Stuff that wouldn’t fly in the real world often happens on the big screen. We’re talking about steamy scenes involving underage actors and actresses, some movies that were even nominated for Oscars. The age of consent is 18 in the USA and 16 in Canada, yet many films feature children and teens in consenting roles. In Hollywood such roles are acceptable, but they'd be considered creepy, and/or inappropriate, if not flat out illegal in real life. Some of these actors even had their first kiss on-screen! Sometimes the youth of these actors slips by without comment from the public, but depending on the explicit nature of the scene, it can cause controversy and anger.
If a child is underage, parental consent is needed to be able to have a minor participate in these more 'adult' scenes. Parents are also required to be on set. Of course, there are things like body doubles and other special effects, but some question if it’s all really enough. Here's a list of some steamy on-screen moments that definitely would have been deemed highly inappropriate and illegal in the real world.
10 Shia LaBeouf and Amy Smart
9 Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
8 Sophie Turner
7 Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt
6 Cary Elwes and Alicia Silverstone
5 Colin Farrell and Q’orianka Kilcher
4 Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins
3 Nicole Kidman and Cameron Bright
2 Dakota Fanning
1 Brooke Shields
A film about child prostitution in New Orleans, which went on to receive positive reviews from critics, is going to be pretty hard-pressed not to feature an underage actress. It appears as though Brooke Shields (left) has done a lot of underage nudity in films. 1978’s Pretty Baby, the historical fiction film, is no exception. Shields was twelve years old at the time and the film features her not only nude in various scenes but also getting intimate (as implied) with a man much older than her. Naturally, Shields was yet again the source of a lot of controversy due to her nude scenes - in fact, the film was banned in multiple provinces in Canada, namely Ontario and Saskatchewan.
