Nikki Bella says John Cena's intimate movie scenes affected their relationship.

The 'Total Divas' star - who is currently ''just friends'' and on a break with the professional wrestler - admits she found it tough seeing her partner get naked on screen.

Speaking on 'Total Bellas', she said: ''Imagine watching your man do a sex scene and have the whole world see his big butt. You know, you get visuals. I swear, I couldn't masturbate forever because I just think of the sex scene.''

Nikki recently insisted her and John are ''just friends''.

She said: ''Right now, we're just friends. We're working on each other and trying to work on us, and we talk every day. He is not only my best friend, but he truly is one of the best people I have ever met, and he has patience with me and he has really taught me a lot over the last few months, and I think one of those things is an inner strength that I thought I had, but didn't realise how strong I had it.

''It's giving us this time in life to see what we really want for the future. I know for some people, because of the media or what they read on social media, they look at this as a very negative thing, but ... I don't want to be someone who gets a divorce, or who has kids and gets a divorce. I truly want to walk down that aisle, I want to give my vows and I want this to be one time. I'm beyond grateful that I have this amazing man, who is staying by my side and helping me fight through those issues and helping me become just an even better person, and even stronger.''
