Jessica Alba: Nude Scenes Rule Is For Her Grandparents’ Sake

For Jessica Alba, nude scenes are something she simply will not tolerate and her movie contracts specifically say she will not strip naked for the video camera any time soon. But why does she take this stance?

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Emmy Rossum’s nude scenes present a dilemma for her in another way:

“It’s definitely weird on first dates when guys have already seen your boobs. I feel like it gives guys the wrong idea about me because Fiona is so open with her sexuality, but I feel like I’m not that liberated at all. So when I’m in character, it feels like I’m playing pretend, it feels like I’m in that head space and it’s very easy for me in a certain way to do that.”

But in the case of Jessica Alba’s nude scenes rule she’s simply thinking of the family:

“I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the picture.”

And that’s where some actresses may disagree. Some believe that if a woman would be realistically nude in a particular scenario then they should just play the role. But even some actresses who will do nude scenes refuse to do them if there’s no artistic merit to the idea.

There’s actually been something of a backlash against the overwhelming amount of female nudity being put on display by some celebrities. For example, Rihanna’s nude photos on Instagram had the company calling her out, saying enough is enough. Avril Lavigne said nude photos of her are unlikely since she prefers to make a statement without using her body. Sinead O’Connor tried warning Miley Cyrus that the music industry was “prostituting” her for money and even Katy Perry has said some are using the sex card way too much.

Do you think Jessica Alba’s nude scenes rule makes sense?
