Nude scenes: we love them. Well, most of the time, anyway.
Every so often, a film comes along that contains nudity that transcends “gratuitous” (hooray for Porky’s!) and wanders into “oh dear God, my eyes, please help me” territory. We’ve all been there, whether it was getting that extra bit of Bacon during Wild Things‘ opening weekend, or stumbling across Dennis Hopper without his pants on during a late-night Cinemax airing of Carried Away — but thankfully, Papermag‘s Cinemaniac is here to help you navigate the pitfalls of unclothed celebrities, with a list of the Top Ten Worst Nude Scenes of All Time.
The list is as cruelly humorous as you’d expect — perfect for a Friday, in other words — but we’ll save the prose for those of you who want to follow the link. In the meantime, here’s the list:
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead
Donald Sutherland, Space Cowboys
Kathy Bates, At Play in the Fields of the Lord
John Gielgud, Prospero’s Books
Julie Andrews, S.O.B.
Burgess Meredith, Such Good Friends
Terry Bradshaw, Failure to Launch
Jessica Tandy, Camilla
Jay North, Maya
Patrick Dempsey, Some Girls
As the article puts it when referencing Dempsey’s Some Girls scene, “some things are better left to the imagination.” What’s on your personal list of Worst Nude Scenes of All Time?
