Actor Chace Crawford Finally Opens Up About Eye-Popping Pic in 'The Boys' Calendar

Monday October 7, 2019

Actor Chace Crawford is finally discussing an eye-popping bulge photo that appeared in a promotional calendar for the Amazon series "The Boys" that went viral.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Crawford said he knows "the story behind" the now infamous-bulge photo but said "The Boys" creator Eric Kripke has him "sworn to secrecy."

"I wish I could give you a good answer but we'll never know. It will forever remain a mystery," the 34-year-old actor added. "We will never know! Oh my God!

"I thought it was so funny, but I don't think anyone got a bigger kick out of it than Eric Kripke," he told EW. "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. A lot of love, a lot of love!"

In the series, Crawford plays the superhero The Deep. Amazon sent to press a promotional 2020 calendar for "The Boys," which features the actors in their superhero getup for each month, with the "Gossip Girl" landing in March. In the pic, he's seen wearing a skin-tight green and brown Spandex bodysuit as he's jumping out of the water and surrounded by dolphins. It didn't take long before Twitter noticed his bulge.

Crawford told EW that he wasn't even sent a copy of the calendar and didn't think anything of the photoshoot.

"I remember late in the season last year, we were doing a big Amazon promotional shoot," he said. "We were all there on set doing group shots. They pulled me over to a green screen and told me, 'We're doing calendars.' I'm thinking, okay, everyone's got a calendar. That's great! But no. It was just me!

"They had this prop jar and I was just grabbing props and doing silly stuff, like holding a rose and turning over my shoulder," he added. "I knew it was going to be ridiculous but I got the calendar fake-out. I really thought it was the whole crew, the whole team! Thanks, guys! And when I was at Comic-Con they just had like 40 of them. I was like, 'Okay, no one's ever going to really see these.' Little did I know... yeah. Yup."
