We tend to villainize filmmakers, producers and studio heads when we think about scenes in the buff. We like to imagine that most of it is gratuitous or unnecessary, that including these shots in a film or on a TV show is only pandering to sick and twisted audiences. But, then again, we love them. We're a confused bunch. There's a weird divide here in how we feel about actors in these situations as well. For many of the lesser-known actors in these scenes, being comfortable with baring it all is probably the only reason they got hired in the first place. For big-time stars, however, we relate to them a little. We imagine that they've been forced to accept a fate that's been handed down to them by the powers that be. Sure, it no doubt happens like this some of the time but not all. In some situations, it is the actor who decides that a little more skin is necessary to play the part properly.
Acknowledging this, we've gone out and found all the actors who felt that more skin would be a good thing. In each of these scenarios, it wasn't a big, lecherous old director telling some young, impressionable actress to take her clothes off; it was the actor themselves who thought it would be a good idea. Whether it was for the good of the shot or to make the scene more believable, these actors showed more skin than they were asked to. On set, actors usually have options to do these scenes in a more family-friendly manner, but the actors on this list decided to do it the old-fashioned way, 'au naturel' as our French friends like to say. Here are 15 A-Listers who asked if their characters could show more skin.
15 Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton – Monster's Ball
14 Lara Pulver – Sherlock
13 Hugh Jackman – X-Men: Days of Future Past
12 Lena Dunham – Girls
11 Robert Pattinson – Little Ashes
10 Julianne Moore - Pretty Much Every Film
9 Shia LaBeouf – Nymphomaniac
8 Mindy Kaling – The Mindy Project
7 Alexander Skarsgard – True Blood
6 Jennifer Aniston – Wanderlust
5 Jason Segel – Forgetting Sarah Marshall
4 Helen Mirren – Caligula
3 Amanda Seyfried – Lovelace
2 Chris Hemsworth – Thor
1 Emilia Clarke – Game of Thrones
A lot has been made about Emilia Clarke's thoughts on nudity in Game of Thrones. From one comment that Clarke made about only wanting necessary nude scenes and more male nudity, the actress was made out to seem like she would refuse to do all scenes that entailed her baring it all thereafter. Well, that wasn't true. In fact, Clarke doesn't mind doing these types of scenes. For many of her scenes, especially those from season six, Clarke feels they were necessary for the character and the plot. Some Game of Thrones fans criticized Lena Headey's choice to use a body double in her "intimate" scenes, an option given to Clarke as well. Yet, when asked about it, Clarke was adamant that it was her nude body on screen: "this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ There ain’t no body double!"
