EXCLUSIVE: Logan Lerman On Donning Rocky Horror’s Iconic Golden Thong In ‘Perks Of Being A Wallflower’
Logan Lerman, 20, the young star of The Three Musketeers and 3:10 to Yuma, now appears as main character Charlie in the Stephen Chbosky-directed The Perks of Being a Wallflower, also starring Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh, Ezra Miller, Paul Rudd and Emma Watson.
But it wasn’t his work with Watson or Chbosky that particularly stood out for Lerman during the filming of Perks of Being a Wallflower. Instead, it was a highly uncomfortable scene in which he had to wear a gold thong due to portraying Rocky from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with which the young characters are obsessed.
“That was uncomfortable,” Lerman told Uinterview exclusively. “It was one of those moments you just try not to think about before you do it, and you try to forget it really quickly afterwards. I was really nervous to see the film and check that scene out,” he added. “But I saw the film recently, and I was dreading seeing that sequence, and I was really surprised. They had a lot more footage than what was shown in the film, and they were really nice to kind of condense it into clips that would be suitable for, like, clips for a PG-13 film. So that was nice.”
