Rita Wilson, actress and wife of Tom Hanks, has signed on to guest star on HBO’s Girls as Allison Williams’ mother. Her only request? No nudity.
The Emmy-nominated series is known for its frequent displays of full-body nudity, and heck, what HBO show isn’t? Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and hillbilly-Twilight True Blood? Sure, they’re all great shows, but what would they be without all of the sweaty, naked sex? Rita is a smart girl. She’s been around the block a few times. So despite her personal convictions, her comfort, or yes, even her age, she knew that nudity was a possibility when she signed on for Girls.
And mother figures aren’t immune, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In a first season episode, the mother of Lena Dunham’s character (played by Becky Ann Baker) is shown nude in the shower doing something for grown-ups.
But no such shenanigans will be written into Wilson’s contract.
“I [wanted] it put in my contract . . . [They] don’t want to see me nude,” the 55-year-old told Us Weekly. “That’s all I have to say. I’m like, ‘Don’t write in any nudity, please!’”
On the role, Wilson said that she had a good time shooting for Girls as the mother of Marnie (played by Allison Williams).
“[Filming] was a blast,” she said. “It’s just one episode this season, but I hope there’s room for [my character] to grow!”
Wilson also has a recurring gig on CBS’ The Good Wife as lawyer Viola Walsh.
