Though you wouldn’t know it from his egotistical, self-absorbed character Steve Stifler in the American Pie franchise, Seann William Scott is plagued by insecurities just like the rest of us. The 35-year-old star made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 2 and admitted to being highly insecure about his backside, which just so happens (Spoiler Alert!) to be featured in American Reunion. In fact, he was so unhappy with his derriere that he’d even considered hiring a butt double. But alas, it wasn’t in the budget.
“There’s some hijinks with Stiffler and you see my bum,” the actor explained. And I was a little bit like, ‘Wow, I’ve done a lot of weird things in movies so I didn’t think this would be a problem.’” But Scott is not without a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. “My butt was so white that it would glow in the dark during the day,” he said.
Of course, Kimmel prodded his visitor, asking if he’d ever considered hiring a butt double, to which Scott responded, “I seriously did….we didn’t have it in our budget.” Luckily though, Scott was able to put his fears behind him and show fans a side of him that they’ll never soon forget.
