Personal Quote:

Male nudity, full-frontal nudity, has always been considered a lot more taboo than female nudity. As far back as I can remember, there's been a double standard between men and women. I think it's time that men get equal time in terms of nudity.

Trivia:

His 3,000-sq.-foot, 3-bedroom condo in Manhattan overlooking the park at One Central Park West is on sale for $15 million (Sept. 2012). Star said he lives and works mostly in Los Angeles and hasn't had enough time to enjoy the apt. See more »
