But while the steamy moment was lauded by fans, it also caused confusion, since Goldblum's character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, was supposed to be suffering from a severe leg injury at the time. Instead, viewers see a calm, cool, and collected version of the character who somehow manages to unbutton his shirt in all this agony.
Earlier this year, Goldblum gave some insight on the reasoning of why the shirt had to be unbuttoned.
"It's supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So things are hot and I'm sure I'm in some sort of fever," he said. "So all the logic is that we gotta get some of these wet clothes off immediately. As I remember, I don't think anybody fought me on that."
Now, ahead of Jurassic Park's 25th anniversary in June, Goldblum gave some more insight to Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
"I asked Jeff Goldbum during #JP25 what he remembers about shooting his iconic & smoldering shirtless scene. He told me it WAS NOT scripted," tweeted Vogt-Roberts. "The AD was on stage and confirmed Goldblum made the decision to unbutton his shirt and everyone just went with it. What an absolute legend."
