, "there was a parasite from dogs in the north of England that, if you ingested it, could turn you blind. We had a thing in schools to educate the kids about the importance of hygiene, specifically around dogs, because we had a few kids who went blind. That horrified me."

"The point is, everyone thinks it's great to be an actor and get to kiss a bunch of beautiful actresses in films, but I actually hate it."

Hunnam was originally cast to star in the "Fifty Shades of Grey," but backed out of the project due to a scheduling conflict.

He would be seen next in the 2017 anticipated Guy Ritchie movie, King Arthur.
