19 Stars That Don't Mind Getting Naked For Roles

Many have clauses in their contracts that state they will not ever do a nude scene (Julia Roberts uses body doubles when a role calls for her to take it all off, and has said, "It's just not my thing.") Still, for as many thespians who will not take it all off, there are just as many who will, and have willfully.

Review: 'Saving Mr. Banks' Doesn't Need Any Saving - It's Perfect!

Saving Mr. Banks

It's your own personal experience that counts. Some films just work for you and others don't. It's the same with art, music, and theatre - no matter how much you argue with someone over the merits of a certain film - it's not going to change the kind of experience you have.

That being said, I absolutely loved every second of 'Saving Mr. Banks' directed by John Lee Hancock ('The Blindside'). From the brilliant performances o...
