Fans of the hit HBO show Westworld already know that there's more than enough nudity to go around, but they'll be getting an extra-special surprise with Thandie Newton's nude scenes.
Newton, who plays Maeve on the hit show, said that she opted to go "full 1970s" for her "down there" parts because she was committed to realism.
She told the Graham Norton Show (via the Daily Mail) that Westworld -- like other productions -- provides merkins (which are, um, very special wigs) so that if anything is altered, they can look more realistic for the role. Newton said that she was "very realistic" down there, so she didn't need a wig of any kind.
Newton added that, because the events of Westworld take place in a "wide-open prairie," what she has worked just fine since there wasn't "plucking, shaving, and waxing" back then.
She also said that there was a more practical reason for her avoiding the merkin: because it cut into her precious family time. Newton, who has a 2-year-old daughter, said that merkins take more than an hour to glue on -- and another hour to take off -- and she "wanted to go home and spend time with her daughter."
The other guests of the Graham Norton Show also had their fair share to say about the merkin controversy.
Chris Pratt, who will be starring in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, said that he "fully supported" the Westworld star's decision to go au naturel, before fist-bumping her and congratulating her for being so brave.
