Love Actually actor Bill Nighy's was ridiculed by film crew over the size of his manhood when he first stripped off on set.

The British star, who hates filming sex scenes, was left feeling insecure and embarrassed by the communal mockery of his genitals.

Nighy, 55, says, "The first time I took my underpants off, the cameraman looked down and said, 'Oh Bill, why didn't you say something?'

"And he shouted to his assistant, 'Get me a magnifying lens. I can't see bugger-all from here', and all the boys went, 'Oh Bill, sorry mate.'

"So, no, it's not my idea of midnight love..."
