It is pretty self-evident that the power to give people the opportunities to become famous all seem to have one major requirement when it comes to most big stars. They want the people that they promote in the main roles of their movies, shows, and on their stages to be extremely good-looking. It makes sense since most of us will admit that we take pleasure in watching the beautiful people do their thing.
As a result of many famous people being very hot and consistently placed in front of us, it seems likely that over time, we will come to find them very attractive. When you then consider the fact that it’s human imperative that we desire to see people we find attractive in the nude, it seems pretty obvious why nude scenes can be hugely anticipated. That is why it is totally gratifying when these scenes live up to our expectations. Coming to that realization is what inspired us to put together this list of the 21 hottest scenes from the 2010’s where celebrities bared all.
In order for a scene to be considered for inclusion on this list, it first has to feature someone who is a known entity at least to a sizable group of people. It doesn’t matter if they are a household name or what avenue they took in order to get there, which means actors, musicians, and athletes were up for grabs. The only other requirement is that they stem from a work of entertainment. As such, a video of them in real life was not in the running.
21 Rosabell Laurenti Sellers - “Game Of Thrones”
One of the least known actresses on this list, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers isn’t a household name by any means but she is quickly becoming a known entity among her growing fans. The star of an animated show called Mia and Me, in which she plays Mia, she has starred in a well-received series for three seasons. However, her greatest claim to fame so far is her character from Game of Thrones where she plays one of a group of sisters known as The Sand Snakes. Not featured too extensively so far, the reason she has made such a big mark is the nude scene she took part in. Playing a young woman who takes pride in her sexiness, she revealed her chest in a scene where she used it as a weapon, which we may just volunteer for if we got that view in real life.
20 Shailene Woodley - “White Bird In A Blizzard”
A young actress who has always been very good at what she does and seems observant and thoughtful in her craft, we’ve always been interested to see where Shailene Woodley goes next. Although her resulting films have been mixed-in quality, we’ve been enthused to see her work in movies like The Descendants, The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars, and Snowden. That said, it is one of her movies we thought was less successful (story-wise) that resulted in her conclusion here. An overwrought tale, White Bird in a Blizzard didn’t blow us away, but when Shailene dropped her towel and showed her chest, she sure did.
19 Olivia Munn - "Magic Mike"
First coming to prominence when she acted as the co-host of the show Attack of the Show, from the beginning, it was clear that she had an infectious personality we couldn’t get enough of. Moving on to become an accomplished actress, Olivia Munn has since appeared in The Newsroom, a show with many fans, and movies like Ride Along 2 and X-Men: Apocalypse. A major part of many films and shows, it was a tiny role in Magic Mike, a movie known for barely dressed dancing men, that surprisingly earned her place here. Seen getting dressed after a night with Channing Tatum’s character, his character was being set up in the scene, but all we could happily stare at was her topless chest.
18 Léa Seydoux & Adèle Exarchopoulos - “Blue Is The Warmest Color”
A pair of French actresses you may not know, they are a very talented pair that, if nothing else, became well-known for appearing in an "intimate" scene together. On top of that, in the case of Léa Seydoux, she has quite the resume between appearing in movies like Inglourious Basterds, Robin Hood, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and many more. Playing a pair of young women that fall for one another in a beautifully told story that is delicate, smart, and realistic, for many people, the world the film created is of little importance. Instead, most of the things you hear about this film relate to its "hot" scene which people were so blown away by that many believe it to have featured them actually getting busy. While we feel it is a shame that the quality of the film is often ignored, we have to agree about how stunning and sexy that one sequence was.
17 Lizzy Caplan - “Masters Of S*x”
An actress who spent the first several years of her career known for her comedy chops, it was clear that Lizzy Caplan is very good at her job since she certainly earned our laughs again and again. Also lovable in those roles, including shows like Party Down and The Class, as well as movies like Mean Girls and Hot Tub Time Machine, we always knew we wanted to see her more. A very beautiful woman, despite that, we never realized just how glorious it would be when we saw more of her. Possessing one of the best chests we’ve seen on film, she’s been nude a lot now, especially on the show Masters of S*x. A show about doctors trying to understand the deed, in one scene, she was topless while pleasuring herself for science and that visual was tantalizing, to say the least.
16 Chanel Iman - “Dope”
One of the most sought-after models in the world at one time, Chanel Iman had enough of an impact on that world that she was tapped to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel, which is a very impressive feat. After all, she was tapped for a role that is one of the most sought-after gigs in the entire modeling industry. Opting to enter the acting world, she has appeared in the film Mad Families and the film this scene is a part of, Dope. Featured in an extended scene in which she is topless, seeing a woman as gorgeous as her with little clothes on is always going to make us happy.
15 Anne Hathaway - “Love & Other Drugs”
Early on in her career, it seemed like Anne Hathaway would have a pretty innocent and lightweight film career. How wrong we were to think that. Going on to give incredible performances in movies like Rachel Getting Married, Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, and Les Misérables, any doubt that she was a substantial artist went out the window. Then, our other perception was blown out of the water with a role like the one in Love & Other Drugs in which she was seen nude time and time again. While we could have chosen multiple moments from this movie, the winner in our heart was when she knocked on the door of the main character and upon entering his apartment was seen already in the buff. Naked out of nowhere and ultimately embarrassed as they weren’t alone, the idea of her showing up like that on our doorstep is the type of fantasy fodder that stays with you.
14 Rosario Dawson - “Trance”
The idea that Rosario Dawson has never been named the Sexiest Woman Alive by a magazine like Esquire is something that just blows us away. In fact, if this list was more focused on hot women that were in the buff onscreen and not about the scene in question, she would have taken our top spot. Still, it was hard to put her lower on this list since this moment is incredible. But it is so short that we felt like we had too. Seen in the film Trance nude from head to toe walking directly at the camera, for the brief moment of her walk, every inch of the front of her hairless body was visible. Need we say more?
13 Natalie Dormer - “Game Of Thrones”
An actress who was a journeyman of sorts prior to being cast in Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer was previously best known for a short but recurring role in The Tudors. On top of that, she also had a small role in Captain America: The First Avenger which shows that her career was on the rise but it hit a new level shortly thereafter. Then, she was cast as Margaery Tyrell, a character that stood out from the start, and has since received major roles in major movies including the Hunger Games franchise. If you aren’t a fan of Game of Thrones, then let us tell you that she turned heads because she showed her chest in an extended and awe-inspiring scene that millions of fans, us included, loved.
12 Kirsten Dunst - “Melancholia”
At one time, Kirsten Dunst seemed like a Hollywood “it girl” who appeared to be on the shortlist for every coveted role out there. Seen in movies like The Virgin Suicides, Bring It On, the Spider-Man franchise, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and more, she had become a pretty huge star. Like many big celebrities before her, it wasn’t until her momentum started to dwindle that audiences were greeted with a view of her in the buff. Seen without a stitch of clothes in the 2011 film Melancholia, if you are a fan of seeing beautiful women in the buff on the big screen and haven’t seen this scene yet, then let me tell you that it is required viewing.
11 Thandie Newton - “Westworld”
From the moment we first saw Thandie Newton on film, it was clear that she was a stunning woman we found very sexy but seemed like she was somewhat above the fray. Known for roles in films like Beloved, Mission: Impossible 2, Crash, Run Fatboy Run, and W to name only a few, she is adept at playing a lot of roles but always seemed like someone who was very private. Then, she was cast as one of the lead roles in the show Westworld as Maeve Millay a robotic madam and out of nowhere, our dreams were answered. Appearing completely in the buff in multiple scenes where she is being inspected by technical workers, the view is every bit as impressive as we ever thought it could be.
10 Alison Brie - “GLOW”
One of the stars of the cult comedy Community, like her co-stars, when the show began airing, Alison Brie seems to have instantly developed a sizable and passionate fanbase. Able to make the jump to the film scene, she has also been in well-received movies like The Lego Movie, Sleeping with Other People, Get Hard, and several more. Also known for playing a pivotal supporting part in the show Mad Men, Netflix seems to like her as she is a part of two of their shows—BoJack Horseman and GLOW. Much to the glee of her many fans that love her looks as well as her charisma and acting skills, they finally received the opportunity to see her topless in the first episode of that latter show twice. For us, it is a scene where she is doing the deed in bed and seen from the side that wins out due to the abandon with which she performed the moment.
9 Lindsay Lohan - “The Canyons”
A very controversial figure in pop culture, at one time, Lindsay Lohan seemed poised to take Hollywood by storm. Then, her behavior courted controversy and her lack of professionalism seems to not have done her any favors and only caused against her being cast in films. Unfortunately, as a result, it seems like the days of movies like Mean Girls and Freaky Friday may be permanently gone for her. The only silver lining for fans of Lindsay is that she showed off her body for the first time on film in 2013’s The Canyons. Revealing that her chest is as large and lovely as we always thought they might be once and for all, the movie was destroyed by critics but still has value in our hearts for that alone.
8 Taylor Schilling & Laura Prepon - “Orange Is The New Black”
Prior to being cast as the lead in Orange is the New Black, we had never heard of Taylor Schilling before in our lives. On the other hand, we spent years inviting Laura Prepon into our homes, sometimes on a weekly basis, as one of the stars of That '70s Show. However, we may have known Laura in the past but when she entered a shower and began making out with Taylor while both were topless, our memories of her went right out the window. Can you blame us if we can’t remember the sweetheart she played in the past when she just took part in a scene that got us going to our core?
7 Elizabeth Olsen - “Oldboy”
Starting out her career known as the younger sister of the Olsen Twins, these days, it is Elizabeth Olsen who is the most discussed member of the clan. At first known for her roles in indie dramas like Martha Marcy May Marlene and Very Good Girls, today, she is known for playing the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, in our view, the first role she received that showed that the studios saw her as a future star was in the 2013 American remake of the beloved South-Korean film Oldboy. Taking part in an "intimate" scene that is complicated, to say the least, we’re going to ignore the plot around it and only focus on the physicality. Entering a room with the film’s lead wearing nothing but a towel, it only took a moment for her to drop it, revealing her magnificent chest, and the scene that follows is filled with passion in the best ways possible.
6 Alexandra Daddario - “True Detective”
There aren’t too many circumstances in which an actor became famous strictly due to a nude scene, but there is no doubt in our mind that that happened for Alexandra Daddario. Playing a supporting role in the first season of True Detective, she was quite good but it was the moment that earned her a place on the list that became the talk of the town. Going on to be cast in one of the lead roles in the Baywatch movie reboot, the film may have been poorly received but it was a very desirable gig. Seen in the buff during the aforementioned series, when she undressed, her body was so out of this world that rewind buttons around the world were burned out.
5 Scarlett Johansson - “Under The Skin”
One of the most popular and sought-after actresses alive today, Scarlett Johansson’s career has millions of her peers fraught with jealousy. A star of films like Ghost World, Lost in Translation, The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and also a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve watched her career with great interest for many years. Immensely lusted after throughout the world, it is safe to say that millions of people regularly wished they could see what she was working with. Thankfully, people like us were happy to learn that they would get just that after Under the Skin was released in 2013. Revealing every part of herself to the camera in one scene with a mirror, this list would have been incomplete if we left it off.
4 Jessica Paré - “Hot Tub Time Machine”
An actress that, to date, is best known for playing the second wife of Don Draper on the show Mad Men, Jessica Paré has actually accomplished a lot over her acting career. Also seen in movies like Stardom, Lost and Delirious, Wicker Park, Suck, and Brooklyn, she has proven her ability to captivate her audience both on the big and small screen. Of course, if you ask us, we were most compelled to focus in on her when she appeared topless in the movie Hot Tub Time Machine. Revealing her large chest and even sponging herself off in one moment, if you like women and your heartbeat doesn’t speed up while watching this, there must be something wrong with you.
3 Eva Green - “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”
Sometimes, an entertainer comes along that feels like she oozes appeal in a way that few people we’ve seen ever have; including the likes of Angelina Jolie and Madonna. We’re happy to report that Eva Green belongs on that short list. A beautiful woman with a body that doesn’t quit, when we sat down to put together this list, we knew she’d appear on it. Actually, our only question was whether it was going to be for 300: Rise of an Empire or Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Opting to go with the latter of the two, the fact that we loved seeing her large chest in front of us in stunning black and white, especially in the scene with her in a pool, is what made that our final choice.
2 Nathalie Emmanuel - “Game Of Thrones”
Another example of a woman that was not a star by any stretch of the imagination prior to joining the cast of Game of Thrones, it certainly seems like that series is one hell of a star-maker. Capitalizing on the momentum her role in the show granted her, Nathalie Emmanuel was able to be cast in big franchises like Maze Runner and the Fast and Furious series. While we think that she has ample charisma and has proven herself capable of saying a lot without speaking much at all, we’d be lying if tried to pretend that her looks didn’t play a large part in her career status. A stunning beauty that was proven to have a body to die for when she appeared in the buff on Game of Thrones, that moment is seared in our brains and isn’t going anywhere soon, much to our delight.
1 Amanda Seyfried And Julianne Moore - “Chloe”
We’re just going to get this out of the way. Chloe, the film this scene came from, was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009. Still, since it went wide in 2010, we still think it counts. Also, the fact that this scene features two women that are undeniably quite famous being intimate with one another pushed us to rethink our rules a little. An erotic thriller in which Amanda Seyfried’s character seduces Julianne Moore’s character, the resulting moment where we see the fruits of her labor is hot enough to make it our clear top pick for this list. If you question that at all, just imagine what it would look like and then try to argue its placement.
