The full-frontal pic, featuring Jamie snapping himself in the mirror, attracted significant attention not only because it featured the star in the nude, but also because it revealed him to be rather, uh, well-endowed.
Jamie's anatomy became so legendary, in fact, that when he confirmed to talk show host Conan O' Brien that it was indeed him in the photos, Conan shook his hand before he could explain how the photo go out.
Jamie then explained that he took the photo a few years ago while working on movie Miami Vice. The pic was then sent to his make-up artist for a before-and-after comparison of his physical training as Jamie was preparing for a nude scene.
The rest is internet hacker history!
“In transferring that material, I guess these people hang out on the internet and grabbed the picture and put it out on the internet," Jamie said, also admitting the scandal has made him more popular among his female and gay fanbase.
