Rainn Wilson naked. A sex symbol? Sort of.

He thinks he is — sort of.

One day after baring his not-so-buff bod at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles (that’s him and his teddy in the picture at right), Wilson talked to reporters about his new movie, “The Rocker,” which is slated for an August release. Wilson portrays a former drummer for a 1980s metal band who lands a gig playing for a teenage garage band. And in one scene of his band’s rehearsal, Wilson shows off his naked butt.

“My body has been making women laugh for the last 20 years and I’m happy to continue to oblige,” he joked.
