Sterling K. Brown is no stranger to magazine covers however his latest feature with Playboy has taken fans by surprise. The ‘This Is Us’ star shared some of the photos to his Instagram page.

According to the 43-year-old, over 1-million Google searches have been made for “Sterling K. Brown shirtless” and this was his answer to all the inquiring minds.

The spread is accompanied by an interview where Brown explained that black men are often sexualized and not equally celebrated for their talents as they are physique.

“I’m sneaky fit…I’m not popping out of my clothes per se, but if I ever take my shirt off, you’d be like, ‘Oh snap, I didn’t see that one coming.’ I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a job because of the way I was built. People have seen me as being a good actor, and they hire me for things in which they need a good actor”

He added:

“It’s a slippery slope, and it’s one that is dangerous – [but] it’s nice to have your sexuality celebrated, as long as you’re being celebrated in total, as a whole human being and not fetishized as one particular thing.”

The feature is part of Playboy’s Winter 2020 edition, which is all about inclusion.
