Samuel L. Jackson hung up over nude scenes


Hollywood veteran Samuel L. Jackson hates nude scenes because he fears his co-star will feel insulted if she fails to arouse him.

Bing: Jackson launches men's health campaign

The "Pulp Fiction" actor has confessed he is always uncertain how to react when he has to get naked for sex scenes, and bombards his co-star with a checklist of body parts he should avoid touching. However, his biggest fear is getting too "excited" during the shoot -- even though he feels he is insulting the actress by failing to respond to her moves.

"I hate nude scenes. You have to ask where it's OK to touch and where it's not OK to touch, and then you have to apologize for getting excited or for not getting excited. I'm sorry if I do and I'm sorry if I don't," Jackson told U.K. talk show host Graham Norton. It's a weird conversation to have."

I think it was Cary Grant (may be wrong ... someone can correct me) that used to say to his female co-stars before romantic scenes "pardon me if I get aroused & pardon me if I don't" ... great line

Why does he have to worry about "not responding"?   In the words of the immortal Otto Preminger,

That's why they call it acting!"

Pretty sure I haven't ever seen him in a nude scene with anyone- ever. Samuel- keep your private life fantasies to yourself and play more golf.  A bad shot is like a cold shower!
