Butt seriously, folks.

As Jimmy on Shameless, which is now in its third season on Showtime, Justin Chatwin tweets a lot about shooting his many nude scenes. Is that his cheeky way of playing it cool about doing onscreen nudity?

"That, and I get a lot of Twitter comments on my ass," he tells Vulture. "From the straight community and the gay community. Does your ass have its own IMDb page? I think your ass did a great job in the scene last night. I think your ass should win an Emmy. Nothing about me. Nothing about my performance."

The 30-year-old actor — who played gay in the pilot and series finale of Weeds — went into further detail about his gay-friendly backside with Divine Caroline: "When I was a kid, my nickname was 'Bubble Butt.' I had this big giant ass because I was a snowboarder and I did a lot of things with my legs. I played hockey. My upper body grew later. I grew up with so much shame around my body, especially my butt, so for me doing this role and being naked in front of television was really terrifying for me at first. It eventually led to a very liberating experience for me."

Let's support Chatwin's shameless and liberated butt with these gifs of his memorable thong scene from last season:
