Chris Pine On His 'Outlaw King' Full Frontal Scene: 'I Wish People Would Get Over It'

Chris Pine keeps it cool and casual while making his way inside the Ed Sullivan Theater to film his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (November 7) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actor revealed the research he did for his role as King of the Scots, Robert the Bruce, who he plays in the Netflix film Outlaw King.

Chris also recently spoke up about his character’s full frontal scene getting a lot of attention while the nudity of Florence Pugh, who plays Robert’s wife Elizabeth, has gone largely unremarked-upon.

“People are giggling about my penis as if we’re schoolchildren,” Chris told the Daily Mirror. “Florence shows her entire body in this film and no one is talking about that. People want to talk about my penis as if we’re a bunch of teenagers playing spin the bottle. Is Florence expected to do that because she is a woman and I’m not expected to do that because I’m a man? Certainly, there’s a lot of violence in this film and people get debowelled and stuff like that, and no one wants to talk about that.”

“This is the fifth film where I’ve had full-frontal male nudity,” Chris continued. “No one’s ever had such a fuss about it. And it’s far less than I’ve ever had before, and it’s totally motivated. The guy is washing himself in a loch in the Highlands and just pops out – I don’t know what the fuss is about. It says something about our times and I wish people would get over it.”

    I love Chris, but I feel like HE is the one who is constantly talking about it. If he didn’t want it discussed in interviews, then his manager could easily ban that question.
