Nikolaj Coster Waldau Shirtless & Underwear Photos: Gay or Girlfriend? When we came across the photo below of Cameron Diaz kissing a guy we’re like, “Who’s that lucky guy kissing an A-List celebrity?” Turns out that his name is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. We soon discovered a) that he stars in one of the current TV hits, Games of Thrones (which we, sadly, still haven’t got to watching), b) that he is Danish, and c) that he is co-starring with Cameron in a romcom called The Other Woman.

Does he prefer boxers of briefs underwear? He seems to be an “equal opportunity wearer”. Here’s our smoking Danish hunk in his boxer shorts.

He was also spotted wearing a pair of white briefs in this still photo from the TV show Lock, Stock. His co-star at the left in a skimpy bikini-style underwear is Christopher Rowe.
