Few days back I wrote about the brouhaha of intimacy and on-screen exposure in movies, and concluded that it was up to the actors to choose if they wanted to reveal some flesh or not. So I did a little research and found some actresses (Hollywood and Nollywood) who do not consent to on-screen exposure and intimacy in movies for personal and other reasons.
Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha
She is a Nigerian actress, director and producer who has created an outstanding image for herself and has acted in movies such as; Sister Maria and Sins of the Flesh. She is one of the Nollywood actresses who doesn’t kiss or go naked in her movies.
Anna Kendrick who is an American actress refuses to act any nude scenes as well. In her movie “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” where she appeared naked, wasn’t her nakedness but actually a body double. She told The Telegraph that “I will not do that… I am not criticizing people who do [nude scenes], but I plan to keep doing what I am doing and hope it keeps going good.”
Muoghalu Uchechukwu Judith (Judy Austin)
She’s also a Nigerian producer with two movies to her credit: ‘Native Girl’ and ‘Fear’. In an interview with Potpourri she stated: “I’m not going naked for any amount, and I hardly kiss in a movie. I will not do a kind of kissing where the guy would be fondling my breasts. I must not go nude to be a star. I shouldn’t do what my kids or family will see and be ashamed of. My limit is, I don’t do nude and I don’t do over romantic films.”
An American actress considered to be a very sexy personality by her fans, has decided to stop going nude on screen. That she will never make X-rated movies because of her children.
In her discussion with ‘The Mirror’ she told them “There are some good projects I’ve read that are with talented people, talented directors, but the things the women are required to do in the movie are things I can’t have my sons ever know or see.” She once rejected a role with HBO because of the sex scenes involved, talking about the role, she stated; “Those are things that are degrading to the woman who’s playing the character.”
