Asking his parents' opinion before he films the scene, Hunter Parrish is glad his mother and father are very supportive of him.
"Weeds" star Hunter Parrish opens up in an interview featured in the August issue of GQ magazine about him showing off his naked bottoms on the hit TV series. He says he needs to ask his parents' opinion before deciding to do the particular scene.

I called my parents and I was like, 'Are you guys going to disown me if I do this?'," he recalls. Though so, he is quick to add that his parents' opinion isn't the one and only deciding factor, claiming "I don't make all my decisions by them but it was nice to hear that they were supportive and clued-in."

In further interview with GQ, Hunter addresses on such issues as report of him being offered the Zac Efron part in "High School Musical" films and starring alongside his idol Alanis Morissette in the new season of "Weeds."
