Fans want to know if Theo James was wearing a prosthetic penis in The White Lotus nude scene

Fans want to know if Theo James was wearing a prosthetic penis in The White Lotus nude scene

Viewers copped an eyeful when the British actor stripped off in the premiere episode.

The White Lotus is back for another season and the premiere episode has proved to be huge (if you know what I mean).

The first instalment of the second season has introduced audiences to a brand new cast, along with returning star Jennifer Coolidge, and a brand new hotel.

While there were a lot of talking points from the opening episode, there was one scene that lit up social media like nothing else.

The scene in question involves Theo James' character, Cameron Babcock, getting changed in a bathroom.

He pulls down his pants and you get to see his penis between his legs as Aubrey Plaza's character, Harper Spiller, tries not to look in the mirror.

People were fairly blown away with how big his manhood and many asked whether he was using a prosthetic or if it's the real deal.

One viewer wrote: "That was CLEARLY a prosthetic on Theo James. You need to calm down."

Another added: "Why is Theo James’ dangling participle weirdly big is it prosthetic?"

A third added: "Just saw that Theo James clip from WL and it’s def giving prosthetic."

James is no stranger to nudity as he has stripped off on shows like The Time Traveler's Wife and Sanditon, which is why everyone is asking whether this is most recent scene is real.

Speaking to ET, the British actor said: "It's interesting, [because] at first… we don't know whether it's deliberate or [if] it's accidental. But it reveals itself."

It certainly did reveal itself.

He said there will be an episode down the track that will show why the script writers included the nude scene in the opening episode.

James also joked: “It is in my contract that I’m not allowed to do anything without being completely naked. It’s funny ’cause we’re all kind of naked. It’s a holiday show, really.”

While people certainly weren't expecting to cop such an eyeful, it was going to be way more intense.

"The initial version we shot was way too much,” James revealed about episode five. “So, we did a more subtle version. They toned it [down].”

Sadly, James didn't reveal during the interview whether he was wearing a prosthetic or not.

You might have to wait until that teased fifth episode to see whether there's more than meets the eye.

The White Lotus has new episodes weekly on HBO so stay tuned.
