Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Has Been Approached By Fans in the Gym Shower

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau flashes a smile while heading into LAX Airport on Wednesday (March 2) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old Game of Thrones actor recently opened up about the strangest place that he’s been recognized by fans.

“Twice at the gym, it’s happened in the shower, I’ve been butt naked,” Nikolaj told British Airways’ High Life magazine.

“Someone goes ‘What are you doing here? Can I have a picture?’ I said ‘Sure… can you give me five minutes to dry off?’ It was more about them being really surprised. I have that sometimes: when I see a journalist that I watch on the news and suddenly he’s there in the supermarket. You go ‘What? How does that work? You’re supposed to be inside the box!’

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on 'Gods of Egypt' Whitewashing Critics: 'I'm Not Even Playing an Egyptian'

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is all smiles while heading into The Today Show‘s studios on Thursday morning (February 25) in New York City.

The 45-year-old actor recently responded to critics of his upcoming movie Gods of Egypt who say that the film whitewashes Egyptian characters.

“A lot of people are getting really worked up online about the fact that I’m a white actor. I’m not even playing an Egyptian; I’m an 8-foot-tall god who turns into a falcon. A part of me just wants to freak out, but then I think, ‘There’s nothing you can do about it.’ You can’t win in that sort of discussion,” Nikolaj said.

FYI: Nikolaj is wearing a Tatras Reno coat.
