Jessica Alba: 'I Don't Do Nudity' ( to the horror of men everywhere)
People ^ | 10/11/2006 | Stephen M. Silverman

Posted on 10/11/2006 10:52:22 AM PDT by Panerai

It's nerves over nakedness, as far as Jessica Alba is concerned.

The 25-year-old actress tells Elle magazine in its November issue that when she was playing a stripper in 2005's Sin City, directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez offered her the option to bare all – but she said no way.

"I don't do nudity. I just don't," says Alba, who is currently shooting the movie farce Good Luck Chuck with Dane Cook. "Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won't get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety."

Of the 2005 flare-up in which Playboy magazine published a photo of a bikini-clad Alba on its March cover – suggesting, she claimed, that readers would get a glimpse of all of her inside – Alba now says, "It was against who I am and what I represent. I've been working so hard to be somebody else, and it just wasn't cool."

She's got a better package in that photo than Gore did in Rolling Stone.

I was originally going to respond, "Good for her." But, after seeing that picture... Yowza. It's not as if she leaves much to the imagination!

Alba and Scarlett Johanssen are just about the two most beautiful actresses working right now.

Eh... I like my Ladies taller, paler, and with light colored eyes. My wife is just about perfect IMO.

I think every movie I have seen Scarlet Johanssen in, has stunk.
Except for Ghost World.

Selma Hayek is still #1 in my eyes.

She really means, I don't do nudity for under $8 million, so pass the collection plate.

C'mon Elle, it's just a teensy weensy step. Do it for old Naughtius. (I'll respect you, I promise.)

I wholeheartedly concur. Scarlett for the bad girl, but you bring Jessica home to mama.

Me too. I'd even take "barking" lessons.

Seriously, I'd dribble a basketball through a mine field just to stand next to the last guy that had sex with her!!

I liked "In Good Company" with Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid. That's about it, though.

Check out Ghost World. I liked that one mostly because of Steve Buschemi.

Is that a tailor-adjusted shower cap she's wearing?

RE Ahem

That, God help us, is not nudity, that is "high fashion". Nudity is when you take the clothes off, not wear 'peek-a-boo' dresses.
