Jonathan Majors was pitched his new film while naked in a bathhouse

Now that’s devotion.

Jonathan Majors revealed Monday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that he made Glen Powell pitch his film “Devotion” to him while they were naked in a Russian Turkish bathhouse in New York City.

“Pretty standard procedure,” Majors explained. “You have a meeting, you know, say, ‘Hey, you want to be in the movie?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, we could. Love to try it.’ After the director, the next thing is to meet with Glen Powell, who’s also our executive producer.”

“I go, ‘Yeah, man, let’s go to the Russian Turkish bathhouse.’”

The “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” actor said he knows a bathhouse isn’t a typical Hollywood meeting place.

“Standard Hollywood meeting, you know, you’re at what? San Vicente Bungalows? Soho House?” said Majors. “No, not us. We went to the hottest place in New York City.”

The 33-year-old actor called the bathhouse experience an “audition of friendship and camaraderie.”

“He showed up looking like a million bucks, like [‘Top Gun: Maverick’] Hangman, with those piercing blue eyes and that brilliant smile,” Majors recalled. “And I walked him into the ninth circle of hell.”

The duo allegedly sat in “100-degree heat” and dug deeper into the Korean War biopic.

“We talked about the story and the relationship between Tom Hudner, who was Jesse Brown’s wingman,” said Majors. “Again, this is the handshake for Jesse Brown. No one’s heard this story before.”

The Post reached out to Majors for comment.

Powell also recalled the bathhouse visit in a separate interview.

“When I first sat down with Jonathan, he insisted I meet him in a Russian bathhouse in New York,” he told Variety.

“And I pitched him the entire movie in the hottest sauna in this bathhouse as my brain was cooking and failing, I got him to sign.”

“Devotion,” which also stars Joe Jonas, Serinda Swan and Thomas Sadoski, is due to land in theaters Nov. 23.
