The 2002 zombie film quickly achieved status as a beloved horror classic, yet one particular scene captured the attention of viewers—a pivotal moment involving actor Cillian Murphy. In this scene, Murphy's character awakens completely unclothed in a hospital bed during the chaos of a zombie outbreak. While Murphy has not openly discussed his thoughts on his scene in 28 Days Later, he later expressed a reluctance to address it during interviews, a sentiment he maintained even after performing similar scenes in the television series Peaky Blinders.

Ewan McGregor is known for slapping off his clothes every chance he gets in a film, most notable he bares all in Trainspotting, where he plays a heroin addict struggling to stay clean, and Velvet Goldmine, where he takes on the role of an unbridled rock star who does whatever he wants. In both films he throws his pants off with reckless abandon. Clearly he's not worried about what people think.
