“It has to be ‘Normal Joe.’ Because the scene isn’t about peeing; It’s about power play and sex. It’s about whether he did it on purpose or whether it was an accident and what that means. She says: “I have you. yes i have you Normal Joe.’” James continued.

To James’ surprise, “Normal Joe” wasn’t what he received.

According to the British actor, upon arrival on set, Hickey approached him with a fake penis so outrageously large it looked like she had “a hammer.”

“I mean, it’s bigger than that. It’s like she stole it from a donkey in the field. The thing is gigantic. And me and the director, Mike White, are sitting there and we’re like, ‘That’s… average, isn’t it?'” he joked.

James then joked that both he and White immediately ran off to call their “respective partners” and apologize profusely, like “I’m so sorry.”

“It was nine inches flat and about four inches wide. We were like, ‘What the hell is this?’” he added, laughing.

Speak with entertainment tonight In October, James shared that going in front of the camera shirtless for the scene in the Primetime Emmy-winning series “felt natural”.

He jokingly added: “It’s in my contract that I can’t do anything unless I’m completely naked.”

Just a month later, James told the outlet that the audience didn’t get a chance to see the original scene they planned because it was “way too much,” so they “tinted it.” [down].”

“The original derivation of that is kind of frontal, if you get my meaning. We shot that and it felt too much, too aggressive,” he told Entertainment Weekly in November. “What we’ve achieved is a little more obscure, and that’s what Mike does so well. You’re never 100% sure of the characters’ intentions.”

The White Lotus airs new episodes Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on HBO and HBO Max.
