'My abs aren't CGI': Home and Away's Lincoln Lewis on his hot Bait body and constantly 'wet butt'

Former Home and Away heart-throb and recent Tricky Business star Lincoln Lewis is back on the big screen in Bait, the Aussie 3D blockbuster where sharks invade a Gold Coast supermarket after a tsunami. Or as Lincoln describes it to us, "Jaws meets Deep Blue Sea meets Pacific Fair".

TheFIX's Kylie Speer chatted with the 24-year-old charmer about showing off his hot body on film, playing "a bit of a knob" and dealing with a frequently "wet butt".

"At times the water did get a little warmer. I was a bit too lazy there maybe to go to the bathroom!" Lincoln teased about filming scenes in a submerged car.

"Every morning we'd get in with dry clothes, they'd put us in a little rubber ducky and float us out to the car ... So we'd sit down, get a wet butt and a wet back, and be like, 'Ah, this is how it was yesterday, alright!'"

Lincoln's abs get some steamy screen time in Bait (he's in good company alongside Twilight hunk Xavier Samuel) — but has post-production helped him out a bit?

Watch our candid interview above to hear his response!

Next year we'll see Lincoln in his first Hollywood role in the Will Smith blockbuster After Earth. Not bad for a boy from the bay.

Bait is out next Thursday, September 20. Watch the trailer and vote 'want to see'.
