Natalie Portman Uneasy About Nude Scenes
Posted by Adam
NATALIE Portman admits she feels uneasy about stripping off in front of the camera — in case her naked image ends up on X-rated websites.
The New York, I Love You star told America’s V Magazine that she struggled with the decision to appear nude at the start of her career, and even asked filmmakers to rewrite a scene in her 1999 movie Anywhere But Here because she felt uneasy about baring all.
“I was figuring out my own sexual identity, likes and dislikes and all that stuff, and it’s weird to be doing stuff on film as you’re figuring it out,” she said. “Also being a sexual object when you’re a kid is really uncomfortable. After The Professional, I was already getting creepy letters.”
“It’s annoying because online bulls**t interferes with what I want to do artistically,” Portman added. “I’m not opposed to sexuality or nudity in a film, but I’m very opposed to pornography sites and you’re pretty much giving them material if you do any of that. It’s always a big dilemma for me.”
