12 respected actors you won’t believe went full-frontal in films
There’s no shortage of female nudity in television and film, or even prominent stars who have bared all for the silver screen. However, when the topic becomes famous male stars who have dropped their underwear for acting roles, few are remembered. We’ve compiled a list of respectable actors who bared it all for an acting role and you won’t believe how many household names have gone completely starkers in film:
1. Jude Law in The Talented Mr. Ripley
That’s right – Jude Law got it all out in a bath scene during The Talented Mr. Ripley, in a scene where his co-star Matt Damon doesn’t quite know where to look.
2. Kevin Bacon in Wild Things
Before Kevin Bacon was doing all those EE adverts, he was appearing completely starkers in Wild Things in 1998.
3. Tom Cruise in All The Right Moves
There was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance from Mini Cruise in the 1983 film All The Right Moves.
4. Ewan McGregor in Trainspotting, The Pillow Book, Young Adam, ER, and Velvet Goldmine.
Ewan is no one-time-wonder in this category. Catch him full-frontal in any one of Trainspotting (1996), The Pillow Book (1996), Young Adam (2003), Velvet Goldmine (1998) and an episode of ER.
5. Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall
The only part of Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) we didn’t forget was the memorable early appearance of Segel’s member.
6. Viggo Mortensen in The Indian Runner
Viggo Mortensen appeared wearing nothing in 1991’s The Indian Runner.
7. Michael Fassbender in Shame
We got a gratuitous shot of Fassbender completely naked in 2011’s Shame.
8. Daniel Craig in Some Voices
Before anyone said anything about Bond, Daniel Craig was getting his kit off in Some Voices in 2000.
9. Ben Affleck in Gone Girl
There’s a brief glimpse of Affleck’s goods in a shower scene in Gone Girl (2014).
10. Tom Hardy in Bronson
Hardy bared it all for prison drama Bronson in 2008. He’s also been pictured completely naked filming for the upcoming FX mini-series Taboo, which will air in the summer.
11. Richard Gere in American Gigolo
Gere plays a male prostitute in American Gigolo (1980), and aptly gets his business out for the role.
12. Mel Gibson in Gallipoli
Mel Gibson’s private parts make a blink-and-you’ll-mis-it appearance in war drama Gallipoli (1981), during a skinny dipping scene.
