Poll Suggestion: Most Disappointing Nudity

We have all had that experience. The one where you finally see that hot actor or actress get naked in a film, only for the exposure to elicit a reaction ranging from "oh well, never mind..." to "oh my god, no!".

Of course, for this question, I am just talking about movies. If were were talking about magazine shoots, paparazzi shots, etc we could include people like Janice Dickinson, Kate Middleton, etc.

Which actors/actresses should have kept their clothes on in films?

Two men out of 19 options? I guess this shows the incredible double standard Hollywood advocates when it comes to nudity. There's probably about 20 women nude in a film for each single man!

Nontheless I suggest Halle Berry in Swordfish. Yes, she looked good, but it was so hyped up that when it happened it was just dull. Meh, I say, meh.

Now to the men...and they are a disappointing lot:
Harvey Keitel in Bad Lieutenant - frightening
Bruce Willis in Color of Night - only slightly worse than the film itself
Ken Davitian and Sacha Baron Cohen in Borat - fat + extreme body hair + wrestling = retch!

Oh yeah - Helen Hunt looked damn good in The Sessions.

Some great suggestions there! I should have remembered Bruce Willis in Color of Night! And yep, Halle Berry was definitely not worth the half million bucks :)

Color of Night (1994) is actually one of my all-time favorite movies. It's one of the most controversial and subjective entries on that list, which often raises questions, but it has a lot of great character actors, oddly appealing giallo-inspired visuals, immersive thriller structure and nice original music. I am pretty certain it is not working for many people and I'm okay with it, but at times it gets sad to hear that many people don't like this movie and think that it is exceptionally bad.

The poll questions the specific actor's nudity in a movie, nothing more.

I don't think it's a matter of double standards, given that we never see the genitals, it all comes down to the behind and the upper body, and we always see a man's behind or torso, by that I mean they're not taboo.

That isn't really a specific actor or actress you have suggested there :)

Oh. Sorry. Somehow I never knew that. Now I have a feeling I did some damage liking some much commentaries or posts.

This poll suggestion will quickly get problematic and controversial as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and that is totally the case with nude scenes.

Oh, and in Bad Lieutenant (1992) I suppose it was pretty much intended.

I agree, not sure if this would be allowed as a poll for those reasons but it'll be interesting to see the feedback regardless.

Surely the point of a poll is to ask people for their opinion on a subjective matter?

Fair point... but bringing one's nudity into the forefront of the subject matter can be, as Nikolay pointed out above, highly questionable and problematic. Not sure the site would be able to publish a poll of this nature, but who knows.

I absolutely support your right to express your opinion about either me or my silly poll :) Have a great day!

P.S. I am only moderately lovely as far as human beings go.

I'm more disappointed when there's a lack of nudity.

But your list is pretty funny, I must say.

It might be funny but I totally disagree with the inclusion of Kathy Bates, when we say "disappointing", it means that our expectations were heightened for a reason or another, Kathy Bates had exactly the type of body one would have expected, I mean that in a neutral way, I'm not sure it was supposed to arouse the viewers, just to show that she was a natural woman, with a natural body and a natural inclination to show it.

FYC: Appolonia in The Godfather
and that guy who played the "Apollo Creed" role in Creed (I mean the English opponent) seriously, I needed a telescope to spot at least one muscle in his upper body

That's a pretty good point about Kathy Bates but I just felt I had to include it, seeing as it is so often brought up in regards to unwanted movie nudity, you know?
You aren't a fan of Simonetta Stefanelli? She looks not too bad in Peccati in famiglia. In The Godfather, however,  I am not sure but I think she might have been under 18 there. Probably best to not address that one :)

Funny, I had the exact opposite reaction, I didn't expect anything and got much more...

It was just weird seriously... I imagine Michael's reaction at that moment like "well, that's not what I expected"
