Hopefully someone had a fire extinguisher near by, because Taylor Kinney was smoldering on the red carpet at the 2013 NBCUniversal Summer Press Day held at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa yesterday (April 22, 2013) in Pasadena, California.
I mean, seriously, how did Lady Gaga land him?
OK Magazine asked the actor the hypothetical question as to what he would do in the event of a fire (Jesse plays a firefighter on Chicago Fire), Kinney responded:
“My first response to that, and this was before (working on Chicago Fire), but I don’t know if I would react any differently…your mind goes to instinctively get something because it’s the last time you’re in there,” he explains.
When he lived in San Diego for years ago, a house Jesse was in actually caught on fire. “I grabbed a phone charger and an old record player that you could probably get for $20 at CVS. I was like, ‘Oh, I got stuff.’ Would I handle it different now? Probably.”
In my mind Jesse rips off his shirt before launching in to action. That’s just me.
