You can thank Miley Cyrus for this one. Milo Ventimiglia headed on ‘Ellen’ for the Oct. 3 episode to promote ‘This Is Us,’ and after talking about showing his butt on the premiere of the show, he showed his top half for a little splash tank action! Watch the video here.
Miley Cyrus is used to showing her butt — that was the joke made to Milo Ventimiglia when he stopped by Ellen, while she was guest hosting. Naturally they talked about that opening scene, and Miley said that usually it’s her career where the butt is the focus, but this time around it was his. Yes, it was one of the first things shown in the This is Us premiere — and he never thought it would air.
“To be honest, I was like, it’s NBC, they’re not going to show anything,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m probably going to have some kind of nude briefs on, and they’ll shoot it in a way that skirts around and implies that I’m naked.” Then, he recalled, he arrived on set and they handed him his wardrobe — “varying sizes of nude-colored cloth and tape.”
“I was like, ‘Okay, so I guess that’s what they want to do? So sure, no problem, great, I’m cool with it,” he told EW. “I’ve got a great trainer who does well for me… I think my ass was prepared.” Well, we’d have to say his chest was also prepared. After the interview with Miley, Milo headed into the Ulta splash tank — it’s like a dunk tank, but water pours on you instead of you getting dunked in it — while she threw. If she hit, that meant $10,000 would get donated to breast cancer research. And yes, she dunked him and it was beautiful.
