Sharon Stone critical of 'inauthentic' nudity in sex scenes


Sharon Stone has taken aim at actresses who refuse to bare all in sex scenes, insisting it just isn't natural to cover up.

The actress has never been afraid of nude scenes in her films and can't understand her peers who sign up for movie lovemaking only to make sure they're buried in the duvet.

Bing: Sharon Stone on 'Lovelace'

She tells WENN, "I feel that it's so disappointing in films when you see the comforter taped to someone's chest. It takes you out of the scene and doesn't protect you from something within the scene. My 'Lovelace' co-star Peter Sarsgaard said, 'When I'm in bed with someone and I get up to go to the bathroom, I don't take the comforter with me.'"

Stone said she had to explain her onscreen nudity to her father when he asked her, "Do you really have to be naked all the time?" after watching his daughter in "Basic Instinct."

She recalls, "I'm like, 'Well, yeah! I'm playing a sociopathic, sexual serial killer!' When it has common sense, it doesn't make sense to do something else. It really is the costume of your character. What else are you gonna do? It seems foolish to do something else and if you do something else, that distracts the audience if you're inauthentic. If you're inauthentically naked then it's distracting to the audience when you are naked."

Sharon is correct in saying that many or most sex scenes in movies or television are not very realistic and not worth filming (or watching) Thankfully, some are..

Sharon Stone apparently thinks a lot about these types of things. It's what makes her a great actor. Hopefully, she will receive an Oscar one day.

If the dude shows his tits then the girl should show her tits. THAT'S equality.

I have yet to see a movie where having a sex scene did anything for the movie. Half the time sex is used to sell a movie that otherwise might not be all that interesting. Actresses have to ask themselves if the men that came to see their movie came to see them act, or came to see them naked. Actresses that are willing to get naked only end up helping objectify women as sex objects in general

Some people has morals and are modest. And just because she doesn't have the same morals as others or has no modesty, doesn't mean she is right.  Why does everyone think everyone else  has to be like they are?
