Chace Crawford Responds to Fan Reaction to His Bulge in ‘the Boys’ Poster
The image in question showed Crawford dressed in costume as his superhero character in the show, The Deep, wearing a beyond skin-tight spandex suit, in turn, leaving little to the imagination.
"There is a story behind that but I’m sworn to secrecy by Eric Kripke," Crawford told Entertainment Weekly, referring to the co-creator of the series and showrunner. "I’m sworn to secrecy. I wish I could give you a good answer but we’ll never know. It will forever remain a mystery. We will never know!"
Crawford didn't even end up getting a copy of The Deep (Crawford's superhero character) calendar for himself, though he laughed off the entire situation. "I thought it was so funny, but I don’t think anyone got a bigger kick out of it than Eric Kripke,” he revealed.
"He thought it was the funniest thing in the world. Oh, God. It was probably a little bit overcovered but I was like, ‘Whatever The Deep can do for you guys to get some press, you know I’m ready to support the show!’ That was one I had to explain to a few people. I got a lot of weird DMs in my inbox," he joked.
The Boys is available to stream on Amazon Prime, now.
