Who’s Butthole Was That in The Boys?


Look, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t already know The Boys is full of NSFW moments. Season four is no exception, but there’s one moment in particular that has fans swarming Reddit for answers. Just who’s butthole was that??

For context, this all goes down in episode one. Billy Butcher (played by Karl Urban) is texting the Vice Presidential candidate, Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit). She asks to see all the files Hughie was using to blackmail her, promising in return to get Ryan away from Homelander so Butcher could save him and fulfill his promise to his late wife Becca. Turns out, Billy’s loyalty is still to The Boys, and his explicit text is proof of that (it was so explicit that it was actually censored in several countries along with the sauna scene).

Who’s butthole was it?

Sorry to disappoint, it wasn’t Karl Urban’s. The story about whose butthole it actually was is perhaps funnier, though. “Because hundreds of you asked: the butthole from #TheBoys Season 4, Ep 1 is NOT Butcher’s (or Karl’s),” showrunner Eric Kripke tweeted. “We hired a model (I don’t know his name). I chose the pic, based on about 20 different butthole shots. Yep, Hollywood is a glamorous dream factory.”

Kripke also explained that Doumit’s reaction was genuine because she had no idea it was coming. “When Claudia was shooting it, for all the wide angles, it’s a blue screen. You can’t see what’s on the phone, so she’s reacting to a blue screen,” Kripke told Collider.

“And then, when we moved in for closeup method acting style, we put the real butt on the phone, so her reaction is her real reaction to seeing that butt. I don’t know if we should feel good about that or horrible, but that’s how we got a real reaction from Claudia.”

Before Kripke addressed the speculation, Reddit was full of theories. “Did butcher take a picture of his own hairy asshole or did he google “hairy asshole” and spend some time scrolling to find a good one to send?” wrote one fan.

“For some reason I find it funnier to imagine butcher googling pictures of hairy assholes than him actually bending over and setting up the camera to take a picture of his own asshole. [sic]” Another added: “The lighting in the picture wouldn’t make much sense for this. It makes way more sense that it’s not his own but people will prefer to believe it’s his because funny. [sic]”
