Penn Badgley revealed his comment is blown out of proportion

The 36-year-old told the outlet that his comment on the scene was blown out of proportion. Moreover, he is “all too aware of how the internet takes things out of context.”

The actor said, “What I was speaking about wasn’t actually the final product. It was sort of like the culture inherent to the production of all movies, but particularly those scenes. It’s like, look, we know that Hollywood has had a history of flagrant exploitation and abuse.”

Later on, he said,”I was nervous to even have that conversation. It was not easy. It was easy because of Sera’s response, and I felt relieved. But technically speaking, if I thought I’d had the ability to set that boundary earlier, I would have,”

Moreover, he also talked about labeling himself as a =n actor who doesn’t want to do sex scenes. He said, “We shall see if setting that boundary, of course, has any ramifications.”

Badgley added, “It didn’t change the trajectory of the season at all. I mean, Joe was naturally ready to not be in that position anymore.”

The actor said on the podcast, “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 the romantic lead?'”
