celebrity quotes on nudity


“I don’t really stress too much about being out there. There’s nothing left to catch me doing. You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I’ll just fucking put them up.”

Marie Claire, September 2015 issue


“I’m totally comfortable with nudity. I’m not sure it empowers me as an actress or anything, but if I’m going to do a movie with sex scenes, then I’m going to be naked, because I don’t know about you, but I don’t have sex with bras and panties on.”

Glamour UK, April 2015


“I do everything completely naked.”

Interview Magazine, January 2011

30 Of The Best Celebrity Quotes On NudityEMMA WATSON

“I have no plans to do anything for the sake of it, or to shock people. I might be willing to take my clothes off for a Bernardo Bertolucci film, if it was a part that really made sense as part of my character. […] I’d hate to be so tactical. I’m not just getting my kit off for anyone.”


“Girls look so much better in lingerie or a tee shirt and leave the rest up to the imagination.”

Cosmopolitan, March 2014 issue


“I would have never thought that I would have ever gotten to a place in my life where I would have felt comfortable doing that.  I basically went from hating every single inch of my body to working on myself and trying to figure out ways to love myself, love the skin that I’m in.”

On posing nude and without makeup for Vanity Fair, October 2015


“I don’t go, like, ‘Oooh, I can’t wait to rip off my clothes and jump around in front of everybody.’ … And I was certainly not comfortable when I had to depict murdering someone — violently killing someone. I am infinitely less comfortable with the fact that the public is more concerned with whether or not I was nude or gay than whether or not I was a f*cking serial killer. Excuse me very much, but where are your priorities, people?”

On filming Basic Instinct to Playboy, December 1992


“People have seen my butt. I’ve shown the top of my butt, the bottom of my butt. I’m not opposed to doing nudity, as long as it’s part of the story. I’ll do whatever has to get done if it’s the right thing.”

Marie Claire, November 2014 issue


“I don’t mind nudity as long as it’s necessary to the story. I mean it’s a bit weird because you’re like naked in a room full of strangers, but we started telling really sick jokes which helped.”

Sydney Morning Herald, March 2008


“From the start of my career, I’ve been naked. My first job was a commercial for SAS airlines. In the spot, I wake up in a pink room next to a beautiful blonde girl and get out of bed naked. From that point forward, it’s been in all of my contracts: He must be naked in this film.”

W Magazine, February 2012


“At this point the crew is so bored by seeing me naked because it happens so much. At first there was like mild titillation, and now it’s just like big ol’ Italian guys checking their iPhones, acting like there isn’t a pair of live breasts in the room.”

On Chelsea Lately, 2012


“I just love being as naked as possible all the time. It feels really natural to me.”

Out, August 2011


“If the world wouldn’t persecute me, I’d take nude pictures every day of the week.”

Vogue, September 2010 issue


“I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.”

On getting naked the moment he gets home, to Elle, July 2013


“I tell you, you get your penis out once, and everyone expects it in the rest of your movies.”

AskMen, June 2011


“I think in some ways you have to sort of look at the nudity, and you assume it’s going to be like a screenshot for someone, so you kind of have to weigh the value of the risk that you’re taking. Is this gratuitous? Is this a vanity project?”

At an Under the Skin press conference, April 2014


“I like nudity. Kanye always says, ‘Dress sexier.’ He’s always encouraging.”

LOVE magazine, Issue 13


“I’ve never been scared of being naked in pictures, but I wouldn’t do naked for naked’s sake.”

W magazine, September 2015


“In drama, if a nude scene forwards a story or is shot in a way that adds insight into characters, I’m perfectly fine with it. Sometimes explicit scenes are required and make sense for the characters/story, as they do in Westeros. If it’s gratuitous for gratuitous sake, then I will discuss with a director on how to make it more subtle. In either case, like a good Mother of Dragons, I’m always in control.”

Instagram, September 2015


“I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have. For me “risky” is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”

Glamour, March 2014


“My mother would kill me if I posed nude! My mother raised me with certain standards.”

Mondanite Magazine, April 2012


“I used to love being naked. My parents would have to dress me because I’d just run around the supermarket and take off all my clothes. It was fun. Freedom. Liberation!”

W Magazine, September 2014


“I got a little shy. I was really surprised that I felt that exposed,”

On her nude scene in Beowulf at a press conference in November 2007


“I see a 16-year-old now, and to ask her to take her clothes off would feel really weird. But they were like, If you don’t do it, then we’re not going to book you again. So I’d lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it. I never felt very comfortable about it.”

Vanity Fair, December 2012


“Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”

On her leaked nude photos to Vanity Fair, November 2014


“I’m nude quite often, so it wasn’t a big deal for me.”

At a press conference for Carol at Cannes Film Festival


“I look like the people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite – of course I don’t – and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great. On a deeper, subconscious level, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen. It’s partly because I do believe that it’s right for the character and it’s right for the story but it’s also knowing that not many people do that, actually – and not just that, but I’m a normal person.”

The Sun, July 2012


“I’m a very serious actor when it comes to nudity. I’m like Meryl Streep.”

Playboy, April 2009


“Normally I’d say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace, Scott Thorson, in Behind the Candelabra. I mean, it’s tastefully done. Steven Soderbergh directed it, and Michael Douglas plays Liberace. But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.”

Playboy, December 2012
