Here’s what the 36-year-old Outlander star had to share with William Shatner, who conducted his interview:
On if he’s even been in bed with someone who farted: “I think it’s probably more gentlemanly to ignore it. Is it not? Unless it’s someone you know very well.”
On a smelly, on air story: “We were doing an interview on live television, and there were like five of us on the sofa, five interviewees chatting. And they brought out some haggis for the presenters to try. And haggis, as you know, is a delicious Scottish dish that should be eaten on occasion but… I thought it looked uncooked. There was this terrible stench and it smelled like someone had, I don’t know, lost control of their bowels. But I think everyone else thought someone had farted, and we’re all sitting there talking on this couch, and I was convinced it was one of the other presenters. And they probably all thought, “Who is this very smelly Scotsman?” But they all proceeded to try the haggis, and I think they’re probably going to be very, very ill.”
