It may have been a normal day at the gym for the This Is Us actor, but when he was snapped by the paparazzi in the shorts, it caused a frenzy.

Looking back on the moment, Milo admits he did have a particularly good leg day but had no idea the photos would cause as much commotion as they did.

"So, when I work out, I'm with my trainer Jason Walsh, and we're just you know, kind of meatheads, throwing around a lot of weight. And when I work out, I kind of pull my shorts up," Milo explained.

He continued, "So, when I left the gym and the photograph got taken, and then it went bananas — it went crazy. Literally crazy. Like broke the internet crazy."

He went on to recount the surprising reaction and how he feels about the whole thing now.

"They're like, 'Oh my god, Milo wears short shorts; it's the summer of short shorts.' There's all these articles about Milo and his short shorts," Milo recalled.

He added, "I'm just like, guys, they were actually really normal length. I just have kind of meaty thighs, and I pulled them up and I walked out, and they stuck."
