Dancer Robbie Fairchild — who played Munkustrap in the critically mauled 2019 bomb “Cats” — says he has seen the movie’s mythical “butthole cut,” and was surprised by some other odd additions to his character. 

Pros who worked on the box-office bomb have confirmed the existence of a so-called “butthole cut” — with a crew member stating that during the initial virtual effects process, the “Cats” stars’ skin and fur had been, “groomed or just folded in a way that really REALLY looked like very furry lady genitals and buttholes by accident.” 

But Fairchild tells Page Six that he’s also seen the controversial version of the film, and, “It was my favorite thing in the world. They gave me eight nipples. They were like radioactive pink.” 

Fairchild taught a Pride-themed workout class at Surf Lodge in the Hamptons last weekend, hosted with Lightbox Jewelry.

“If you’re going to be in a flop, be in a big one,” he said with a laugh. But he added that he was grateful for the experience, and had a wonderful time on set.

“I was playing [word game] Bananagrams with Judi Dench in between takes, and she would teach me Shakespeare sonnets.”

He added, “Judi texts me. We have stayed involved in each others lives. What kind of wild world is that? It’s so f–king cool.”

Fairchild is a former ballet dancer who starred on Broadway in “An American in Paris,” and just had rehearsals with Twyla Tharp for the upcoming Fall for Dance at City Center. He also will appear at the Vail International Dance Festival, and is busy running a floral company he launched during the pandemic, called boo.kay. 

“Cats” also starred Idris Elba, James Corden, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Jason Derulo, among others.
