Zac recently spoke to the press about his numerous shirtless scenes in the film.

Zac shared, “I think Lee inspires a sort of fearlessness. I think he requires that, amongst his actors especially. He might come up to you at the last minute and tell you something pretty big about your character, something new you’re just wishing to try. Nothing is safe; you have to be prepared to bare it all.”

FYI: Zac is wearing a Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière suit and shirt.
