Forget the Oscar-nominated films—there's another flick that's got everyone buzzing: Fifty Shades of Grey

This weekend marked the erotic movie's second big run at the box office following its big debut on February 13, during which it garnered a whopping $85 million over the three-day President's Day weekend. 

Not only did the film continue to dominate during its second weekend in theaters, but it also remained No. 1 and brought in an astounding $23.2 million. 

Surprised? Well, you're not alone, as former Disney star Christy Carlson Romano, who is best known for her roles on Even Stevens and Kim Possible, made a bet with her hubby, insisting that the film couldn't possibly rule the box office again. 

Obviously, she was wrong, and as result, the actress was forced to stand outside on her New York balcony in freezing cold weather...wearing only lingerie. 

But before you shake your head at the chilly stunt, let Romano explain why she decided to make the wager with her man. 

"So my husband Brendan and I recently made a bet after watching Fifty Shades of Grey last week. I told him all about how terrible it was and how I have major issues with the film, mostly the consent issue and I couldn't wait to watch it fall off the next box office weekend..." she explains. "And then he laughed and told me he knew it was going to stink, but that I shouldn't get my hopes up because it's definitely still going to win the box office weekend." 

The two decided that, if Brendan lost, then he would have to stand outside for a minute in his boxers, but if Christy lost, then she would have to wear lingerie in the zero-degree weather.

"So even though Fifty Shades plummeted, it's still going to win the weekend. And this weekend is one of the coldest in New York City history..." she says before revealing, "In protest of this misogynistic and misguided film to exercise my right of consent and stand outside." 

Romano then completes the task (and freezes her tush off as she flaunts her bangin' bod!) while her husband counts down on the clock.

Naturally, she falls on her butt when she runs back inside.

Be careful what you bet on, Romano!
