Ronen Rubinstein — the actor who is one-half of the couple known as "Tarlos" on the hit series "9-1-1: Lone Star," headed to Italy and shared a video of himself skinny dipping.

In the season finale of "9-1-1: Lone Star," "Tarlos" became engaged, doing so in an unexpected way — in a late night phone conversation. "Tarlos" is the acronym for firefighter T.K. (Ronen Rubinstein) and police officer (Rafael Silva), who have been dating for three seasons on the popular Fox series.

And it is a case of authentic representation on a major television series: Brazilian-born Silva was out when he was cast in the role in 2019, while Rubinstein went public with being bisexual in 2021.


But Rubinstein is trending on social media for another reason — a pic he posted of himself skinny dipping while vacationing in Italy.

"The openly bisexual Israeli actor left little to the imagination, at least where his backside is concerned," said the website ComicSands.

Referencing the resort where he's currently soaking up some sun, Rubinstein captioned the video "La Dolce Vita" — Italian for "the sweet life."
