Many times when we watch our favorite actor/actress in a movie, we actually believe they are stripping down to reveal their perfect body.
However, most Hollywood stars use body doubles that stand-in for them in nude or revealing scenes. Let’s find out who really strips down and who fakes it!
Does anyone actually even get naked anymore? These A-list celebrities are paid big money, only to have body doubles step in for them when they strip down!
There was previous speculation that the fine booty shown in the movie “Your Highness” didn’t belong to actress Natalie Portman.
Natalie explains, “There’s one shot that’s me and the shot of her diving into the water is a body double, because I didn’t wanna go in the water – it was really, really cold.”
Jennifer Aniston has a great body, but the 43-year-old star even uses a body double for her scene in “We’re the Millers”.
Aniston used a body double in her 20s for a scene where she runs from a burning building in just her panties and bra.
British actress Kate Beckinsale is a knock-out but even she used a body double in a scene for the film “Whiteout”, where she strips down for a shower scene.
There were rumors that Kate requested the body double but that was shot down by the studio. They stated, “As is standard practice on many movies, a body double was hired for several scenes by the production and not at the request of Kate Beckinsale.”
British actress Keira Knightley did a sexy scene in the film “Domino” where she does a lap-dance, but she admits that wasn’t her bootylicious backside.
Knightley previously said, “It’s definitely a body double, I don’t have that body. What a bum! I wish I had that bum… It was fantastic.”
Here’s the video but please be warned it has graphic language:
Funnywoman Isla Fisher played the whacky love-interest of Vince Vaughn in “Wedding Crashers”. She had an interesting reason for not baring her own boobs in the movie.
“I feel like if you have a female comic character and then you see her nipples, then she is no longer funny, which is clearly wrong, but that was my theory, and that’s why I didn’t want to do it,” she said.
Mila Kunis is a gorgeous, petite, brunette but even she doesn’t strip down on camera. Kunis starred with Justin Timberlake in “Friends with Benefits” and showed lots of skin…just not her own!
“I showed side boob and I figured I can’t just give everything all away at once,” she says. “I gotta let it all out in little pieces here and there.”
Jessica Alba has always stood firm on the issue of nudity. The actress may appear to take it all off in some of her films, but it’s a body double or digitally created.
Fans thought Alba changed her stance on nudity when she starred in “Machete”, but her rep shot that rumor down. Her rep said, “Jessica has been steadfast in her resolve not to appear nude in films from the beginning of her career.”
Her rep adds, “The decision to digitally remove the underwear from the shower scene in ‘Machete’ was one she and [director] Robert Rodriguez made together, which would serve his vision for the film, as well as honor her personal convictions regarding nudity.”
Even Julia Roberts used a body double for her body-baring scenes in the romantic movie “Pretty Woman”.
It’s not just the ladies of Hollywood that use body doubles! Comedian Owen Wilson admitted using a butt double in “You, Me and Dupree”.
Wilson joked, “The director made that decision not to use my butt, I don’t know how to interpret that.”
