Playing Karina Smirnoff Rips Open William Levy's Shirt

William Levy gave women around the world a taste of what they had been waiting for when he unbuttoned his shirt for a few seconds during his Dancing with the Stars performance on Monday night, and fellow dancer Karina Smirnoff wanted to see more of Levy's shirtless body backstage after the show.

After Levy and partner Cheryl Burke explained to ET that there was more to their dancing than flashing his bare chest, Karina Smirnoff snuck behind Levy as he was being interviewed and ripped his shirt open. The 31-year-old actor was caught off-guard but was all laughs about the incident, lightheartedly calling Smirnoff "crazy girl."

Levy told ET that he had to work extra hard this week to prepare for the chest flashing not only on the dance floor but in the gym as well. "I was like, 'I'm not in really good shape,'" Levy described his reaction to Burke's proposal of the chest unveiling. "I had to go to the gym every day."

The Cuban native also discussed Monday night's emotional dances, of which he drew a positive conclusion. "We go through so many hard moments in life that you just got to see them in a positive way--always...I just try to always look for a positive voice, positive things to say."
