Similar to Kim Kardashian’s ‘claim to fame’ with that infamous sex tape, some stars no longer want the reputation of ‘that actress who always gets her kit off.’ Some of these Oscar–winning celebrities can’t believe they kept getting away with it, and are still accredited with the acting skills of someone who deserves an academy award.
To my surprise, after Kate Winslet earned several mentions in Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar skit, “We Saw Your Boobs,” the star of Titanic has had second (and third) thoughts about all the of the body-baring scenes she’s previously participated in. At least Winslet is not alone in feeling this way about breaking her vows to keep her clothes on.
Another actress who participated in many nude scenes throughout her career is Natalie Portman. More than just nudity, Portman has been a part of many movies that display her true talents and may make viewers question her sanity. “I’m really sorry I didn’t listen to my intuition,” Portman told Elle Magazine, but “I don’t really have regrets. It’s more that I don’t like misappropriation of stuff, like when you create something as part of a story and then a piece of it ends up on a porn site.”
Is the big-boobed bay-watch babe, Pamela Anderson, who as been displaying her goods on national television for years, suddenly having doubts? You got that right! After posing for Playboy, engaging in several nude scenes, and that infamous video with her ex-husband Tommy Lee, Pamela admits that she is finally experiencing regret.
If you’re thinking, “it’s about time,” then you and I are on the same page. And if you’re thinking, “If I looked like that I would pose naked too,” then we’re also on the same page. Although it took longer than most, this mother of two finds discomfort in her old ways, and frequently receives ridicule from her down-to-earth children.
Women aren’t the only ones who bare it all for the camera. Twilight star, Taylor Lautner, confesses to Elle Magazine that he worked hard to get in shape for the role, but that’s not all he worked hard for. “My motivation was the movie and the fans, but I don’t want to become known as just a body. If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again, but I guess that’s not very realistic.” And I guess that Taylor Lautner doesn’t have a mind of his own.
As these stars, and many others just like them, you would think they would learn from their mistakes the first time. It’s never easy to be in the public eye, but it is especially difficult when celebrities such as Winslet, Portman, Anderson, and Lautner have trouble trusting their gut.
We’ll see if MacFarlane, leakage of scenes on a porn site, or beloved children will have any impact these on actors’ future decisions, but sometimes, it’s about the fame and for lack of a better word – exposure.Tags: Exposure, Kate Winslet, Kim Kardashian, natalie portman, Nudity, pop culture
