“I was naked a lot in the movie. I was naked in more of it than was even in the final cut. A director’s cut? I don’t even know how that would be rated.”
– Jake Gyllenhaal discusses getting naked for “Love and Other Drugs,” out November 24, with Esquire UK. So, how naked does he (and co-star Anne Hathaway) get? Boobs and butts, according to the interview, but I’m hoping the DVD extras include an extended version of the scene above. [ONTD] Keep reading »
If you’re a young starlet looking to score fame and fortune, but you’re not quite ready to release that sex tape you made with your ex, what better way to capture the nation’s attention than by getting naked before the cameras in the film or movie of your choice? Meet 10 starlets who are as well known for being nude as they are for their acting talents.
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?

We’ve scrounged up some other CGI nude moments in movie history to continue the debate. Keep reading »
“In true motherly fashion, [my mom] sent out a mass e-mail to my family saying, ‘I just want you all to know that in Jason’s upcoming film, he has chosen to do full frontal nudity, but please note, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.’”
– Jason Segel on how his mother handled his infamous nude scene in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Aww, moms — so supportive. [USA Today] Keep reading »
“I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden, and it’s different there. If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show. And I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”
– Alexander Skarsgard on playing the not-nearly-nude-enough vampire Eric on “True Blood.” After a jaw-droppingly hot nude scene in the season premiere, featuring his tight, bare posterior, Eric/Alexander has been disappointingly clothed in the episodes since. Alan Ball, are you listening? The man doesn’t mind being naked. He likes it. The viewers like it too. More please. [PopEater] Keep reading »
A lot of people have trouble letting sleeping dogs lie. Not to call Gary Coleman a dog, but a site called Kikster.com has obtained a clip of the deceased actor flashing the camera, and has packaged it with the headline, “Gary Coleman was Not Little! Exclusive Video of Gary Coleman Exposed.” I think it’s safe to assume that no one wants to see that, regardless of how “not little” he might have been. Reportedly, the clip came from Gary’s role as a porn-mogul in the documentary “Midgets vs. Mascots.” It shows Coleman standing in the shower, trying to break up a fight. Keep reading »
“We would test 20 frames versus 10 frames [of the nude scene]—and this is, like, half a second of ["Forgetting Sarah Marshall"] we’re talking about. The craziest thing was the first test screening. I’m sitting in the back with a baseball cap on so no one knows I’m there and it’s going great — people really seem to like it. And then the moderator goes, ‘Does anyone else have anything to say before we go?’ And this one college dude raises his hand and says, ‘Yeah. Before we go, can we just take a minute and talk about this guy’s weird d**k?’ The moderator was like, ‘No, I don’t think we need to talk about that.’ I would have liked to hear it, actually.”

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: Would you rather appear completely naked (we’re talking full-frontal, vag-in-view nudity) on the cover of Vogue, or appear fully-clothed in a Playboy spread? Strip for a classy mag, and most supermarket shoppers will now know what your ta-tas look like. Stay clothed for the porn publication, and you may get less exposure (if they keep the Playboy issues behind the counter), but your reputation might suffer … especially if your face happens to appear right next to the MTV reality star du jour’s vag.
