Watchmen's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was the very first guest for our new podcast, PEOPLE Every Day, and he gave listeners the scoop on what it's really like to be a TV star -- including dealing with your mother watching your nude scenes.

"Surprisingly, she didn't react," Abdul-Mateen told host (and PEOPLE Editor-at-Large Janine Rubenstein about his mom watching his Watchmen nude scenes. "I don't know if she reacted on the inside or what she was trying to hold."

But after the scene, Abdul-Mateen said his mother had "zero feedback"' while admitting with a laugh, "I did give [my family] a heads up about the straight-up naked, naked, naked [scenes]."

During the interview, Abdul-Mateen told listeners about the state of his DMs, saying "it's quiet in there".

"Lies," Rubenstein replied.
