Gotta hand it to Australian singer-songwriter Sia: When she learned of nefarious activity involving candid nude photos, she headed the creep off at the pass, tweeting a shot of her exposed derriere with the words: “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” That happens to be the title of her new album, which drops November 17th, so she turned a potential scandal into a marketing ploy. Brilliant! Still, you probably won’t see anything similar from the following women, who have all publicly proclaimed an aversion to posing or acting in the buff. So short of dating them, we will never know the grooming habits of these stubborn female never-nudes. On the upside, we can still savor their beauty. Enjoy!
Christina Hendricks: “Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on Mad Men, and then all anyone was talking about was my body!”
Katy Perry: “I like to play the sexy card because it's fun and definitely in my deck, but I like to tease. I'm like a burlesque girl. I definitely won't be doing a Playboy spread, but I will be doing a kind of Dita Von Teese style.”
Jessica Alba: “I don’t do nudity. I just don’t. Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won’t get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety.”
Shakira: “I don’t want to and I don’t have to. I couldn’t strip naked.”
Jessica Simpson: “I will never do nudity. I don’t care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know. I don’t care if I frickin’ could get an Oscar for it, I’m not going to do it.”
Reese Witherspoon: “If actresses take their clothes off, they objectify themselves. I am flabbergasted by how many legitimate actresses do it.” Editor's note: Witherspoon has appeared topless in multiple films, for what it's worth.
Jennifer Hudson: “I won’t be taking my clothes off—no way at all. Beyonce and Rihanna can have that. I like to cover up more. I won’t do Playboy. Playboy can call, and wait. That’s just not me.”
Jennifer Love Hewitt: “My naked body shouldn’t have to be out there in the public. I need something that’s mine alone.”
Megan Fox: “I can’t ever imagine myself doing nudity in a film. It lives forever, especially now, with the Internet.”
Rachel Leigh Cook: “I have no problem with actors getting naked in movies, but taking my clothes off makes me uncomfortable. I’m very shy. I won’t do nudity.”
Isla Fisher: “I feel like if you have a female comic character and then you see her nipples, then she is no longer funny.”
