If there is one thing that has been consistent about Hollywood right from the get-go, it is their preference for employing some of the most attractive people around when it comes to those that appear on camera. Sure, there are character actors or comedians that sneak in, and acting ability can have an effect too. But it is pretty blatant that there is preference given to beautiful people at the very least. As a result, there seems to be a constant effort by producers to find and cast new hotties each and every year, which has resulted in there being many people on film that many in the public have the hots for.
Some of the most famous actors around have made the decision to appear in various stages of undressing on film over their careers while others have yet to reveal themselves in that manner. In the latter scenario, that leaves many people around the world waiting and hoping that one day they may yet take their clothes off to the delight of viewers everywhere. Then it happens out of nowhere without ever being planned. Someone we all know reveals a private part of his or her body on film and those that notice rejoice. While it may be an unfortunate thing for the performer in question, we’re guessing that joe schmoes like you and me want to know when an instance like this happens. Coming to that conclusion is what inspired us to put together this list of fifteen celebrities that accidentally flashed on film.
In order for a piece of film to be considered for inclusion here, it needs to feature a celebrity of some manner in an exposed state that seems to be unintended. It doesn’t matter where the person in question earned fame or in which field, as long as a sizable group of people would know that person by name or face. We wish to make it clear that we can’t say with all certainty that the nudity in question wasn’t planned as some sort of publicity stunt but we can attest that doesn’t appear to be the case. With that in mind, let’s get to the list.
15 Milla Jovovich - Resident Evil
A model, musician, fashion designer, and actress, Milla Jovovich has spent much of her life in the spotlight since coming to prominence more than two decades ago. Not a stranger to onscreen nudity in the slightest, this multifaceted performer has appeared in the buff in films like The Three Musketeers, Stone, Ultraviolet, No Good Deed, He Got Game, and several others. However, it is because of the franchise that is her biggest claim to fame these days, Resident Evil, that she finds herself here. Near the end of her first foray into the series, her character can be seen waking up in what appears to be a medical facility. Wearing a hospital gown of sorts, she can be seen looking scared and pushing herself away from the camera which makes her garment ride up revealing her nether regions.
14 Pamela Adlon - Californication
There may be some of our readers that are left wondering who Pamela Adlon actually is while looking at a photo of her, but let us assure you that she's known in a lot of circles and you may have watched her work. When it comes to live action acting, she is best known for her roles in Grease 2, Louie, and Californication and she stars in a show she co-created with Louis C.K. called Better Things. If you are unaware of all of that work, however, you very well could be familiar with her voice as she won an Emmy Award for her work on King of the Hill where she played Bobby Hill. As for her accidental onscreen nudity, that came in the last season of Californication where she was seen lying on a bed in panties when her underwear shifted enough to show more than intended.
13 Sarah Shahi - Person of Interest
A former NFL Cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys, Sarah Shahi also has a beauty pageant history which shows that from an early age, her beauty was obvious. Mostly known today for her television work, she played prominent roles in shows like Fairly Legal, Life, and The L Word. However, there is another show she starred in that led to her inclusion on this list. Introduced in the second season of Person of Interest, her character was part of the main cast from season three onward and added a lot of s*x appeal to the show. In a scene from her first episode on the main cast, the season three debut, Sarah got out of a horse drawn carriage to take part in a shoot-out and because you could see up her dress and some of her crotch.
12 Claire Danes - Romeo + Juliet
An actress that became a star in her teen years, Claire Danes has never quite broken through to the upper echelons of stardom but she has remained well-known and respected. First coming to prominence for her work on the show My So-Called Life, after that series ended, it took years for her to return to the medium again until Homeland, which was a massive hit for her. Still, she spent years in the film world with roles in projects like Brokedown Palace, The Hours, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Shopgirl, to name a few. It is one of her earlier movie roles that led to her inclusion here as her performance in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet turned a lot of heads. One of the moments in the colorful film that was hard to ignore was when her character was thrown on a bed and her robe fluttered revealing her nether regions very briefly.
11 Winona Ryder - Autumn In New York
At one time, it seemed as though Winona Ryder was the go-to young woman in Hollywood as she seemed to be on the short list for every major role that was sought after. A former "it" girl, she managed to create a legacy of excellence with her performances in films like Heathers, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Reality Bites, and more. Having recently returned to the main stage with her role in Stranger Things, reminding the public of her skills, she may reclaim the level of fame she once enjoyed yet again. Years ago, she co-starred with Richard Gere, one of the most famous actors around at the time, in a movie called Autumn in New York. A romantic drama that focused on the relationship between the two stars, during a moment where Winona was laying on a bed, her garment betrayed her and shifted just enough to reveal one of her nipples.
10 Sarah Michelle Gellar - I Know What You Did Last Summer
When Sarah Michelle Gellar was tapped to play Buffy Summers in the television version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a star was born. A show with a massive following that seems to be more than happy to follow those involved in the series whenever they play a part in something of quality, they have helped her film career immensely. Also known for movies like Cruel Intentions and the Scooby Doo series, her greatest success still comes in horror as evidenced by movies like The Grudge. There's also the movie I Know What You Did Last Summer, in which she starred alongside some of the biggest young stars at the time. Playing a supporting role, during a scene in which she was hunted, she was still front and center, especially when pulling on a rope in a dress, and from the angle it was shot we could see her nipple for a moment.
9 Kristen Bell - Spartan
If you’ve ever seen Kristen Bell in an interview, she comes off as one of the most likable people around and she has managed to infuse much of her acting with that same vibe. Perhaps that is why her work on Veronica Mars and in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Fanboys, Couples Retreat, and Frozen have earned her so many followers. Also a beautiful blonde with a body that won’t quit, it is no wonder that there are so many people that anticipate the release of each of her performances. But for the most part, she has flaunted her looks too much. Then, you have her work in the movie Spartan in which she is kidnapped and in a notable moment, her breast seems to escape her top almost entirely when she receives a punch to the stomach.
8 Vivica A. Fox - Booty Call
An actress that oftentimes doesn’t quite get the credit she deserves, Vivica A. Fox appeared in several beloved films and is one of the most attractive actresses of her generation. Best known for roles in movies like Independence Day, Set It Off, Soul Food, and Kill Bill, at one time, she was a huge deal. She may not be as big of a star as she once was these days, but that hasn’t stopped us from hoping she’ll make a comeback any day now. During her biggest years, one of our favorite films of hers was a hilarious comedy called Booty Call which got raunchy. I mean, it shouldn’t surprise anyone since it was already implied in its title. Getting busy with a character played by Jamie Foxx, the scene was shot so her breasts were out of frame. However, during all of the bouncing, one of her nipples forced its way onscreen, nevertheless.
7 Julia Roberts - Pretty Woman
We really can’t fathom anyone arguing against Julia Roberts being one of the most beloved, successful, and famous actors of all-time based on her box office returns and the awards she has won. The star of huge movies like Hook, Ocean’s Eleven, Notting Hill, Conspiracy Theory, Erin Brockovich, and too many more to list here, she deserves to be called America’s sweetheart.
Despite that extensive list, there is no doubt in our mind that her biggest role to date is still Pretty Woman, the film that made her such a big deal, to begin with. Playing a hooker with a heart of gold, in a scene early on in the film, her character lies back on a bed and she can be seen through a grate as her nipple is visible for a slight moment. We need to touch on the fact that there is a rumor that she may have used a body double in this scene but since Mr. Skin doesn’t have it listed as such, as is very common on his website, we’re counting it.
6 Natalie Portman - Closer
From one extremely respected actress to another, Natalie Portman is definitely one of the most acclaimed actors of her generation. An Academy Award winner who also has Golden Globes, BAFTAs, a SAG award, and Independent Spirt Award on her mantle, she seems to have a Midas touch of sorts. Known for movies like Black Swan, The Professional, Jackie, Garden State, V for Vendetta, as well as the Star Wars and Thor franchises, it seems as though she can play a part in virtually any style of movie. One of the stars of Closer, alongside the aforementioned Julia Roberts as well as Jude Law and Clive Owen, she played a stripper in the movie. During a scene in which she gave a lap dance, she wore a wig and skimpy outfit and her top didn’t quite do its job which led to one of her breasts being revealed.
5 Jane Krakowski - Alfie
One of the best comedic actors in the television scene for years now, Jane Krakowski has the ability to come off as both lovable and frustrating at the same time. Introduced to many by her work on Ally McBeal, her most notable role was as Jenna Maroney on 30 Rock, which she played for seven seasons. Currently one of the stars of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, it seems as though she will continue to be a mainstay of the TV scene and we couldn’t be happier about that. Yet, it was a movie role that lands her here as she played a role in the romance film Alfie, where she was seen in a bra and revealed her nipple as she raised her arms.
4 Katherine Heigl - Side Effects
These days, Katherine Heigl is seen as a cautionary tale by many as what can happen to your career if you habitually fight with the powers in Hollywood. But, what a shame. Considering that, it could be argued that she was just speaking out against the simplistic manner women are sometimes portrayed in movies and on television. She is a great actress and we wish we could see more of her.
Most famous for her work in the show Grey’s Anatomy and movies like Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth, and more, she was a part of the acting elite at one time. These days, she has become relegated to projects you likely haven’t heard of but she had experience at that level, as she starred in a little-seen movie called Side Effects in 2005. During a scene from the film that is commonly shared online, the actress dances topless while facing away from the camera. But if you pause at just the right moment, her breast and nipple are visible.
3 Gabrielle Union - Bad Boys II
Having previously been seen in some pretty run of the mill teen movies like She’s All That and Bring It On, it didn’t take Gabrielle Union to become a much bigger star than that. Now best-known for her sterling performances in movies like Cradle 2 the Grave, The Brothers, Think Like a Man, its sequel, and much more, if you ask us, she deserves to be an even bigger star. One of the most gorgeous women in the acting world today in our view, there are millions that are crushing on her but unfortunately for them, she has mostly stayed fully clothed onscreen. That is aside from the time she was shot from beneath in Bad Boys II and her nipple briefly escaped her top.
2 Brie Larson - Tanner Hall
An actress that was in several acclaimed movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Short Term 12, The Spectacular Now, Room, and the show United States of Tara, Brie Larson is great at what she does. It seems like she is the latest “it girl” in Hollywood with movies like Kong: Skull Island and her upcoming inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we can’t wait to see her strut her skills. Still, there are a wealth of roles she played in films that flew under the radar, including a tiny movie called Tanner Hall. Shot in one scene in the rain while topless, she is shot above the chest in order to keep her privacy but she feels her chest and in doing so, moves one of her breasts up revealing a nipple.
1 Jennifer Love Hewitt - The Tuxedo
At one time, it could easily be argued that there was nobody in the film and television world that people wanted to see undressed more than Jennifer Love Hewitt. A woman that has been blessed with a rather bountiful chest, whenever she has appeared in a bikini or underwear of any sort, much of the world has stood up and paid attention. Known for her roles in Party of Five, Ghost Whisperer, and the I Know What You Did Last Summer franchise among others, she has yet to intentionally show off her naughty bits onscreen, much to our dismay. Of course, she wouldn’t be here if she hadn’t shown something she didn’t mean to and in this case, that happened when she was seen in a pool while wearing a dress in The Tuxedo and her nipple escaped.
