Passion quenched as J-Lo told to keep clothes on
The pair were filming "Angel Eyes", but Caviezel didn't want to see the stunner nude.
He told the Daily Mirror that he wanted J-Lo to cover up so she didn't offend his wife, Kerri.
"I want to respect her," he said. "The only bare breasts I want next to me in my life belong to my wife."
J-Lo, twice voted "World's sexiest woman" by FHM readers, filmed the scene with her bra and pants on.
This is not the first time he wanted a co-star to cover up.
Dagmara Fomincyzk, who starred in "The Count of Monte Christo" with Caviezel has revealed "to give the illusion we were nude I had to take my top off, but Jim was very nervous."
"Since I had my jeans on I just took off my underwear and held it in front of my breasts, from then on he became much more at ease."
Caviezel is a devout Catholic and prayed for 15 minutes every morning before exercising and going to mass when he filmed "The Passion of the Christ".
But the Mirror showed a less serious side of the actor as well. When he was asked how he prepared for the role of Jesus, he replied: "I walked on my pool twice a day. It's hard to do."
