Nudity? 10 Celebrities Who Won’t Get Naked on Camera

There are a lot of movies and television shows that feature nudity. Sometimes it’s gratuitous, but other times it’s necessary to tell the story. There have even been movie scenes that helped break taboos in society. But still there are some actors who just don’t feel comfortable stripping down at work. Here 10 celebrities who refuse to get naked on camera.

1. Sarah Jessica Parker

Since she played Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City you might assume she has been nude on screen plenty of times. However, all of the other actresses on the show were naked at times, but Parker had it in her contract that she would never have to take her clothes off on screen.

“Before I even started filming Sex And The City,” the actress told Sun, “I had a ‘no nudity’ clause inserted in my contract. By then, I felt no sense of guilt. I knew that I would not feel comfortable with nudity. I was thrilled that the other cast members could accept it and did it really well.”

The actress also didn’t feel comfortable with other things that were featured on the show. “I was not comfortable with nude scenes, scenes with sex toys or vulgar language — so I did not do any. … My character, Carrie, kissed a lot of men — but that’s as far as it went. I had the maturity to control my panic about the whole series and what it meant.”

The actress has had some sexy roles, including an international spy on Alias and the leather-clad Elektra in Daredevil. But you’ll never see her naked body on the screen. While doing press for The Invention of Lying, she shut down any chance of her shedding all her clothes. “I will not be taking it all off!” the actress told MTV. “Zero percent. No, thank you. The world deserves better. Not interested.”

3. Ricky Gervais

There are many funny men that are willing to strip down for a laugh. But this comedian isn’t one of them! When asked if he would ever go nude for work he flat out said no. “There’s no chance of me doing it!” Gervais told MTV. But that doesn’t mean you’ll never see his characters naked. He said he wouldn’t do it “unless I had a stunt one.”

4. Anna Kendrick

The actress has a pretty young following due to roles in Twilight and Pitch Perfect. So once she started taking on more adult roles she was asked if she would ever show it all. “Emphatically, no. I will not do that,” she said according to the Telegraph. “I have been lucky because I have not been pigeonholed into the teenage movie category. I am not criticizing people who do that [nude scenes] but I plan to keep doing what I am doing and hope it keeps going good.”

5. Neal McDonough

The actor was supposed to be in the TV show Scoundrels, but he was fired after three days of filming. The reason is because he flat out refused to do any sex scenes for the show. Sadly he didn’t have a clause in the contract saying no nudity, so he didn’t have much ground to stand on. The actor is reportedly a devout Catholic and is against intimate scenes, according to the Salon.

6. Mila Kunis

The actress isn’t afraid to do romantic movies and sex scenes. She did many of them in her movie, Friends with Benefits. But you’ll probably never get to see her fully naked in these kind of scenes. “I showed side boob,” the actress told Allure. “I don’t need to show ass. You get one or the other. You don’t get both.” Well, that’s one way to get the job done.

7. Julia Roberts

The actress has had a long career doing rom-coms. One of her most notable roles was Vivian, the prostitute with a heart of gold in Pretty Woman. But she has been, and probably always will be, against nudity in her acting. Why? Well she has a family! “You know it’s not really what I do,” the actress said, according to Daily Mail. “So if you are going ask me to do it, you have to expect it to be toned down. You know, as a mum of three, I feel like that.”

The funny lady was pressured to go nude for laughs but repeatedly stood her ground. She worked with Sacha Baron Cohen in Grimsby for which he repeatedly asked for her to strip down. “Every single day he’s like, ‘Rebel, can you just go naked in this scene?‘” the actress told KIIS FM. “And I’m like, ‘No!'” Apparently he wanted nudity because of how it had worked in his past films. “Every day he’s like, ‘Just go naked, it will be funny. Remember in Borat when I did that naked scene? It was hilarious.'” She then continued, “On the last day I thought I’d obviously won the argument, and he got a body double to do the naked scene.”

9. Hilary Duff

She started off on the Disney Channel, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be shedding her clean image anytime soon. “If I do a movie I want to be myself,” the actress told Telegraph Seven. “I don’t want to take my top off or anything. In the States, it seems it’s the trend to turn 18 or 19 and then take your shirt off and do something crazy, and I don’t know what comes after that.”

10. Megan Fox

There is no doubt that the actress has major sex appeal, and her characters usually ooze that. But don’t bank on ever seeing her nude on screen. “As of right now I can’t ever imagine myself doing nudity in a film,” the actress told MTV. She then continued to say that she feels like her body is all that she has left to keep for herself.

“People take everything from you when you’re in this business. Your anonymity is stripped from you, they invade every part of you: your personal life, your relationships. Everything you say gets judged, everything you do gets judged,” Megan explained. “Literally all I have left are my private parts, and I don’t want to also share them with the world.”
