White Lotus star admits penis was fake after sending fans wild in nude scene

The White Lotus actor Theo James has finally admitted that he wore a prosthetic penis in his nude scene in the second season's first episode.

The British actor, 37, sent fans wild when he appeared fully nude in the premiere in a scene alongside Aubrey Plaza.

But he has now revealed all… by admitting that he didn't reveal all in the scene.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Theo explained that producers told him that he would be wearing a prosthetic rather than showing his real manhood.

Referring to it as the "pee-pee scene", the Hollywood hunk said: "The truth of it was, you go into these things and you have a conversation with the director and the producers, and they go, 'OK, for this, we’re going to use a prosthetic, we’re gonna use something.'

"It’s a pee-pee prosthetic."

Host Jimmy said that Theo's admission would "make so many men feel good".

Theo, who previously starred in the Divergent film series, said that he told the makeup artist he didn't want the prosthetic to be "distracting" as the scene wasn't about the "pee-pee".

However when he turned up on set, he was surprised to see a fake penis that resembled a "hammer" waiting for him to slip on.

He was even more surprised when he and the show's creator Mike White were told that the prosthetic counted as "average".

Theo finished by saying he didn't take the prosthetic home, meaning that part of television history is probably locked in a cupboard somewhere away from excitable fans.

The prosthetic admission comes after Theo previously failed to confirm or deny whether the penis seen in the shot was real.

He told Entertainment Tonight instead that "the initial version [of the scene] we shot was way too much", adding: "We did a more subtle version. They toned it [down]."

In the show, which revolved around a luxury resort in Sicily in its second season, Theo plays "wildly successful businessman" Cameron.

He stars alongside Aubrey Plaza as Harper Spiller, Meghann Fahy as Cameron's wife Daphne, and Will Sharpe, who plays his college roommate Ethan.

Returning from the first season are Jennifer Coolidge, who played unlucky in love socialite Tanya, and Jon Gries, who plays her now-husband Greg.

The White Lotus is available to stream on Now TV in the UK
