You were surprised at Oscar Isaac’s nude scene “Scenes of a Marriage”. This is not the first time.

HBO’s five-part limited series, which tells the story of troubled spouses (Isaac and Jessica Chastain), aired its finale Sunday. But the fourth episode includes a scene of the “Dune” actor appearing fully nude – a moment that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

When asked about the public reaction, Isaac admitted he was shocked that the scene aired during his appearance on “The View” Friday.

Isaac stated, “I was shocked because I didn’t know that would happen.” The stuff is sent to you to make sure that you are happy with it. However, I was looking at it from a dark laptop and didn’t realize what was happening. It was a surprise when I started seeing all these things like, ‘It’s full frontal’ – I was like, ‘No, what are you talking about?’ It was there.

Chastain, Chastain’s longtime friend and star of the movie, made this famous scene possible.

Hagai Levi, the writer and director of the series, said she was comfortable saying to her, “I say to Hagai, that I’m okay with all the nudity. But any part in my body you show, it’s going to be the same as Oscar,”” she replied.

So there is a scene in the shower that I had in Episode 2. And you can see my entire body. Now you can see his body. It was important to me that it be balanced.”

Isaac has been in the news before. Fans lost it last month when Isaac smooched the inside of Chastain’s arm at the Venice Film Festival, an intimate moment captured in a sexy, slow-motion clip.

Although they denied speculation about a more heated relationship (Chastain is married to fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, and Isaac to screenwriter Elvira Lind), the two spoke to USA TODAY in September about relying on their longtime friendship while filming together.

The couple’s long friendship, spanning back to drama school at Manhattan’s Juilliard School (Chastain graduated in 2003; Isaac in 2005) had intrigued “Scenes” director and co-screenwriter Hagai Levi for his modern adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s acclaimed 1973 Swedish miniseries.

Jessica Chastain and US actor Oscar Isaac arrive for the screening of the film "Scenes from a Marriage" presented out of competition on September 4, 2021 during the 78th Venice Film Festival at Venice Lido.

“There’s not a lot of energy trying to get to know each other, trying to feel each other out,” Isaac said at the time. We could jump in, be bold.

Chastain said, “I knew it was possible for the performance to happen if I just stayed present and watched Oscar,” Chastain stated. I didn’t have to push for anything.
