To make it in any of the competitive businesses that lead one to be a celebrity, you need to have accomplished some things of note. These days, in most cases, it is left to the powers of the audience to decide who even has the opportunity to prove that they deserve a chance to show that they have the goods. As a result of that, potential stars-to-be have to convince them that they deserve such a chance. We’re sure that it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that one of the attributes that makes someone more likely to be placed in front of the public is simply being a hot person.
Once someone has beaten the odds and managed to become a known entity, it then falls to the public to support them or turn their backs. As a result, there is a concerted effort to make the masses invest in a star who is frequently quite successful. When regular Joes and Janes like us grow to care about someone who is stunning, we all realize that a desire begins to spring up. After all, wanting to see someone we are attracted to uncovered is a biological imperative if the human race is meant to exist going forward. Realizing this is what inspired us to put together this list of twenty celebrities you didn’t know appeared in the buff.
In order for someone to be considered for inclusion on this list, she first has to be famous to at least a sizable group of people. It makes no difference what she has done to earn her notoriety, so actors, musicians, athletes, and many other types of people could be included here. Next, she needs to have appeared without clothes on camera. She doesn’t need to be completely nude as long as some of her private parts are exposed. Finally, it has to seem like most of the public has no idea that she made the choice to reveal herself. It should also be noted, though, that everyone is different and you may know about some of these moments, but we believe that most people do not.
20 Gillian Jacobs - “Choke”
One of the stars of the series Community, her work in the series that has a rabid fanbase has earned her a devoted following despite her character jokingly being called “worst” a lot. Not content to be a one-trick pony no matter how beloved she was for it, Gillian Jacobs also appeared in the show Girls, on top of movies like Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Brother Nature. These days, the star of the Netflix series Love, her work on the show has been well-received by both viewers and critics alike. Seen topless in the movie Choke, which was based on a novel written by the mind behind Fight Club, she played a stripper who partially disrobed for the film’s lead.
19 Briana Evigan - “ToY”
An actress who is far from a household name, Briana Evigan has still done enough in her career to have made a considerable mark. She is known by some for her work in the Step Up series, where she proved that her dance moves made her one of the sexiest women around partly because seeing her do her thing while all wet was amazing. Also considered a scream queen by some, she has appeared in horror movies like Sorority Row, The Devil’s Carnival, its sequel, Stash House, Mine Games, and the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn. Seen naked in 2015’s ToY, the only thing that made seeing her T & A better was that she took part in several lesbian love scenes.
18 Dianna Agron - “Bare”
One of many people who has made several appearances in the hit musical series Glee, Dianna Agron appeared in an impressive seventy-four episodes of the show. Also memorable for her recurring parts in shows like Heroes and Veronica Mars, it is safe to say that she has some series nerd cred. On top of all of that, movies like The Hunters, I Am Number Four, and The Family all relied on her acting skills to varying degrees. Seen without her top in the movie Bare, just like our previous entry, she had a lesbian lover in that film which is a trend we wholeheartedly endorse.
17 Elle Macpherson - “Sirens” & “A Girl Thing”
In history, there have been a select few people who can accurately describe themselves as supermodels. One such person is Elle Macpherson, who earned that distinction through coveted gigs like appearing in the pages of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Also a fledgling actress since the year 1990, she has made appearances in shows like Friends on top of being cast in films like Jane Eyre as well as Batman & Robin. Seen nude in A Girl Thing and Sirens, in the latter film, she played one of several women who posed in the nude for an artist which meant that we saw practically every inch of her.
16 Eliza Dushku - “The Alphabet Killer” & “Banshee”
One of several actors who came to prominence through working with Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku gained a lot of fans when she played Faith in the shows Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Moving on to movies like Bring It On, The New Guy, as well as Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, for a few years, she was a big movie star. Still mostly seen as a TV star, she was a part of series like Dollhouse, Leap Year, and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. A crossover actress, it makes sense that she has shown her rear in the show Banshee and briefly gone topless in the movie The Alphabet Killer.
15 Yvonne Strahovski - “Manhattan Night”
A testament to how much appearing in a beloved piece of fiction can do for an actor, Yvonne Strahovski became a big deal to a lot of people when she was cast in the show Chuck. Portraying CIA Agent Sarah Walker on the show, her character was a bada*s with a heart of gold that slowly but surely grew to love the titular character. Moving on to play another love interest of a character a show was named after, she would play Hannah McKay in the last seasons of Dexter. These days starring in the highly acclaimed and talked series The Handmaid’s Tale, she does a great job of playing someone we loathe but can’t help but empathize with occasionally. Shown on screen nude for the first time in 2016’s Manhattan Night, it provided her many fans with a view of her T & A that they may have missed out on to this day.
14 Molly Ringwald - “Malicious”
A charter member of the much-discussed Brat Pack, during her heyday in the eighties, Molly Ringwald seemed to be a part of almost every film with younger stars. Seen in movies like The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Pick-Up Artist during the decade, she reached the zenith of her career at the time. Still well-known to millions of her longtime fans in the intervening years, she has been cast in movies and shows like The Stand, Betsy’s Wedding, Not Another Teen Movie, The Outer Limits, and Riverdale. Someone who people had a crush on back in the day, despite that, she was never seen as much of a s*x symbol. Once you see her topless in the movie Malicious, however, you’ll start to believe that she deserved to be lusted after a lot more.
13 Lea Thompson - “All The Right Moves”
Lea Thompson, like all of the stars of Back to the Future, seems like she will always be most associated with that series of films which is actually not a bad thing. Still, you’re missing out if you haven’t paid attention to her other work in movies like SpaceCamp, Howard the Duck, and Spy School, on top of the sitcom Caroline in the City that lasted for four years. A beautiful redhead who is most associated with a more innocent time, that is a shame since it has caused some to ignore how alluring she actually is. If you question that at all, then we encourage you to check her out in All the Right Moves where she exposes pretty much all of her and proves that she almost has a perfect body.
12 Ellen Page - “The Tracey Fragments,” “Into The Forest,” & “Tallulah”
An actress who seemed to come out of nowhere to give an astonishing performance in the movie Hard Candy, ever since then, we’ve watched her continue to mature as an artist and person. Also a part of movies like the X-Men franchise, An American Crime, Juno, Inception, Super, and My Life as a Zucchini, Ellen Page’s career has been fascinating to watch. Standing at only five feet one, this small actress has shown that she packs a lot of passion in her body which we enjoy getting the chance to see. Someone who has appeared in a long list of hit films, she has appeared topless on screen in three films but many people have no idea since none of them were traditional hits.
11 Ashley Greene - “Rogue”
We’re just going to say it. We are totally shocked that Ashley Greene isn’t a much larger star than she is today. A truly gorgeous woman whose body is one that it’s safe to say is coveted by many people, she also has a truly likable energy whenever she appears on the screen. Best known for her role as Alice Cullen in the much beloved and reviled Twilight series of films, she is the best part of the series, if you ask us. Appearing topless onscreen for the first time in 2016 while appearing on the show Rogue, if you haven’t seen the scenes in question, let us tell you that her chest does not disappoint.
10 Katie Holmes - “The Gift”
Stealing the hearts of millions of teens when she played Joey Potter on the show Dawson’s Creek, the intelligence and independence she brought to the character helped her stand out. Next making the jump to the big screen, Katie Holmes was a part of films like Disturbing Behavior, Go, Wonder Boys, Phone Booth, and Batman Begins. Stepping away from the acting world to a large degree during her marriage with Tom Cruise, fans of her rejoiced when she started acting more in recent years. Still, many of them likely have no idea that she showed her breasts as part of a little-seen drama called The Gift in the least disappointing nude scene ever.
9 Sarah Silverman - “Take This Waltz” & “I Smile Back”
The only person on this list who is not known first and foremost for being an actress, Sarah Silverman became a star due to being a stand-up comedian. Prone to saying things that are shocking to many, her edgy humor and comedy timing has resulted in her cultivating a passionate fan base. Also a fledgling actor, she has worked on movies like There’s Something About Mary, The Way of the Gun, School of Rock, and Wreck-It Ralph. Seen full frontal nude while showering in the movie Take This Waltz, alongside fellow star Michelle Williams, she would go on to show her chest again in front of a mirror in the film I Smile Back.
8 Minka Kelly - “Papa Hemingway In Cuba”
An American actress who became a known entity when she played a part in the acclaimed series Friday Night Lights, Minka Kelly has been consistently employed ever since. Also seen in the shows Parenthood and Charlie’s Angels, on top of all of that, she was a part of movies like The Roommate and The Butler, the latter of which cast her as Jackie Kennedy. Well-known for her looks on top of her acting skills, the greatest testament to how attractive she is was when she was named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire Magazine in 2010. Making her nude debut in 2016 when she played a part in the movie Papa Hemingway in Cuba, the world got to see her rear end for the first time when her character went skinny-dipping.
7 Neve Campbell - “I Really Hate My Job” & “When Will I Be Loved”
One of the stars of the acclaimed series Party of Five during her teen years, Neve Campbell was a major part of the reason why the prime time drama worked. Going on to find even bigger stardom as the protagonist in the Scream series of films that changed the horror genre, she can rest assured that she starred in something that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Also seen in cult films like The Craft and Wild Things, these days, she can be proud of the fact that she landed a lead role in the acclaimed series House of Cards. Seen without her top on in the middle of a bar in the movie I Really Hate My Job, Neve was also seen in the shower from behind in the opening moments of another film she starred in, When Will I Be Loved.
6 Kristen Wiig - “Welcome To Me”
Best known as a comedy star, Kristen Wiig is one of many people whose time on Saturday Night Live showed her ability to create classic comedy characters which helped make her a star. Going on to appear in movies like Ghost Town, Whip It, Extract, MacGruber, and Bridesmaids, if we were in charge of casting a major movie, including her would be a total no-brainer. Playing someone with borderline personality disorder in the film Welcome to Me, a film that she produced as well, it provided her with an opportunity to flex her acting skills. Seen totally nude in the film, during the movie’s most memorable moment, the camera captured her completely nude from the front while walking through a casino.
5 Brie Larson - “Tanner Hall”
One of our favorite actresses in the world, if it were only up to us, Brie Larson would appear on our screens a whole lot more often. Seen in the show United States of Tara, she also starred in movies like 21 Jump Street, Short Term 12, The Spectacular Now, and Room, all of which were made infinitely better due to her inclusion. Someone who exudes elegance wherever she goes, just because she is an exquisite beauty, that does not stop her from being extremely sexy too. Included on this list because of a scene in the film Tanner Hall, in which she is shot without a top on, you can tell that she wasn’t meant to show a nipple; but one slipped into frame nevertheless.
4 Shailene Woodley - “Big Little Lies,” “Snowden,” “The Spectacular Now,” & “White Bird In A Blizzard”
Cast in the ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Shailene Woodley took the opportunity of her role and made the leap to feature films and international stardom. Breaking through to a new level when she was in The Descendants, she has had several hit movies since, including The Divergent Series. Also a highly touted actress, she starred in acclaimed films like The Spectacular Now and The Fault in Our Stars. Seen topless in three films and nude from behind in another one, you may think that many people realize she has appeared in the buff but none of these scenes came in a film that was seen by most people.
3 Lucy Hale - “Dude”
An actress and singer that has acquired a devoted fanbase, Lucy Hale was introduced to the world when she won American Juniors, which was a spin-off of American Idol. Still, despite her clear vocal chops, it is her ability to embody characters that have earned her the majority of her fame. Best known as one of the stars of Pretty Little Liars, she even won a People’s Choice Award for her work on the series. Taking off her top for a scene she shot for the film Dude which came out in 2017, viewers were greeted with a very welcome view of her chest in all its grandeur.
2 Julie Andrews - “Duet For One,” “Darling Lili,” & “S.O.B.”
From one actress and singer to another, this time, we are dealing with one of the most legendary performers in Hollywood history. Known for her work in musicals like Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, her work in family-friendly fare made the world see her as a sticky sweet woman. However, despite the perception many have of Julie Andrews, she actually has quite the appealing figure. Seen nude in three different films, it may come as a shock but let us tell you that she has boobs that many people would be quite jealous of.
1 Alison Brie - “GLOW”
We’re bookending this list with stars of Community, and we are overjoyed to be able to report that Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie have both revealed their breasts on the film. Arguably the more accomplished of the two actors, Alison also appeared in a show that was an even more acclaimed series, Mad Men. On top of that, she was a major part of movies like Get Hard, The Lego Movie, Sleeping With Other People, and How to Be Single. Recently cast in the lead role of the Netflix series, GLOW, that covers the story of a real-life over-the-top wrestling company, Alison seems to have given her all for the role. Almost completely altering her look to play the part, on top of that, she showed her breasts onscreen in the first episode, which actually included two nude scenes.
