Darren Criss has ‘no problem’ getting naked on screen

Former Glee star Darren Criss has revealed he has “no problem” getting naked.

The 31-year-old actor, who portrayed real-life serial killer Andrew Cunanan in FX’s American Crime Story: Versace, stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (June 7) to talk about his role in the drama show.

During his interview with DeGeneres, the talk-show host asked whether he had a problem appearing naked on-screen.

“Well, now I don’t,” he answered. “I did this right out of Hedwig And The Angry Inch, which was a [Broadway] show that I did which required me to be in pretty good physical shape, so I lucked out.”

The camera then cut to a large screenshot of Criss’ backside, to which the actor joked: “I baked those myself.”

The Versace actor isn’t joking either, as the show featured Criss strip down naked, prance around in a pink speedo and grab his package all for the camera
