Some stars refuse to undress when performing in movies, whether for religious or other reasons.
Some celebrities are incredibly comfortable in their skin, so much so that they don’t mind acting in nude scenes. Halle Berry, Andra Day, Queen Latifah, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck and Angelina Jolie are just some of the few celebrities who have revealed it all. Sometimes an actor’s desire to tell a story the way a creator wanted outweighs any shyness or modesty. However, some stars refuse to undress when performing in movies.
Many stars name their morals as the reason they would never participate in nudity or outdoor nudity. Romantic scenes are a staple in movies and TV shows. A well-written plot coupled with a few steamy scenes is enough to glue viewers to the screen. Shows like Bridgerton had a privacy coordinator on set to ensure that the explicit scenes were conducted ethically with the actor’s ultimate comfort in mind. However, some stars will not move. Here are ten that won’t.
ten Ricky gervais
Night at the museum Ricky Gervais may consider using a double body in a nude scene but refuses to bar his actual body on screen. He undressed in a movie once, but only to his boxers. He joked that he had big, hairy breasts and no one wanted to see his naked body, not even him.
9 Keira knightley
Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice, and Atonement Keira Knightly will not be performing nude scenes, especially not for male filmmakers. She doesn’t feel comfortable being naked in front of a group of men. Knightley also doesn’t want to run free scenes, in general, for male directors, as they don’t want to be subject to male gaze. Knightley doesn’t want to do oiled up scenes with a lot of grunts anymore. Also, if she wants to make a movie about motherhood and bodily acceptance, she would prefer a female filmmaker.
8 Jessica alba
Jessica Alba is known for her stunning appearance. She wears breathtaking bikinis and latex catsuits that you can only wear if you practice religiously. However, she has never been fully nude in any film or television scene. The reason for her steadfast choice is that she doesn’t want her grandparents to see her breasts.
7 Wilson Rebel
Rebel Wilson is known for playing brave, daring and comedic characters such as Fat Amy in the Perfect franchise. However, she takes it seriously. In The Grimsby Brothers, Wilson was offered to do a nude scene with frontal nudity. However, what some people may not know is that she went for a double body instead. Wilson is comfortable in his own skin and would even do a nude scene. However, she would rather have her naked in a more serious drama or movie compared to a comedy.
6 Mila kunis
Mila Kunis’ repertoire is well known. People know her for playing characters in This 70s show, Bad moms, and do some voice work as Meg on Family guy. In Friends with benefits with Justin Timberlake, viewers got to see a side view of Kunis’ chest. However, she refused to show her back. The story of why Kunis won’t show too much skin dates back to when a producer asked him to put a lot of skin on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote one of his films. When she refused, he told her that her career would not be successful. However, the movie worked out well and it’s safe to say that she proved him wrong.
5 Chris Pratt
Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt was married to Anna Farris from 2009 to 2018 and is currently married to Katherine Schwarzenegger, the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, being married throughout his career is not the reason why nude scenes are a ‘no’ to him. It’s his faith. Pratt not only does not perform nude scenes, but he does not participate in sex scenes at all. Pratt has been transparent about his years as a stripper and stoner, but he’s put that lifestyle far behind him.
4 Julia robert
Julia Roberts played a prostitute in A pretty woman, but she didn’t undress for the role. If it ever appears that Roberts is naked in a scene, she uses duct tape and keeps her breasts hidden in front of the camera. One of the reasons Roberts refuses to film scenes in her birthday costume is because Roberts is a mom. She also feels like playing in her clothes is a performance, but performing without her clothes would be a documentary.
3 Megan Fox
Megan Fox has revealed that being a sex symbol isn’t all it’s meant to be. After the rise in popularity of Transformers franchise, her phone rang nonstop with offers to get rid of her clothes on the screen. She explained how she worked in movies with talented actors and directors, but couldn’t do some of the things that were asked of her because she would never want her kids to see her. In addition, her sexualization with directors and the general public has led to psychological depression. The way she was viewed also kept her from sharing her #MeToo moment.
2 Samuel jackson
Samuel Jackson is the highest grossing actor of all time. Although not the highest paying, his long list of movie roles has been huge box office successes. Jackson joked (or was Jackson kidding?) To Howard Stern about the fear that a particular body part might not match the size of his larger than life personality. Love scenes are awkward for Jackson in the first place, so it makes sense that he doesn’t want to make things even more awkward by stripping everything bare.
1 Oprah winfrey
Oprah Winfrey starred in Lee Daniel’s The butler, and the idea of a sex scene between her and Terrance Howard was under discussion, but Winfrey refused to go in that direction. She felt like this kind of scene pushed the character of her character Gloria and hers as well. Without the stage, The butler grossed $ 176 million on a budget of $ 30 million.
