Skip to comments.Jessica Alba: 'I Don't Do Nudity' ( to the horror of men everywhere)
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."

That was her 20 pounds ago.
She's got a better package in that photo than Gore did in Rolling Stone.
Good for her. Good for her but too bad for the rest of us!
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!
Good news guys - anxiety can be overcome, morals mean forever ;)
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.)
Quite a shot, that one. Is it real?
Salma Hayek can beat me, hurt me, and make me write bad checks!!
In Dusk till Dawn she said, " I iwll make you my dog, I will call you spot!"
I said to myself....I can live with that!!
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 think every movie I have seen Scarlet Johanssen in, has stunk."
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?
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.
