Dylan McDermott, the sexy leading man on the new FX series American Horror Story, is talking about the nude scenes that come with playing his character and reveals that at 50 he knows he has to stay in fit shape to look good on screen. Dylan has been doing such a good job with the “looking fit” part that he has become the object of other people’s affection … both women and men. And you know what, Dylan says he’s fine with the attention. Click below to read what Dylan has to say about his nekkidness and check out a few semi-NSFW screencaps of his nekkidness from American Horror Story.
Given his recent nude scene on American Horror Story, it’s no wonder why men and women alike have the hots for Dylan McDermott. “I knew going into it that there was nudity and that a lot of people would be watching, so I knew I had to be in really good shape,” the 50-year-old tells The Advocate. “I’m no fool, so I hit the gym and watched what I ate. Actually, when I first got the role, production called me and asked, ‘Who’s your body double?’ I said, ‘Oh, hell no. It’s going to be all me, baby.’” McDermott — a divorced father of two — says that while he’s grown accustomed to being nude on set, he doesn’t let it all hang out in between takes. “When I’m in the role, in the moment, I’m comfortable,” he explains. “After they yell ‘cut,’ I don’t need to put my balls in someone’s face.” Since American Horror Story’s premiere episode (where the actor revealed his bare butt on camera), McDermott says he’s been hit on by more gay fans than ever before. “Honestly, I’m cool with everyone, and people pick up on that. I’d say, ‘I’m not gay, but it’s all good,’” McDermott tells The Advocate. “It’s kind of like going to Paris when you don’t know the language: some Americans get into trouble over there, but I’m just like, ‘Sorry, I don’t speak French.’”
Hahahaha … I love the “I don’t speak French” analogy. I mean, yeah, McDermott had to know that his hot nekkidness would attract from both women and men. I think it’s really fantastic that a 50 year old man can illicit this kind of attention. Age ain’t nothin’ but a number … and if you can look this good at 50? Then you go, boy! Sounds like he’s got the perfect attitude. And I hope we get to see more of his, er, attitude in the flesh on AHS :)
