Teen movie underwear sightings are some of the most classic and infamous in movie history. From actors who are most definitely not teens, we get underwear cameos in movies from Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Nightmare on Elm Street. Some of our favorite movie underwear sightings come from our favorite actors, too. Celebrities like Rob Lowe, Matthew Broderick, and Ashton Kutcher have all dropped trou at one time or another, showcasing underwear and swimwear from a variety of flicks throughout the last few decades.
This list is by no means exhaustive, but it captures some of our all time favorite movie underwear sightings for sure.
Check out 12 teen movie underwear sightings below, and let us know which favorites you’d like to see in our list below or on Twitter here.
Heathers (1988): Rocketing Winona Ryder to fame, this classic satire on teen suicide and high school hierarchy got down and dirty with some not-so-stylish underwear (not pictured). When two leatherheads soil Ryder’s good name, she and bad boy Christian Slater get even by shooting them and crafting them into gay martyrs against homophobia. Risky Business (1983): This Tom Cruise flick is often eclipsed by Cruise’s infamous boogie down to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” in nothing but a pink dress shirt, socks and skivvies. Class (1983): This Brat Pack cult classic bromance between Andrew McCarthy and Rob Lowe is a very classy affair, with tons of bro humor and May-December relationships to go around. Both McCarthy and Lowe frequent the film in theirs and women’s underwear throughout the film. A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddie’s Revenge (1985): Noted by many film critics now as being one of the first homoerotic horror films—saturated with pre-AIDS paranoia and a scene that takes place in a BDSM leather bar—this cult classic also included a baseball field brawl between final boy Jesse (Jesse Walsh) and best pal Robert (Ron Grady). Blows are thrown and jockstraps tear. Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000): Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott landed on every teen magazine and were plastered in every bedroom when this film came out. The trippy stoner film also featured some superb underwear in a now-famous baked-brain back tattoo scene, to name just one.
American Pie (1999): The teen comedy anti-virginity pact flick became infamous for its baked goods. The undie scenes of Jason Biggs pie-lovin’ and the following pre-Skype mating dance are now as iconic as Tara Reid's botched plastic surgery. Porky’s (1982): The Canadian sex comedy following teens in 1954 still gets laughs, especially with Kim Cattrall’s illustrious love sounds. Practically every scene is littered with some surprisingly stylish briefs. Kaboom! (2010): Gregg Araki may be best known for indie faves “The Doom Generation” and “Mysterious Skin,” but it's “Kaboom!” that explodes with some of the best underwear in recent memory—rather it’s Chris Zylka doing push-ups in his dorm, Thomas Dekker bedhopping or Brennan Mejia experimenting.
