Taking it all off in a film used to signify the end of an acting career. Serious actors steered clear of baring it all while lesser known performers were free to do the scenes and maybe even make a name for themselves for doing it. Today, that has all changed and some of the most well-known actors are not only showing a little skin but going all the way, leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination. Most of the actors on our list donned their birthday suit in the name of meaningful art, while one did it just for a laugh. Here are 10 Actors who took it All off on the Set of their Movie.
Shia Labeouf in Nymphomaniac
Even for a former Disney star, Shia Labeouf has had a rocky career. While there have been public altercations and fumbles, his film choices and performance art still remains the strangest thing about him. He hit it big with Distubia and Transformers but has since veered off to much more independent films. One of those films is Nymphomaniac in which he not only appears fully nude but also engages in lewd sexual acts. Director Lars Von Trier has stated that the sex scenes were performed by porn actors with the film actor’s faces digitally superimposed on the bodies. Even if the unsimulated sex was not performed by the Even Stevens actor, the full frontal nudity is all him proving Shia is not so shy.
Angelina Jolie, Gia
Angelina Jolie has become a UN Ambassador, philanthropist, mother of six and still manages to not only star in films but direct them as well. After making a few forgettable films, Jolie burst onto the scene with two Golden Globe wins, one for the George Wallace in 1998 and the next for Gia in 1999. It was Gia that Jolie stripped down completely. In the film, Jolie plays real-life model Gia Marie Carangi, a troubled woman who gets involved in drugs and promiscuous sex. The film is devastatingly sad and it is no wonder that audiences applauded Jolie’s performance. One of the reasons her performance is notable is because of the rawness in which she plays Gia and part of the rawness include plenty of nudity. The real Gia was anything but bashful about her body and Jolie portrayed that perfectly in a photoshoot scene and a truly intimate sex scene with actress Elizabeth Mitchell. Angelina Jolie took it all off for Gia while cementing her position as an emerging star.
Scarlett Johansson Under the Skin
Scarlett Johansson is one the hottest female actors in films and she has acquired plenty of admirers for her talent and voluptuous appearance. After years of avoiding nude scenes, Scarlett finally showed audiences what she had been tastefully hiding for years for the film Under the Skin. The science fiction film stars Johansson as an extraterrestrial who takes the form of a human woman and seduces unsuspecting men. While getting used to her new human body, the actress is shown fully exposed. Johannsson was not sure she wanted to go nude for the film since she never did it in the past. Her apprehension and fear subsided once she spoke with the film’s director and understood the importance of her character being nude since her body is her enticement and weapon for the men in the film. Her decision to do the film was certainly appreciated by fans.
Margot Robbie in Wolf of Wall Street
In a short time, Margot Robbie has become a huge star thanks in large part for her role as the beloved DC character, Harley Quinn. Before she was wreaking havoc in Gotham city, she made a huge splash opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. In the film, she plays the second wife, Naomi, of DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort. The moment Robbie enters the film, it is hard to look anywhere else thanks to her striking beauty and mesmerizing performance. While her character seems mysterious at first, Robbie did not hide anything from audiences during a seduction scene with DiCaprio. Originally, director Martin Scorsese offered the actress to do the scene in a robe, but Robbie declined the offer noting that Naomi’s body is the only currency she has and would surely lay it out there for Jordan to see. While there is plenty of nudity in The Wolf of Wall Street, Robbie’s bare debut remains one of the most memorable moments of the film.
