Ryan Phillippe Reveals His Butt Scene In ‘Cruel Intentions’ Made People Realize They Were Gay

Before Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, there was Cruel Intentions. To commemorate the 20th anniversary theatrical release, the cast and filmmakers revisited the seductive teen classic to spill some tea to Entertainment Weekly.

By far, the best revelation came from Ryan Phillippe. The 44-year-old actor talked about his delicious nude scene where he flashed his perky 20-something cakes for the world to see. Naturally, this visual was an awakening for closeted gay boys everywhere.

“I felt okay with [showing] my butt. Everybody has a butt, it’s really not that graphic. [Laughs] So many guys on Twitter are like, “That’s the moment I knew I was gay,” and there have been guys like, “I behaved like Sebastian to get laid!” [Laughs] Which I never did,” Phillippe dishes.

Definitely remember enjoying that scene when I watched it for the first time in the theater. For me though, watching him in I Know What You Did Last Summer was more of a “turning point” 😉

Joshua Jackson, who played the gay character Blaine Tuttle, also talked about his experience.

“The vibe on set was playful, and that was nice because my first day was doing this scene where I’m giving a bl– job. That was diving into the deep end. [Laughs] But I was more concerned with making my character real. You didn’t see a lot of gay characters, period. But [especially] gay characters that weren’t caricatures, so I wanted to make sure that, even with dialogue that was beautifully over-the-top, he still felt like a real person,” he said.
