Nude scenes on camera or in movies are considered “modest” nowadays. Nudity in movies has different purposes. Sometimes it is itself the title of a movie and sometimes it is used in the development, the building of an actor or actress for their career. Fame is also specifically a purpose for nudity.
It is a complex debate when it comes to designer’s costumes and the choreography. Actors and actresses have long pep talked about how the making of sex scenes look realistic on screen are decidedly not as it seems to be. It’s a difficult job to look as natural as possible especially in sex scenes.
Certainly, many celebrities have preferred to pass. Stars like Kim Kardashian and Ratajkowski have been promoting and succeeding being naked in selfies lately, but there are still quite a few actresses who refuse to do nude scenes for different reasons: some celebrities feel inappropriate as being parents of young kids, they think it is unprofessional and don’t like the philosophy of beauty in nude scenes, or they just simply feel uncomfortable stripping down for a movie and TV shows.
Take the example of Sarah Jessica Parker. She had a separate contract when she worked on “Sex and The City”. Her contract was strictest of all the other actresses. From Megan Fox to Julia Roberts, read on to see why these stars refused to do naked scenes and how do they feel about showing off their private parts on the screen.
1. Sarah Jessica Parker
Unlike other famous stars, Sarah Jessica Parker in 2016, stated to the Hollywood Reporter, “I’ve always had one, and it’s apropos of absolutely nothing. Some people have a perks list and they are legendary. They have to have white candles in their room. I don’t have a crazy list like that. I’ve just always had [a no-nudity clause].”
2. Julia Roberts
As a mother of three children, the famous celebrity Julia Roberts isn’t interested to do nudes on-screen. In 2009, she told the Daily Mail that “you know it’s not really what I do, so if you are going ask me to do it, you have to expect it to be toned down. You know, as a [mother] of three, I feel like that.”
3. Jessica Alba
Alba’s justification for her no-nudity clause is a straight one, “I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the picture.”She disclosed in 2014.
4. Megan Fox
The actress well-known as a sex symbol in the film industry revealed to MTV News in 2009. “I can’t ever imagine myself doing nudity in a film,” as she continued stating, “It lives forever, especially now, with the Internet. I just can’t. I just can’t…Literally, all I have left are my private parts and I don’t want to also share them with the world. I’d like to keep them private. That’s why they’re called that!”
5. Katy Perry
Pop-star singer, Katy Perry has unique views as she told “I’m like a burlesque girl. I definitely won’t be doing a Playboy spread, but I will be doing a kind of Dita Von Teese style.”
6. Emma Watson
Popular British actress who professionally played “Hermione Granger” role in the Harry Potter film series and an outspoken feminist has a reputation to uphold, “I’m not going to get my kit off or snort cocaine in a film, just to leave Hermione behind. I don’t want everyone to forget me as Hermione. I’m really proud of her.”
7. Jennifer Garner
In 2009, during a press tour for “The Invention of Lying,” she told MTV News, “I will not be taking it all off! No thank you. The world deserves better. Not interested.”
