5 Stars Who Aren’t Afraid of On-Screen Nudity
While some find it awkward or difficult to strip bare for a role and show their entire body (you’ve got to admit, it does take some guts), these 5 celebrities say they have no problem with on-screen nudity in films. Some think Americans are “prudish” and need to be more open to their own bodies, while others just feel as though they’re happy to give that part of themselves for a role if it is required and makes the film better. Not afraid to show what they’ve got, these celebrities would never turn down a part because nudity featured and have been naked on screen before with no problems. It might not be the easiest thing to do, but they feel as though it isn’t the big deal it’s made out to be and that people need to just let go!
Angelina believes there is nothing to be ashamed of: “There’s too much prudery in America. Feeling ashamed about sex or nudity is a very sad thing because it’s simply repressing a very important aspect of human nature and warping our way or dealing with our bodies and sexuality. It’s repressive. I’ve always felt that sex is one of the most liberating experiences we can have.”
Anne had to get naked for her part in ‘Love & Other Drugs’ with actor Jake Gyllenhaal and enjoyed the experience: “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with nudity in film, and I would hope that any actor that is asked to reveal that part of themselves has as loving and open experience as we had.”
Eva doesn’t understand why people still find nudity in film so shocking: “When I did ‘The Dreamers’ I was not aware when I was filming it that all the questions from journalists afterwards would only be about the nudity. I was asked all these questions about the sex scenes. I don’t know why people make such a fuss. Sometimes I feel like I’m a porn actress.”
Keira is open to exposing herself and isn’t bothered by getting naked for a role: ”I’m not prudish when it comes to nudity. If the role calls for nudity, then I’m going to be naked. I’m not afraid to expose myself that way.”
Michael’s co-star in ‘Shame’ Carey Mulligan commented that he is fearless when it comes to nudity: “The minute you want to talk about sex with people seriously it makes people uncomfortable. Michael has no insecurity, or if he does he hides it away somewhere where people can’t see it. A lot of actors, especially when they are as talented and good looking as Michael, only want parts where they are shown in a good light. If I learned anything working with Michael, it’s that he’s utterly fearless.”
