With ‘Hostel II’ I thought I had a very, very strong female audience so I’m going to make a movie that’s going to appeal to them. The guys will love it, they’ll have their moments. But there’ll be a lot more male nudity in this one. I have a lot of sausage in this one!

I was never apposed or sought out nudity, but it was necessary in the Where the Truth Lies.

Rachel Blanchard
I don’t say that I won’t do nudity for other people’s benefit. It has nothing to do with other people’s, it’s just what I’m comfortable with. I can’t say this enough, I’m totally comfortable with my body. I like my body, I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I think I have a nice body, I’m happy with it.

Robin Thicke
Nudity and sex scenes are two completely different things. Nudity you can kind of get used to, but not when there is movement and relating involved. The sex scenes are very uncomfortable because that’s something to be protected, so you have a visceral reaction to not exploit that.

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.

Anne Hathaway
I don’t know why people don’t want to talk about their numbers. I guess in a sense, there’s a bit of performer nudity, a bit of ego nudity when you expose your numbers, I guess because someone’s are higher or someone’s are lower. I’ve never really talked about the numbers with anyone, so maybe I’m not supposed to.
Chris Hardwick

Sonia Rykiel
If I was on Game of Thrones, I think the nudity and sex questions would probably get irritating, but this is a show about sex.

To begin with, working class people reacted against our openness about sex. They are frightened of nudity, they’re repressed in that way as well as others. Perhaps they thought ‘Paul [McCartney] is a good lad, he doesn’t make trouble’.

I don’t want anyone to get seriously hurt. But I do watch awards shows to critique the clothes while I sit around eating chips in my sweat pants and in hopes of seeing some hilarious accidental nudity.

Claudia Schiffer
Complete nudity in itself is not erotic. It becomes so only when preceeded by or contrasted to a state of dress. In this limited context then, all clothes become somewhat immoral, if we define immorality as inciting sexual interest. Habitual nakedness may indeed be capable of elevating man to a higher mental plane
Lucy Irvine
I’m not opposed to nude scenes, if they’re appropriate. I’m not against them morally. But I personally no longer find movie nudity to be worth my while.
Amber Heard
There are one hundred and ninety-three living species of monkeys and apes. One hundred and ninety-two of them are covered with hair. The exception is a naked ape self-named Homo sapiens. The zoologist now has to start making comparisons. Where else is nudity at a premium.
Desmond Morris
The most boring thing in the entire world is nudity. The second most boring thing is honesty.
Chuck Palahniuk
I didn’t want to be a victim of my own message [in Trust film]. I didn’t want to take advantage of a 14-year-old actor. I didn’t want there to be any nudity, or any real overt violence. I think it’s more terrifying that there is no violence, in that moment. There’s control and there’s power, but there’s no violence.
David Schwimmer
I think women are sexy when they got some clothes on. And if later they take them off then you’ve triumphed. Somebody once said it’s what you dont see you’re interested in, and this is true.
