There are lots of Hollywood movies and TV shows that feature sex scenes. Sometimes it’s absolutely unnecessary, but other times it’s needed to pass across the main point of the story.
Some celebrities are completely comfortable with stripping down on the big screen, while some just don’t feel comfortable with the world seeing everything.
Here, some celebrities who refuse to get naked on camera.
1. Blake Lively
Known for playing Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, Blake Lively told the Daily Mail in an interview that she won't be appearing nude in any film or TV show any time soon. Blake, who is also renowned for her squeaky-clean image had this to say about nude scenes:
“When I see nudity in movies, I am always distracted by it. I know that if I am watching a scene and someone has their boobs out, then that’s all I’m looking at — I can’t help it. I just don’t think that will ever be right for me.”
2. Anna Kendrick
Although Anna Kendrick seemed to be filmed naked in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, she actually used a body double. Kendrick revealed that she has a strict policy when it comes to her films and would not be willing to take off her clothes for any future role. She told The Telegraph:
"I will not do that... I am not criticizing people who do [nude scenes], but I plan to keep doing what I am doing and hope it keeps going good."
3. Jennifer Garner
This is what Jennifer Garner, the Peppermint star, had to say about her feelings on on-screen exposure:
“I will not be taking it all off!” She also insisted that there was “zero percent” chance that she would ever take her clothes off for a role, adding, “No, thank you. The world deserves better. Not interested.”
4. Jessica Alba
The mother-of-three says she has a good reason for not wanting to go naked on the big screen:
“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.”
5. Jessica Simpson
Mainly renowned for her music, Jessica Simpson has also appeared in films like Dukes Of Hazzard and Employee Of The Month, but you won't find her naked in any of those movies.
Back in 2010, she told Allure that nudity is totally off the table.
"I will never do nudity," Simpson said. "I don't care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know? I don't care if I frickin' get an Oscar for it, I'm not going to do it. Those accolades mean nothing to me."
6. Julia Roberts
The actress’ career has spanned across over thirty years, and while she has played a wide range of roles, the one thing she claims she won’t ever do in a film is to go nude. In a 2007 interview, she said:
“To act with my clothes on is performance. To act with my clothes off is a documentary.”
7. Kristen Bell
The popular Frozen star has a fanbase of kids, so it totally makes sense that she doesn’t want to bare it all on screen.
“I don’t show my crack! All the Mr Skins of the world are like, ‘Ooh, Kristen gets naked!’ I’m like, ‘Dream on!”
She told the media in her signature comedic manner.
8. Lena Headey
While her character did appear naked on Game of Thrones, it wasn’t Lena, it was a body double. The actress did the walk of shame with her head superimposed onto a body double. No shame here because none of it is about vanity for me — none of it — otherwise I couldn’t do it. It would be a hindrance.
9. Mandy Moore
Speaking on her desire to remain clothed in movies, Mandy Moore said:
“It would be completely uncomfortable to walk down the street and know that the person passing by had seen me without my clothes on. I’ve turned down several roles where the producers or directors or writers wouldn’t budge on that point.”
10. Mila Kunis
The beloved, That 70’s Show star is no stranger to sex scenes but won’t show everything off to everyone. She once wrote a brutal open letter about an anonymous Hollywood producer who told her she’d never work again in this town when she declined to pose half-naked on the cover of a magazine.
11. Rachel Bilson
The O.C. star nearly lost a role because of her unwillingness to go nude:
“Movies can be sexy or sexual without showing things. It’s almost a deal breaker. The movie was rated R, and they like to put in nudity wherever they can, but I’m pretty strong willed and believe it can be avoided.”
12. Sarah Jessica Parker
The Sex and The City star famously had a no-nudity clause in her contract when it came to the sex part:
“I’ve always had [a no nudity clause], 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 no-nudity.”
13. Reese Witherspoon
The award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon might have done so many flirty roles in the past, but one thing she wouldn’t do is strip entirely for the camera. She once said:
“If actresses take their clothes off, they objectify themselves. I am flabbergasted by how many legitimate actresses do it.”
14. Paris Hilton
You might have seen the Hotel Heiress Paris Hilton’s sex tape titled One Night in Paris go viral and wonder what her name is doing on this list, but she said to WENN that she had turned down a role to pose nude for Playboy.
15. Megan Fox
The fierce action actress Megan Fox might be very daring in the roles she takes on, and seeing her strip then fight afterward might not be such a surprise, but she has said, not only would she not strip for a movie role, but she wouldn’t record a sex tape either, adding:
“That’s the last thing I want to see — what I look like having sex.”
