What Are The Top 14 Most Memorable Topless Scenes On Film?

October 10th, 2012 9:06pm EDT
Phoebe Catest Fast Times at Ridgemont High
There are dozens of actresses who have no problem taking off their tops for the sake of a movie role, and their choices can end up either hurting or helping their careers.

With the advent of the internet, many of these scenes now live on forever, but with topless and nude scenes a-dime-a-dozen, ...

It's rare that commercials are actually right, but today they are when they claim that a film based on the "Most-Acclaimed Graphic Novel of All Time" will be released.

That film, and novel, is "Watchmen" of course. The movie comes from the 12-part comic series from Alan Moore ("From Hell", "V for Vendetta") that was quickly packaged into a graphic novel upon its completion. Many consider this series the greatest in the history of comics and the subsequent novel actually made it onto Time Magazine's 100 Greatest Novels of the Century List.
