Penn Badgley revealed he refused to do intimate scenes in the new season of the popular Netflix series ‘You.’ The actor portrays the role of Joe Goldberg in the Netflix series. In his recent appearance on the Podcrushed podcast, he opened up about the facts. Badgley requested the makers to limit his bold scenes in the show.

Penn Badgley did not limit himself only to a romantic lead

The 36-year-old said, “I asked Sera Gamble, creator of the show, ‘Can I just do no more intimacy scenes?’ This is actually a decision I had made before I took the show. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it publicly. but it’s one of the main things is, like, ‘Do I want to put myself back on a career path where I’m just always romantic lead?'”

Moreover, the actor shared his thoughts on the importance of loyalty in every relationship. As he added, “Fidelity in every relationship — and especially in my marriage — is important to me. I said to Sera, like, ‘My desire would be zero, to go from 100 to zero,'”

Later on, he added, “I signed this contract. I signed up for this show. I know what I did. You know, you can’t take this aspect out of the DNA of the concept, so, ‘How much less can you make it?’ was my question to them.”

According to Penn, Sera is really supportive of him. She said, ” She didn’t even bat an eye. She was really glad that I was that honest, and she was sort of I want to say almost, like, empowered. She had a really positive response. She appreciated my directness and she appreciated that I was also being reasonable and practical and they came back with a phenomenal reduction.”
