The 25 foot tribute to the original trilogy's action hero and heartthrob - who reprised his role of Ian Malcolm in 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' this year - has been put up in London in front of Tower Bridge.

Streaming service NOW TV is behind the stunt, which immortalises the moment the star flashed his torso as he leaned back for a breather after a Tyrannosaurus Rex attack.

The sculpture took six weeks - and 250 hours - to make, and stands three feet high, weighing in at 150kg.

The bare chested scene has become a internet sensation and a hit with fans, to the point that Goldblum himself has even opened up about the reaction to the now iconic scene, and explained the reason the doctor was topless.

Speaking earlier this year, he said: ''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.''

Goldblum admitted he wasn't fussed by the reaction to his body, and joked he can't get enough of the memes created because of his physique.

He added: ''I admire them myself. It's great, the human body is beautiful in all ways.''
