Jackass stars blow up closet, smack each other with the shards

by Jeremy Hooper

Jackass-UnderwearJackass stars Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O talk to Vanity Fair about where exactly their franchise falls on the Kinsey scale:

Vanity Fair (Eric Spitznagel): So listen, I’m not sure how to broach this subject. There’s a lot of half-naked men in Jackass, and a lot of anal play and nipple torture and testicle touching. Is it possible that Jackass is at least a smidge gay?

Knoxville: I’m offended you just said a smidge!

VF: It’s more than a smidge?

Knoxville: We’re over here sitting on rainbows and you say a smidge.

VF: You’re a gay pride parade waiting to happen?

Knoxville: We’re a gay pride parade that’s happening! And in 3-D!

VF: It’s not just homoerotic tension?

Knoxville: No, man, it’s all about release with us.

Steve-O: We always thought it was funny to force a heterosexual MTV generation to deal with all of our thongs and homoerotic humor. In many ways, all our gay humor has been a humanitarian attack against homophobia. We’ve been trying to rid the world of homophobia for years, and I think gay people really dig it too.

A humanitarian attack against homophobia. And testicles.
