Charlie Hunnam talks full-frontal scenes: ‘I’ve got nothing to hide’

By Josh Haggis

Charlie Hunnam has revealed that he wouldn’t mind going full-frontal on screen.

Hunnam, who starred in Channel 4’s iconic gay-themed series Queer As Folk, admits that even though he was more “fearless” about the idea of explicit scenes when he was younger, he wouldn’t have a problem with baring all now if a role required it.


“The level of nudity that I do now, which is taking my shirt off, doesn’t bother me at all,” Hunnam told Elle.  “But I have done full frontal before. I did full frontal when I was 18 on the TV show Queer as Folk.”

“But because I was playing a 15-year-old character, the censorship people wouldn’t allow us to put it on TV,” he explained. “I think when I was young, I was a little bit more fearless with that stuff. I don’t know. I’m sure I would; I have nothing to hide.”
