Did Benedict Cumberbatch get naked for his role as the dragon in "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug"?

Benedict Cumberbatch revealed new details about his role as Smaug the dragon in the latest "Hobbit" installment in a new interview.

Benedict Cumberbatch explained in an interview what it felt like while in his role as Smaug the dragon in "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," while sitting atop a huge stack of gold coins in the dragon's mountain lair, The Star reports.

"I was like, bow chicka wow wow, there's going to be a little bit of dragon porn up here! But I didn't strip off, despite what Peter says," Cumberbatch joked from Los Angeles.

According to The Star, "Hobbit" director Peter Jackson has teasing Cumberbatch that he was "rolling around naked on a bearskin rug while doing the voice and motion-capture (or mo-cap) work needed to conjure Smaug," The Star writes.

"Peter loves to exaggerate, as we know," continued Cumberbatch, 37.
