Christopher Meloni Strips Down for 'Men's Health,' Reflects on the Internet's Obsession With Him!

Christopher Meloni is baring it all on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s September 2021 issue, on newsstands August 10.

Here’s what the 60-year-old actor had to share with the mag…

On the viral comments about his butt and his body, and having a “cultural moment”:My ass is. It’s cool as sh*t. The aspect of age comes into play as far as the cover of [this magazine] and how I feel about it. A friend of mine said, ‘Did you ever think in a million years you’d be on the cover of Men’s Health?’ I said, ‘Certainly not at age 60.’”

On how his contract negotiations for Law & Order: SVU broke down: “My thought was: Instead of 22 episodes, bring me back for nine episodes, or bring me back for 18 episodes. They literally came to me on a Thursday night and said, ‘This is the deal. We want the answer by tomorrow. It’s our way or no way.’ I don’t want to f*ck around with you guys. This is what I want. If you can’t do it, that’s fine. Let’s figure out my exit.”

On how he deals with the anxiety his success brought him: “When something weird and out of the norm happens, I don’t panic. I always sit with it and go, All right, let’s experience what’s happening, because getting tenser is not going to help the situation.”
