Normal People star Paul Mescal has admitted to feeling "objectified" following the release of the show earlier this year.
The 24-year-old gained overnight fame and a legion of thirsty followers around the world for his role as brooding Irish youngster Connell in the acclaimed 12-part drama.
Mescal had numerous nude scenes in the show - including full-frontal shots - while his character's necklace has become a viral sensation on Instagram.
Talking to Elle, he revealed: "I felt objectified after Normal People. It's to be expected, given the intimacy of my scenes, but it doesn't make it easier.
"I daren't read some of the intense DMs I receive. But it's not enough to put me off the industry."
Mescal has been nominated for an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Connell.
