10 Best Nude Movie Scenes
Grab your remote and fast forward to the good parts with our list of the ten best nude movie scenes. From the iconic to the obscure, the one thing that all of these films have in common is luscious ladies ditching their clothes and going au naturel.
- Nicole Kidman in “Eyes Wide Shut”. Stanley Kubrick's final film is packed with provocative imagery, but the stand out is the nude scene that starts the movie. Kidman slinks her way out of a little black dress and gives viewers a good look at her perfect bottom and impossibly long legs.
- Monica Bellucci in “Malena”. This might be the best argument for owning a high-definition television. Bellucci is one of the most beautiful women in the world and in this lush drama, viewers get to see all of her. Spending more screen time out of her clothes than in them, Bellucci's best scene is a dream sequence where she goes full-frontal for an extended period of time.
- Halle Berry in “Monster's Ball”.The raunchy rendezvous between Berry and co-star Billy Bob Thornton is one of the most explicit nude scenes ever to appear in a mainstream movie. It's also one of the best. Berry received an Oscar for her performance and two thumbs up from titillated viewers.
- Carla Gugino in “Sin City”. This 2005 hit wasn't the first time Gugino appeared nude, but Robert Rodriguez made sure she'd never looked better. The high contrast black and white cinematography highlights every curve of her body and the scene where she searches for a prowler topless will drop jaws.
- Jamie Lee Curtis in “Trading Places”. The actress may regret filming what's become one of the seminal nude scenes in cinematic history, but anyone who's seen it is certainly glad she did. The movie stars comedy giants Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd, but it was Lee's twins that stole the spotlight.
- Jessica Biel in “Powder Blue”. The world waited a long time to finally see Biel nude and it was worth it. Playing a down on her luck stripper in the movie, she has more than a few opportunities to showcase her amazing body. The best is a scene that features her topless and pouring candle wax all over herself.
- Katie Holmes in “The Gift”. The nude scene in Sam Raimi's eerie thriller is brief, but Holmes' breasts are so immaculate that it's still one of the best. Viewers will be scrambling to hit the pause button on their remotes when she walks on screen wearing a pair of panties, an unbuttoned shirt, and nothing else.
- Elizabeth Berkley in “Showgirls”. It was downright shocking to see the same actress who'd played a stern feminist on “Saved by the Bell” suddenly shedding her clothes in Paul Verhoeven's graphic look at Las Vegas strippers. A trashy classic, “Showgirls” contains one of the best nude scenes of all time. After watching Berkley perform an unbelievable full-frontal lap dance, you'll never be able to look at her the same way again.
- Natasha Henstridge in “Species”. This entire film is essentially one long nude scene for Henstridge, but the highlight comes near the end of the movie when she seduces one of the scientists that's hunting her character down. Henstridge is an alien in disguise and her body is out of this world
- Jaime Pressly in “Poison Ivy 3: The New Seduction”. A former model and gymnast, Pressly has an extraordinarily tight body and it's never looked better than it does in this movie. The hottest scene involves her character seducing a man by dressing in his dead wife's clothes, then stripping nude and inviting him into bed.
