She may have three decades of industry experience under her belt, but there is something MacDowell has only recently flirted with onscreen: disrobing. "I'm not one to take my clothes off in a movie," MacDowell recently told The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that she shot her first nude scene for 2017's Love After Love — at age 59. "Not that I'm a prude or anything, but I think I grew up in a time where most actresses would get body doubles."
"After all of that worrying about taking my clothes off, it didn't even affect me in the least, seeing myself naked," she told the outlet of the experience. "What affected me more was to see how sad I looked. The only reason I could do that is because I know that sadness. That to me made me feel more vulnerable than being naked. It had no effect on me, being naked, which is fascinating."

The actress recently opened up to PEOPLE about shooting her first Gucci Guilty campaign with Chris Evans, which involved zero clothing. "We were both naked and we had just met," Woods recalled. "It was like, 'Okay so, you're going to be wearing Chris Evans at this photo shoot.' And um, that was my wardrobe," she said with a laugh. "He was so respectful and cool and it made it all so much easier. All we did was listen to Motown and laugh a lot. That was the vibe on set, we were both humbled by the experience." Saying we are jealous would be the understatement of the century. "In those shots it looks like we're in the throes and rolling around on a sexy beach or something," she explained. "But we were being very strategically positioned and quite awkwardly so, having to hold these poses. I think I remember being pretty sore at the end of the day actually. So it looked natural, but it can be silly and fun doing it."

In an interview with W magazine, the actress made it clear that she has no qualms about baring it all for her art. "I wasn't apprehensive," she said of getting nude for her upcoming film Personal Shopper. "I feel super great with director Olivier [Assayas], as well. The scenes in which I don't have clothes on or the scenes that seem 'risqué' from an outsider's perspective, there was no acknowledgment on his part." Stewart went on to explain why nudity was such a crucial element in the film's arc. "My personal feeling about that is that I'm really unashamed, but within the context of the story, there's a lot of shame… So it's kind of nice to see someone stripped and bare, totally bare. There's strength in it." When it comes to people who get squeamish about onscreen nudity, Stewart thinks their reactions are actually the root of any strangeness. "I'm pretty open. I think people are a little too f------ weird about it, to be honest, but that's kind of why I was like, 'I'll do it,' " she told the mag.

Michele called her recent naked appearance on the cover of the U.K. Women's Health "the most exciting my life has been for a while," during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I feel like everyone there was more nervous than I was," she added. "They were like: 'Okay, do you need the air at a certain temperature and the music and we'll all clear around?' And I was like: 'I'm fine!'"

"I've done [nude scenes] enough times to know exactly strategically how to place my manhood, so as to be respectful of the crew and my costar," Ventimiglia explained to Vulture, though he's occasionally surprised by what turns up in the finished product. "When I saw the [This Is Us] trailer I'm like, 'Wow, man, that is my ass and that is my ass before my face. Okay, here we go.'"

"Too racy would be one thing I wouldn't go for now. I'm not so keen on doing nudity, because I'm not 22 anymore," Blunt told The Telegraph. "And actually it's not so much a moral thing as, 'I've done it before and do I really want to do it again?'" she added. "Does it serve the film or is it gratuitous and seeing someone's tits for the sake of it? Because I don't think it's necessary most of the time."

"When I first started the show, I wasn't in a relationship, no one knew who I was, I was just kind of living for the work. So when I took my clothes off on camera, it was just an extension of that," Dunham told Refinery29. "Now, for better or worse, when I take my clothes off, I already can hear the din of the reaction."

"We did the sex scenes and it was … toxic," Michelle Williams recalled of shooting Blue Valentine with Ryan Gosling to W magazine. "Ryan and I had stopped relating to each other as Ryan and Michelle. Those scenes took forever. I had a long drive from set to home each night, and I would roll down all the windows and turn up the music as loud as I could and hang my head out the window like a dog and scream."

"It's actually kind of annoying, you're there for 12 hours," Justin Timberlake told the BBC of filming sex scenes in Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis. "It's exhausting."

"It's hard to have a sex scene, period," Kunis told the Huffington Post. "It doesn't matter if it's a friend, a male, a female. You're with 100-something crew members, lighting you, repositioning you, there's no comfort whatsoever."

"I am sort of a boundaryless person," Schumer told The New York Times. "In our house, nudity wasn't a big deal, so that was never an issue for me. It was about the crew. The sex scenes that are funny, I don't care, but the ones that are actually sexual, it's like these people are seeing me be really vulnerable. Frank, who's holding the boom, is seeing, 'Oh, this is what Amy is like when she really means business.' In between every single take, I think I screamed, 'It's so embarrassing!'"
