“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.”
—Jason Segal talks in the latest issue of GQ about his infamous full-frontal scene in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” He apparently won’t be going nude in the new Muppet movie? [NY Post] Keep reading »
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.

“I’ve never had a problem with nudity, but I don’t put it out there without a reason. I’m not an exhibitionist. But, honestly, for my art I’ll do anything almost. I’ll go there. I know I walk a fine line between being a respected actor and being what they call a sex symbol. But I’ve never felt objectified. Nothing you see me do is an accident. I might act like it’s an accident but the opposite is true. I’m incredibly calculated when it comes to my career.”
– Eva Mendes opened up to W magazine about her willingness to take it all off in movies. We prefer her clothed. [People] Keep reading »
A pinata shop in Donna, Texas, sells the usual Elmo and Batman pinatas, but it also sells one particularly troubling item: a pinata of a topless lady on a stripper pole. Moms who drive past the nudie pinatas told the local news station it’s inappropriate for little kids to see. No one questions, though, whether there’s something wrong with the idea of swinging a bat at a stripper pinata.

If you thought the Boobquake was a stupid activist statement, hold onto your panties! No, seriously, hold onto your panties: Axe Body Spray is hosting the “Axe Undie Run Challenge” at 10 colleges around the country to see who can donate the most clothes to local homeless charities … and also, to get a bunch of 18-year-old freshman girls half-naked on the quad.

Apparently we are not mature enough or decent enough to view art anymore. At a Marina Abramovic performance art retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, I was shocked and appalled to find out about all of the offensive behaviors by museum-goers. One of the performance pieces, called “Imponderabilia”, features a naked man and woman standing up, facing each other in a narrow passageway, and visitors are encouraged to pass through them. You would assume that civilized people would know to keep their hands to themselves, their mouths closed, and their privates and digital cameras tucked away. Not the case. The performers and security guards have reported a number of egregious acts by visitors during the performance. There have been lots of incidents of inappropriate groping and private grabbing, including a homoerotic butt caress and lewd words that left one man with a revoked membership. But wait, there’s more!
