When it comes to success in Hollywood, sex sells and skin is ALWAYS in. But these following famous actresses have found ways to get around baring it all on the big screen and yet still somehow have managed to stay successful and relevant in the business even if it costs them some roles here and there. Whether upholding their own beliefs and values, not being comfortable in their own skin or simply just wanting to prove to the world that they’re more than what meets the eye, these actresses refuse to be seen fully naked in front of the camera. And while some of these celebrities don’t want their kids to see them in the flesh on screen, others prefer not to been seen in the nude by their own mothers.
From Disney‘s starlet Hilary Duff maintaining her squeaky-clean image in her music and movies, to funny woman Isla Fisher using a body double for her hilarious NSFW sex scene in Wedding Crashers, these leading ladies know just when and where to draw the line when it comes to showing off serious skin. Here are 15 Actresses Who Absolutely Refuse To Do Naked Scenes.
15. Anna Kendrick
The Pitch Perfect star is one actress who draws the line when it comes taking it all off in the films she’s in. When asked by The London Telegraph if she would ever consider going nude for a scene, Anna replied confidently. “Emphatically, no. I will not do that.”
Anna starred in the Twilight Saga series and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Up In The Air opposite George Clooney. “I have been lucky because I have not been pigeonholed into the teenage movie category. I am not criticizing people who do that [nude scenes] but I plan to keep doing what I am doing and hope it keeps going good,” the actress added.
14. Jenna Fischer
Famous for her role as Pam on The Office, funny woman Jenna Fischer won’t be getting fully naked for any role she plays although the actress told Fox News that getting partially nude for her role in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story was something she didn’t mind doing. “[A team of people] can light your cellulite so you see it or don’t see it; it’s the most amazing thing. They can put makeup on your legs, you try on hundreds of outfits until you find the one that looks the most perfect on you. It really has nothing to do with whether you’re in shape or not.”
As for completely nude scenes, Jenna refuses to do anything that could upset her family. “Well, I wouldn’t do anything I wouldn’t be proud to show my parents,” she told Playboy in 2008.
13. Mandy Moore
Singer/actress Mandy Moore has been known for maintaining her good-girl image throughout her years in Hollywood. The A Walk To Remember star told USA Today that taking it all off on camera is something that she just wouldn’t be comfortable doing. “It would be completely uncomfortable to walk down the street and know that the person passing by had seen me without my clothes on,” Mandy said. The “Candy” singer sticks to her guns when it comes to her no-nudity policy and has even gone as far as turning down movie roles that required her to strip down.
12. Isla Fisher
Playing the clingy nymphomaniac Gloria Cleary in the iconic movie Wedding Crashers, you would think that Isla Fisher would have no problem stripping down for the cameras, but that’s just not the case. Isla actually used a body double when it came to the hilarious sex scene with co-star Vince Vaughn. In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Isla explained why getting naked on the big screen just isn’t for her. “I feel like if you have a female comic character and then you see her nipples, then she is no longer funny, which is clearly wrong, but that was my theory, and that’s why I didn’t want to do it.”
11. Megan Fox
It’s no secret how many guys would kill to see Megan Fox in the nude, but the Transformers star and mom of two has revealed that stripping down to her birthday suit just isn’t her thing. When asked by MTV News if she’d ever consider making a sex tape, Megan immediately rejected the idea. “That’s the last thing I want to see — what I look like having sex. It would take one shot of me not looking good, and I would not be able to have sex ever again, because I would always just see myself looking like a hippo having sex.”
10. Rachel Bilson
The O.C.’s Summer Roberts, also known as Rachel Bilson, has a thing or two to say when it comes to ever being one to film a nude scene. In a previous interview with Playboy, the Hart of Dixie star voiced her opinion about her taking it off for a public audience. “Movies can be sexy or sexual without showing things … It’s almost a deal-breaker. [‘The Last Kiss’] was rated R, and they like to put in nudity wherever they can, but I’m pretty strong-willed and believe it can be avoided,” Rachel said.
9. Emma Watson
Actress and human right’s activist Emma Watson has made recent headlines due to her conscious effort and support of women’s rights and feminism in our society. The British beauty also has spoken out on her negative stance when it comes to stripping down for the camera. The reason why we won’t see the Harry Potter series star stripping down for any new roles she may play? Her innocent character of Hermione Granger of course! “I don’t want everyone to forget me as Hermione. I’m really proud of her,” the Brown University graduate told the press when asked about the topic.
8. Sarah Jessica Parker
Famous for her role on Sex and the City as Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker was the only actress on the show that was under a strict no-nudity contract. And the mom of three told Star Magazine that she is just as against using a body double than she is with going nude herself. “I’m a modest person. I’m not really proud of how I look. And you couldn’t pay me enough to have someone pretend they were me doing a nude scene.” And although her other co-stars were open to filming sex scenes, the actress explained to the UK Sun exactly where she drew the line. “I was not comfortable with nude scenes, scenes with sex toys or vulgar language – so I did not do any…My character, Carrie, kissed a lot of men – but that’s as far as it went.”
7. Julia Roberts
While attending her 2009 film Duplicity premiere, Julia Roberts was asked if she would ever consider filming a nude scene. “You know it’s not really what I do, so if you are going to ask me to do it, you have to expect it to be toned down. You know, as a mom of three, I feel like that,” the Pretty Woman actress said. The actress actually asked to tone Duplicity’s original sex scene because of her beliefs. “I wouldn’t do nudity in films. To act with my clothes on is a performance. To act with my clothes off is a documentary,” the actress also once said.
6. Jessica Simpson
The blonde bombshell has no problem showing off her rockin’ bod but she said she would draw the line if ever there was an opportunity to film a nude scene. “I will never do nudity. I don’t care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know. I don’t care if I could get an Oscar for it, I’m not going to do it,” the “I Wanna Love You Forever” singer once said. In the past, the mom of two has been in the tabloids for her rapid weight gain and loss after giving birth to her kids.
5. Blake Lively
The Gossip Girl actress is considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood but that doesn’t mean she’s open to strip down in front of the camera to show off her killer body. The wife of Ryan Reynolds previously said that she finds nude scenes more distracting than ever and can’t ever picture herself getting fully naked for an audience. “I know that if I am watching a scene and someone has their boobs out, then that’s all I’m looking at – I can’t help it. I just don’t think that will ever be right for me,” the mom of one admitted.
4. Christina Hendricks
Mad Men leading lady Christina Hendricks’s curvaceous figure drives tons of men completely mad but the stunning redhead has much more to offer than just her looks. “I’ve always been really comfortable in my skin, but I’m really just a girl who would prefer talking about my acting rather than my body,” she told Redbook Magazine. Despite being just about every man’s fantasy woman, the actress admitted to New York Magazine that she often times feels frustrated when people discuss her body more than her actual work. “It kind of hurt my feelings at first. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body,” Christina said.
3. Freida Pinto
Freida Pinto who got her first big break in Slumdog Millionaire is another drop dead gorgeous actress who isn’t one for baring it all on screen. Although it seems as though she stars in a steamy sex scene in Immortals, the Indian actress confessed that she actually didn’t star in the raunchy scene. “You are going to be very disappointed when I tell you this, but that was a body double,” the actress admitted to the Orange County Observer. Although Freida won’t bare it all in front of the camera, she came pretty close to it when she stripped down to her underwear in Bruno Mars’ music video for his song “Gorilla.”
2. Jessica Alba
Actress turned entrepreneur Jessica Alba is one to also put her foot down when it comes to appearing naked on screen because of family values. “I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s it,” the actress told Glamour. Although the actress gets down to her skivvies in Sin City, there’s no way she’ll ever bare it all even if it costs her a role or two. “I don’t do nudity. I just don’t. Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won’t get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety,” the mom of two told Elle.
1. Hilary Duff
We all came to know and love Hilary Duff for her outgoing and innocent personality on the Disney Channel’s hit show Lizzie McGuire back in the 2000’s. The actress/singer has managed to keep things rather PG throughout her entire career music and acting career. The Younger star doesn’t believe in stripping down in order to show her true self to the world. “If I do a movie, I want to be myself. I don’t want to take my top off or anything,” she once told London’s Daily Telegraph.
