Braden Fraser is revealing all the steamy secrets! The actor went on to recall filming a shower scene with Matt Damon for their 1992 film School Ties, saying that both the actors were fully nude. During his appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Stern asked the actor about the logistics of filming the scene, in which Damon’s character, Charlie, goads his character David into fighting in the shower by making an anti-semitic joke in front of the Jewish David. 

“Were you guys fully nude in that scene?” Stern asked.

“Oh yeah. Absolutely,” the star replied. “It was scary. It’s scary to do that, and when you’re an actor and starting off, and you’re ambitious and game for pretty much anything, they say jump and you say how high.”

The Whale actor went on to tell Stern that the meaning of the scene wasn’t lost on him. “At the same time, I appreciated that this isn’t really for wow or a scintillating factor of going, ‘Hey, look at that. Naked people,'” Fraser stated. “The point of it was that when Damon’s character says what he says about David, he just reveals who he is. His anti-Semitism and his prejudice is stripped down naked and it’s ugly.”

“And the door is locked and they fight over it like shaved apes that need to be pulled apart because they’ve run out of things to say to one another, and it just turns into an ugly knuckle-dusting fit,” Fraser continued.

The film was officially released in 1992 and follows David (Fraser),  a Jewish student who is struggling to find acceptance at an elite predominantly Christian Prep school. The film also stars Damon, Ben Affleck and Chris O’Donnell.

Fraser has been having quite a good year after recently being nominated for an Oscar for his work in The Whale.
