Comedy and nudity have gone hand in hand for quite a while in movies. It makes sense as there’s something about the human body that’s just inherently funny and thus easy to laugh at. Comedy has used that quite a lot over the years for several movies from the obvious nudity-fest of films like Porky’s and other ‘80’s flicks to a bit more nuanced ones. It’s been cut down a bit in recent years but can still pop in, everything from full-on nudity to more hidden but still notable thanks to the stars and the situation.
Trying to pick the best is a bit much but here are 15 examples of nude scenes in comedies that still linger in the mind. Most involve women but a couple of guys thrown in as well as it’s the memorable aspect to make it stand out and marvel at the fun of a nude body when used right in comedy and all these actors lived up to that.
15 Julianne Moore - The Big Lebowski
14 Rebecca De Mornay - Risky Business
13 Rose Byrne - Neighbors
12 Leslie Mann - The Change-Up
11 Cameron Diaz - Sex Tape
10 Will Ferrell - Old School
9 Jennifer Aniston - The Break-Up and Horrible Bosses
Aniston has mostly avoided nudity but made a few good exceptions in these comedies. In The Break-Up, she and Vince Vaughn are a couple who split but neither wants to leave their great home so try to drive the other away. As part of her scheme, Aniston walks stark naked around the apartment, knowing it’s a sight that will affect Vaughn. It also affects us with a nice shot of her amazing rear end and the little smirk on Aniston’s face makes it even better.
8 Joyce Hyser - Just One of the Guys
How Joyce Hyser never became a star is surprising as she proved herself in talent in this popular 1985 comedy. She plays Terry, an aspiring journalist convinced she’s not taken seriously by her teacher because of her good looks. So, she dresses up as a boy and enrolls in another school to prove herself there. We get whacky comedy of her as a guy from trying to avoid being a “skins” in a gym class to being set up with a date (Sherilyn Fenn). She meets Rick (Calyton Rohner), a nice guy who she helps become incredibly popular and soon starts falling for him.
7 Demi Moore - Striptease
6 Jamie Lee Curtis - Trading Places
5 Jason Segal - Forgetting Sarah Marshall
4 Uma Thurman - The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
3 Shannon Elizabeth - American Pie
2 Sacha Baron Cohen and Ken Davitian - Borat
His star may have fallen a bit but in 2006, Sacha Baron Cohen blew away moviegoers with his wild comedy that basked in being politically incorrect and taking advantage of a style of shooting so people had no idea they were being put on in a comedy. His character is on a quest to basically kidnap Pamela Anderson for his bride with his production assistant Azmat along for the cross-country ride.
1 Phoebe Cates - Fast Times at Ridgemont High
It’s quite frankly one of the most iconic nude scenes in all of movies, a moment no teen growing up in the 1980s (and beyond) can possibly forget. Brad (Judge Reinhold) imagines local hottie Linda (Phoebe Cates) while at a pool party, emerging out of the pool with water dripping off her, talking of how hot he is and how badly she wants him. Of course, it’s all in his head as he’s in the bathroom pleasuring himself to the thought. His dream continues as Linda undoes her bikini top and unleashes those glorious breasts. However, the illusion is shattered when the real Linda gets out of the pool, heads to the bathroom and walks right in on Brad. It’s a classic moment that briefly made Cates a star and highlighting the lists of the best nude scenes in movie history.
