Handsome Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd is happy and prepared to strip naked for a movie role.

The KING ARTHUR star, 30, has already posed nude in 1997 movie WILDE - in which he played the gay lover of STEPHEN FRY'S OSCAR WILDE - and he is more than happy to do it again.

Gruffudd says of love scenes with Fry, "I approached it just as I would a love scene involving myself and a woman.

"And the advantage of being nude is that you're not having to worry about how your clothes look."
