There Was Some Full-Frontal Male Nudity On "Big Little Lies" And People Were Shocked

But was it real? (Spoilers!)

Posted on

HBO's latest miniseries, Big Little Lies, focuses on the lives of three suburban mothers — Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Madeline (Reese Witherspoon ), and Jane (Shailene Woodley) who live in Monterey, California.

In the latest episode, which aired on Sunday, March 26, titled "Burning Love," a scene with Celeste and her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) revealed a moment that fans weren't expecting to see.

Right before the couple were supposed to head out to a local performance of Avenue Q, Perry tried to have sex with his wife. She objected, insisting they would be late to the event. (Spoiler: There's a penis below.)

While it doesn't seem like it to the rest of their community, Celeste and Perry have an unhealthy marriage. Behind closed doors, physical abuse is masked as love and affection when the two become intimate.

People watching the show couldn't help but focus on one thing: Skarsgård's penis.

Big Little Lies shows a penis and all of the sudden we're screaming and rewinded it 3 times. Why are we this way.

Full-frontal male nudity tends to draw attention because it happens so infrequently on television.

Wow, I was not ready for Alexander Skarsgards erect penis on #BigLittleLies tonight, but the world is a better place because of it.

Much of the conversation about Perry's genitalia fell into two camps: People who were surprised by it even being shown, and people who joked about it being broken by the racket.

#BigLittleLies has gone where no TV show has gone before and has broken a penis with a tennis racket. 😂😂

Some also remarked that the penis could be fake.

Perry's penis in this week's #BigLittleLies is the most fake thing I've ever seen

As of now, we can't definitively say one way or another if it is Skarsgård's penis, but we have images we can reference.

Is that Alexander skarsgard’s real dick?

BuzzFeed News has reached out to HBO to confirm whether or not a prosthetic penis was used during the filming of this episode.
