Last April, the actor was photographed leaving the gym exposing his muscular legs in rolled up shorts and eventually circulated on the internet.

“I swear to God this is just a guy leaving the gym,” said Ventimiglia, during an appearance on “The Talk” when he was asked about the photos that went viral.

The actor explained that there was a reason why his shorts were rolled up.

I wasn’t even thinking about it. The shorts are normal length, but when I work out I kind of fold them up just so I can work a little harder.

It’s even a joke around some of my friends that are inside the gym when I’m there. We all know one another – you know, get under a bar or get on a machine or something and my shorts get hiked up really high, then everyone kind of hoots and hollers.

Ventimiglia was surprised that people were so interested in his gym attire, but clearly showed he has a sense of humor about the situation.

“I was literally just a guy leaving the gym and had no idea, so whatever anybody got excited about or GQ calling it ‘short short summer,’ I’m excited about,” the actor said. “Whatever you want to do, that’s cool. I wasn’t expecting it.”


On the other hand, Ventimiglia also spoke regarding the announcement last week that “This Is Us” will end after its sixth season. “We kind of knew going into early on that of course there was going to be ending at some point. The fact we are kind of faced with it now, at this point, it is kind of real. If anything, it makes me at least lean in a little bit more to the making of the show,” he said, adding that NBC drama was a “great thing to be a part of.”
