Wilson Selected Body Bottom Double For Film
LUKE WILSON was terrified when he found out he had a nude scene in his new film MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND and was thrilled when the producers eventually decided to call in a body double. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS star had let himself go and was panicked at the thought of disrobing in front of the camera. He explains, "I had a great year emotionally, but physically it was kind of a tough year. I thought it might be a good time to sit on the bench for that scene and let some other kind of more athletic guy take over there. "What they do, and I know this sounds kind of strange, is they give you Polaroids of guy's backsides. They have guys come in and then they give you the Polaroids and have you pick one out. "I found myself just kind of pouring over them saying, 'I like that one, but it doesn't have quite the pizzazz I want for this scene.' "Or, 'This one's good, but it's too muscular.' I've got a little hail damage back there. As you get a little older, you tend to kind of get little dents and indentations. "You want to kind of act cool about it when you eventually say, 'I like this guy's a**e...'"
