Chris Pine thinks his nude scenes are as big a deal as Michael Fassbender’s
Chris Pine assures he’s equally as impressive as Michael Fassbender in their full-frontal nude scenes, even though Pine’s only naked onscreen for a fraction of the time.
“A lot has been made about me being nude, and quite honestly, I’m only naked for — it’s no Fassbender situation,” Pine, 38, told BBC Radio 1 on Tuesday.
Pine was referencing Fassbender’s infamous nude scene in Steve McQueen’s 2011 sex addiction film “Shame.”
Still, make no mistake: He’s not intimidated by Fassbender’s member, quipping, “I mean, I’d certainly match him.”
Pine explained of his choice to go briefly full frontal in a bathing scene in “Outlaw King,” “Underneath the emperor’s clothes, he’s a naked person. I want to see the animal and I want to see the king.”
Pine is used to fielding questions about being naked onscreen.
“I bear the full monty [in ‘Outlaw King’] and it got a lot of attention,” he said on “The Graham Norton Show” in October. “I thought the witty reviews were brilliant, but what did strike me most is that Florence Pugh bares everything too and no one commented. I am not sure what that means — either people think they can’t comment or everyone expects women to get naked. Either way, it’s double standards.”
