I mentioned last week that I’ve been watching this show called True Blood. I also saw a movie called Friends with Benefits this past weekend. The common theme between the two?
Both have nudity.
The nudity in the movie was brief–a quick glimpse of some buttocks. In True Blood, there’s full nudity–mostly female, but some male. And every time I see nudity in movies and TV, I can’t help but think, “What do their parents think?”
It goes beyond parents–if you’re naked on TV, you will forever have your naked body parts available for anyone to see. Forever. Not that there’s any shame in being naked. I’m naked all the time. Just not in public.
Some movie stars choose not to ever be naked on the big screen, going as far as to use body doubles if a scene truly requires a butt cheek or two. But others take the plunge and embrace it, like Anna Paquin on True Blood.
So I’m curious: If you were offered a part on a TV show (HBO) or a movie, a part that would give you money, fame, etc, would you take it if the part involved some nudity?
