Can you cut straight(ish) lines freehand with a handheld circular saw?

When sizing 8×4 plywood boards, I clamp my spirit level along a line for a fence, as slight movement in your hand with a jigsaw can ruin your straightness. As the question above, would I still need a “fence” when using a handheld circular saw, or will the diameter of the blade help for more straight lines?

Edit: Thanks to all for the assistance.
