We recently asked the actor to revisit his famous scene and its aftermath, and the result is pretty steamy. Were you self-conscious during the filming of the shower scene? Freaking out. Dying inside. I literally took a shower the way I take a shower.
Gilles marini sex and the city shower scene video.
French model-actor Gilles Marini is shown in this undated publicity photograph from the film "Sex and the City. I have never done so much press in my life or received so many emails. Since the world premiere in London four weeks ago, Marini said he had received over 17, hits on his MySpace page and job offers have been rolling in but he is taking his time before deciding on his next move. To handle the attention, Marini has taken on a publicist who is getting word out on the relatively unknown star. Marini, who has a Greek mother and Italian father, has worked as a model for years, most notably as a runway model for Georgio Armani in Milan. Marini, who has been married for 10 years and has a 9-year-old son George and one-year-old daughter Juliana, said he had no hesitation in stripping for the movie. Marini said he takes care to keep in shape, eating few foods high in carbohydrates and working out at least 40 minutes a day.
HE has been lusted after by millions of women all over the world - but even they won't recognise his face or his name. Now French actor Gilles Marini - who entranced Kim Cattrall and moviegoers with his nude shower scenes in Sex And The City - is stepping out of the soap suds and into the spotlight. Gilles, 33, became an overnight sensation thanks to his turn as Dante, Samantha's free-spirited and well-endowed neighbour. And since his sexy cameo in the girlie blockbuster, he has won a string of hot roles that have put him on his way to becoming one of the best-known telly actors in Hollywood. And the former model from the Cote D'Azur said that while he owes his success to his big strip, he hopes he can now win as many fans with his clothes on as with his nudity.
However, his new desires may end up taking him behind the camera next. He lives with his wife Carole and their two children, George and Juliana, in California. After graduating high school, Gilles joined the French army and moved to Paris. Marini was born on January 26th, , in Grasse of France to an Italian father and a Greek mother with origins in Athens. SF recognizes and admires France as the birthplace of haute couture, fine art and architecture, and gourmet cuisine.
