NEW Interview: Jared Padalecki

Jared Padalecki has been around for a couple years now, finally breaking through and scoring his first leading role in FRIDAY THE 13TH. Some may know him from his starring roles in GILMORE GIRLS and the popular genre show SUPERNATURAL. He's also got a couple genre movie credits to his name in HOUSE OF WAX, so as you can see he's definitely a fan of the genre. JoBlo.com caught up with the young actor while on the set of FRIDAY THE 13TH.

JoBlo.com: They tell us that as much of the violence is in this movie there's also sex. Do we get to see you topless?

Jared Padalecki: (laughs) Not yet! If there are reshoots who knows they might try and yank off my shirt.

JoBlo.com: And it's only fair to ask.

Jared Padalecki: It's absolutely fair to ask. That was also something that I brought up with the writers and producers and the director because I'm wearing like a form fitting shirt and I was like 'Listen guys... I'm already on the CW, which is kind of like the pretty boy network. The last thing I want to do is do this movie with a lot of fans and just be like 'Hey, here's me taking my shirt off.' And like be kind of douchebaggy. I was like honestly, I wanted Clay to just be a normal guy. I didn't want him to be like 'Hey, here I am. I'm a sex symbol. Watch me fight Jason. I'm cool. I'm a ninja. Blah blah.' I just wanted to be a guy trying to find his sister. Not about how he looked, whether he worked out or whatever. So I steered clear of the topless scenes.
