If you don't think Chris Pine is the best Hollywood Chris, then hopefully this truly delightful video featuring the Outlaw King actor discussing his much-buzzed-about nude scene in the upcoming historical drama will convince you. If it doesn't, I reserve the right to classify you as a sociopath from this point on. But I digress!

While sitting down with BBC Radio 1 film critic Ali Plumb for a discussion about the movies that "made" him — Star Trek, Wonder Woman, Just My Luck (just kidding about the last one, sadly) — the topic of Pine's brief, albeit very memorable, nude scene in the film inevitably came up. Apparently, Pine doesn't really understand the buzz his full-frontal appearance is generating, which will likely have the unintentional effect of making you fall even more in love with him, fair warning.

"A lot has been made about me being nude, and quite honestly, I'm only naked for . . . it's, uh, no Fassbender situation," he explained, making reference to Michael Fassbender's graphic nude scene in Steve McQueen's 2011 drama Shame. Despite Pine's protests that the real attention should be paid to the "animal" nature of his character, real-life Scottish king and rebel hero Robert the Bruce, the 38-year-old couldn't let the opportunity go by without mentioning that his penis is totally up to par with Fassbender's, in case anyone was wondering. "I mean, I'd certainly match him," he said.

Well, this settles it: this is the greatest Chris Pine moment since he rolled up to Comic-Con dressed as an off-brand tub of rainbow sherbet. All hail the Best Hollywood Chris!
