Quite literally, in his case. It was cold in there.
Asked in a new interview with Men's Health about the nude photos taken of him by photographer Greg Gorman in 2000, "To me, it's funny at this point. Whatever. It's done," Josh Duhamel says. "It was very cold in the studio, by the way."
Duhamel, who last week said aloud what many have been thinking (that Perez Hilton deserved to get punched by Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina), claims that his friends were skeptical of him going on the cover of Men's Health.
"You're going to be in Men's Health?," he recalls them saying. "You?"
The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star tells the fitness magazine that he wants to be remembered for his talent, not just his rugged good looks.
The actor also talked up married life – he tied to the knot with Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas in January – even if it means having to dodge press.
The 36-year-old also wants to start a family soon.
"I want to do good work, but having kids and a quality life outside of that is important," Duhamel tells the magazine. "If you don't have anybody around who loves you, then what's it all for? You're just lonely in the end."
