Nick Jonas: “Sex Is Part Of Who You Are”
Nick Jonas opens up about sex in the December issue of the British gay lifestyle magazine, Attitude. The actor, who plays a ripped MMA fighter in “Kingdom,” recently filmed an explicit sex scene for the DirecTV drama that shocked many of his fans when it went viral. Now he tells the magazine, “Sex is such an important part of a healthy life, in the sense that it’s such an intrinsic part of who you are.” Adds Jonas, who’s dating former Miss USA Olivia Culpo, “When your sex life is not healthy you resort to other things as an outlet. And in terms of the show, that’s tough to watch.”
In the Attitude cover story, Jonas also reveals why he thinks he didn’t turn out like Justin Bieber. He says, “I think it’s a combination of a few things; the first being that I always felt really fortunate being in the position I was in. I was still growing as an artist as I was getting popularity and success so I took it more as, you know, I’m really lucky to be here and I want to learn as much as possible, and just be really grateful for it.” Jonas continues, “And I did it with my family and had that sort of care and support throughout the whole process. But there are moments when you’re like, ‘I’m definitely going to lose my mind,’ that it’s all too much.”
The singer and actor, who recently did a video tutorial on how to do the perfect “crotch grab,” took to Twitter on Friday to share the cover of Attitude, and wrote, “Thanks to @attitudemag for having me on the cover!” And we suspect a lot of people will be thanking Jonas, who’s pictured on the cover with his chiseled arms popping out of a cut-off T-shirt.
