Nudity - they say is the shortest route to fame in Hollywood. There is no dearth of actresses who have posed nude necessarily and unnecessarily in films. But at the same time there are actresses who have maintained their dignity by not baring it all at any cost.
Alicia Silverstone who debuted in a feature film, entitled The Crush, playing a teenager obsessed with an older man, Silverstone refused to pose nude in the film and a body double was hired for "behind" shots. Actually, Silverstone refuses to pose nude until today.
Claudia Schiffer too refused to pose nude. But the rude paparazzi went to great lengths to catch her without clothes and finally caught her naked while she was sunbathing.
Lydia Cornell, best known for her role in the 80's hit ABC sitcom "Too Close for Comfort" as the funny and sexy Sara Rush to this day, refused to pose nude as she said that it was a moral and ethical issue for her. But still one can find quite a few naked pictures of her on the net. I don't know how.
And now the new chick round the corner is Jessica Alba who says that she is ready to do nude scenes but her daddy holds back.
To pose nude or not, I guess, is a strong personal and moral issue. But I have no hard feelings for all those who have the guts to do it.
