Now that his purity ring has been wriggled off of his finger, Nick Jonas is free to do whatever he wants. And yes, that includes sex.
The former boy band member was once a proponent for abstinence, along with his brothers Kevin and Joe. But on Wednesday morning, the 22-year-old was asked by Wendy Williams if he was still a virgin.
“Am I still a virgin? No,” Jonas told the talk show host. “I’m an adult in all ways. I’m comfortable with who I am.”
So comfortable, in fact, that Jonas has been featured in several recent photo shoots wearing next to nothing. A spread he did for Flaunt magazine showed the actor in a tight pair of boxer briefs with his hand grabbing his crotch, reminiscent of a similar photo shoot Mark Wahlberg did in the early 90s.
“I got into fitness last year,” Jonas said with a blown-up picture of him in his underwear behind him. Landing a leading role on his television series “Kingdom” kicked his workouts into overdrive, though.
“It’s a very intense show,” he said. “I play a fighter, basically, dealing with a lot of things in my life. As I was preparing for that role, there was the emotional aspect as well as the physical, so I gained about 15 pounds of muscle and really pushed myself to become this person.”
The spotlight seems to shine brighter on Nick now than any of the other Jonas brothers, but the youngest member of the family says they are all enjoying different tastes of success, including Kevin Jonas becoming a father and Joe Jonas working as a deejay.
“I think the good thing for all of us was once that finished, we all had a little bit of time to figure out what we wanted to do,” Jonas said about he and his boy band brothers parting ways professionally.
