  • Lucy Lawless dishes on her merkin, nude scenes in 'Spartacus'


    Lucy Lawless is best known for role role as Xena in “Xena: Warrior Princess,” but fans are seeing a whole lot more of her in her new series ‘Spartacus.’

    Lawless has shot several nude sex scenes for the Starz show, with both men and women.

    And apparently, both the male and female actors on the show have prosthetic sex parts available, should they want or need them!

    “I think everyone’s got [a merkin] just for fun,” she told “Mine, I haven’t had to break it out yet. Though [laughs] next season, maybe! Yeah, wait for it!”

    (A merkin is a pubic wig, FYI.)

    SLIDESHOW: Lawless Lovelies. (‘Lawless’ – get it?)

    And for the guys? Prosthetic privates!

    “A couple are stapled to the wall,” Lawless said. “I’m not sure if they’ve used them yet. Nobody’s telling!”

    While reknowned for her buff bod on Xena, Lawless said she’s been able to be more natural on “Spartacus.”

    “My character is not supposed to be ripped. She’s a woman. It’s Ancient Rome. It’s not like they were popping off to the gym every two seconds, but they were very image conscious, that’s for sure.”
