“Wonder Woman” is scheduled to hit theatres next week, and we’re excited to see the Amazonian heroin kick some ass in her first solo outing.
But there’s also something else to look forward to: an almost naked Chris Pine as the dashing Steve Trevor. Yep, there is a memorable “Amazon pool” scene with the actor in all his glory that was deliberately included in the movie.
When asked if he was nervous about shooting the aforementioned scene, the 36-year-old actor told E! News, “You f**king bet it does, man. I was excited. I was like, ‘All right, man. Now the gauntlet is thrown. I’ve got something to prep for’.” Pine also shared with Entertainment Tonight that there was “a lot of sock stuffing” to ensure he looked “as fit as a fiddle”.
“It was fun to be objectified for a day. I was thinking this happens to women so, so much, it’s about time,” the Hollywood hunk was quoted as saying. “While that was fun, I think it’s the most compassionate I’ve felt toward women on what they may feel being sidelined or made to feel less important.”
The actor also pointed out that women are often objectified, especially in the entertainment industry. “But it’s funny to ask someone like me because I’m a man. And I get it. I don’t take any umbrage to it at all. I do now have a great amount of compassion for women,” Pine added.
In “Wonder Woman”, Diana Prince falls for the confident Steve Trevor when they meet at the beginning of World War I. Just like in the comics, Steve Trevor is a WWII pilot in the US Army Air Corps. After being stranded on the Amazonian’s homeland of Themyscira, he then develops a relationship with the female superhero.
