The perverts of America are freaking out because Jessica Alba‘s recent nude scene in “Machete” was apparently CGI-created. Instead of getting naked for the role, which Alba has steadfastly resolved to avoid at all costs, she wore white underwear which were then digitally removed in post-production. Judging from the before and after pictures, they took a couple pounds of flesh off as well. But people aren’t freaking out because of the chop-shop job on her tummy; it seems that people feel duped for believing they had actually seen Alba naked. Personally, I don’t understand why they care so much since so much of what we see in movies are body doubles anyway. And as Entertainment Weekly pointed out, there are only four options if an actress doesn’t want to be nude—cut the scene, wear a bra all the time like Carrie Bradshaw, use CGI, get a body double to fake it, or hire a new actress. And of the options, I think I might be on Team CGI, especially if the nudity is actually necessary for the role, which it totally wasn’t for “Machete.” If you’re looking for gratuitous nudity, why not go faux?
