There seems to be an increasing number of scenes involving nudity both on film screens and on the screens of HBO shows. Whether it’s because our culture is more permissive towards nudity than it was fifty years ago, or because the world of Hollywood is looking to shock and awe a lot more, it’s a fact – more and more actors and actresses are choosing to bare it all, whether it be for attention or artistic reasons.
In response to the risqué trend, there are several actors and actresses that have taken a strong stance, either writing “no nudity” clauses into their contract, or outright turning down roles that may require them to strip on camera. Regardless of what the role is or what impact a certain role might have on their career, they stick to their guns and insist on never peeling off every article of clothing on camera.
The stars on this list show that taking a strong stance like refusing to go nude doesn’t always equal a destroyed career – the actors and actresses on this list are all highly successful in Hollywood, despite having strict rules that other actors or actresses may not have. It shows that, even in the fickle world of Hollywood, if one’s talent and star power is significant enough, concessions can and will be made.
Whatever their reason – and their reasons are certainly diverse – nudity just isn’t an option for these celebrities when it comes to their time on camera. Here are 10 celebrities who didn’t want to go nude for scenes.
10 Sarah Jessica Parker
9 Jessica Alba
8 Christina Hendricks
7 Isla Fisher
6 Rachel Bilson
5 Emma Watson
4 Neal McDonough
3 Oona Chaplin
2 Mandy Moore
1 Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts has outright stated that she doesn’t plan to do nude scenes in her career. What about the role that launched her career, playing the prostitute Vivian in Pretty Woman? That was a body double, not Roberts herself. She has told E! News that on screen nudity is just “not my thing,” and now that she is a mother, she has become even more insistent upon her no nudity role, even calling into question other mothers who might opt to bare it all. What does this A-Lister do when she is faced with a role that requires nudity? Easy – she’s Julia Roberts, she tells them the scene needs to be toned down (read – she needs to be covered up a little) or she won’t do it. When you have the kind of star power that Roberts does, here’s betting that they’ll change the scene around a little.
