A 25 ft statue of actor Jeff Goldblum attracted fans on the banks of the River Thames by the Tower Bridge in London to celebrate the 25th anniversary of celebrated film "Jurassic Park". Now TV's publicity team commissioned the statue of Goldblum, clad in Dr. Ian Malcolm's iconic all-black outfit with the shirt entirely unbuttoned, in an effort to recreate his famous pose from the film, reports variety.com.
People stopped for photographs with the statue since it appeared to reminisce about the film and Goldblum's scene-stealing role.
The 65-year-old actor took to Instagram to praise the statue.
The actor had recently opened up about shooting the iconic scene and revealed that it was not scripted.
Talking to reporters, Goldblum had said, "I don't think it was in the script. It's supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So things are hot and I'm sure I'm in some sort of fever. So all the logic is that we got to get some of these wet clothes off immediately. As I remember, I don't think anybody fought me on that."
He returned to the franchise with a cameo in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which released last month.
Jurassic Park, directed by Steven Spielberg, hit cinemas in 1993 and quickly became the highest-grossing film released worldwide up to that time. It also featured Sam Neill, Laura Dern and the late Richard Attenborough.
Goldblum reprised his character for the latest installment in the "Jurassic" franchise, "Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom," starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
"Jurassic Park" fans will have the chance to see 'Jurassic Jeff' in London until the statue is removed on July 26.
