A representative for the 'True Blood' star is quick to come out with a denial after a low-resolution shot of the actor with his pants down leaked out.
Ryan Kwanten has been hit with a false naked photo scandal. A low-resolution shot of the "True Blood" star leaked out on Monday, August 1, and it gives a look at the 34-year-old Aussie actor exposing his private part by pulling down his pants.
While Ryan often went shirtless while portraying Jason Stackhouse on the hit HBO series, his representative was quick to disassociate him from the alleged nude picture. To Us Weekly, the rep simply clarified that the scandalous image is fake.
Ryan has previously given advice to actors who are preparing to take on nude scenes. Sharing his tips to PEOPLE back in 2010, he said that they need "to tie the 'modesty sock' on really tight, because you don't want that thing coming off, because there will be evidence of that forever."
The former "Home and Away" star is the latest celebrity who falls victim to the nude picture scandal. In late May, Blake Lively was forced to come out with a threat to sue after photos of a blond girl who looks like her standing naked in front of a mirror in the bathroom spread across the web.
