Chris Pine is starring in the new Netflix movie Outlaw King, and fans can’t stop talking about it. Pine has a full-frontal nude scene in his latest film, and he knows that fans are tweeting about his penis because he read the tweets.
During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Pine blushed his way through a conversation about his nude scene while sitting next to legendary actress Sally Field.
“There’s a scene in the film where I bare the full Monty and, yeah, that seemed to get a lot of attention,” Pine told Norton.
I loved every moment of David Mackenzie's terrific OUTLAW KING. It's a properly big, bloody historical epic. I'd be interested to see what ended up on the cutting room floor after TIFF, because I definitely could've watched another half an hour. #LFF pic.twitter.com/NZ8HUujlH0

When Field and fellow guest Rami Malek asked Pine about what exactly the “Full Monty” entails, Pine joked, “Different strokes for different folks, as it were.” Then, as Norton read some tweets about the scene, Pine admitted that he read them all, and they were “F***in’ brutal.”
Outlaw King is a follow-up to the 1995 film Braveheart, and it picks up where the Mel Gibson classic left off. It opens with William Wallace’s defeat and Scotland’s surrender to England. And, when he decides that peace is not possible, Scottish nobleman Robert the Bruce (Pine) declares himself to be King and starts an army to fight for independence.
The movie shows Robert the Bruce and his allies as underdogs who fight to free their country from oppression, while it portrays English villain Edward II (Billy Howle) as an immature tyrant, who has an army of thugs and riot cops who brutalize Scottish civilians.
According to the Daily Dot, the screenwriters chose to skip some of Robert’s most legendary stories, like the Battle of Bannockburn and the legend of the spider in the cave. Because Scotland’s war for independence lasted for decades, the filmmakers decided to focus on Robert’s rise to power instead of the epic battles of the war. Otherwise, they would have needed to turn the movie into a miniseries.

Do they offer deep historical insight in this two-hour movie? No. However, there are beautiful, authentic costumes, a fantastic Scottish accent from Pine, and a pretty accurate timeline. It did initially receive a poor reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, so they went back and did some editing, and cut out about twenty minutes.
Starring alongside Chris Pine is Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Robert’s friend James Douglas, and Florence Pugh who plays the role of Robert’s wife, Elizabeth.
Outlaw King will be available for streaming on Netflix on November 9th.
