‘Poldark’ star Aidan Turner says he doesn't feel objectified by all the attention surrounding his shirtless scenes on the BBC drama. The Irish actor says he finds it all ‘hilarious’ and maintains that he doesn't mind having to take his top off, as long as it makes sense for the scene.

Speaking to The Times, Turner said: “I don’t feel objectified, it’s funny! It’s just a couple of people admiring your body. It’s like doing any other scene. It’s the same as me galloping on a horse on a beach.”

“I have always felt these semi-naked scenes, or ‘Ross with his top off’, work.,” he added. “If he is down the mine, he is hammering away — on Sunday night we saw it — so it wouldn’t make sense with a shirt on. It would look odd. In those days as well!”

When asked what he thought about the reaction to his shirtless scything he said it was, “out of my hands. It’s hilarious, is what it is. It’s hard for me because it makes sense for the story so after that my job is done.”

Turner previously admitted that Ross taking his top off was his idea, because it made sense to him. “It was never in the script that he takes his top off – it just made sense to me”, he told the Radio Times. “That’s the worst thing about it. It was my bloody idea.”
