Honestly, whenever a movie's main selling point is "Hey, check it out! Oscar winners talking about poop and wieners!", we're skeptical. We're sure Kate Winslet likes to show off her range and all, but there's a reason she's not known for her comedic roles.
There are a lot of red flags surrounding the production of Movie 43 (2013), actually-- that it took four years to finish, for example, or that 15 writers and 11 different directors, including Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) star Elizabeth Banks, were involved-- but here's the thing. The usual rules don't apply to this movie, and here's why:
Ever wish that Peter Farrelly would make his version of The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977)? Well, here it is. Halle Berry plays a dirty version of truth or dare (let's just say turkey basters are involved) in a restaurant, Naomi Watts dons a side ponytail as a mom who bullies her home-schooled son, and Anna Faris wants Chris Pratt to poop on her. Plus, a segment chronicling the invention of the "iBabe" promises to be Movie 43's answer to Uschi Digard's mam-entous appearance as a "Catholic High School Girl in Trouble," and that's enough to sell us on almost anything.
Movie 43 doesn't hit theaters until January 25, 2013, but you can see more from stars Halle Berry, Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Bell, Uma Thurman, Kate Bosworth, and (phew) Leslie Bibb right here at MrSkin.com!
Tonight the stars come out in Los Angeles as the best and brightest on the boob tube assemble for the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. As usual, HBO leads the pack in nominations, blinding the Academy with boobage (and quality writing, acting and production values, but whatever) for a stunning 81 nominations including 15 for their original movie Hemingway & Gellhorn, 12 for Boardwalk Empire, 11 for Game of Thrones, and 5 for Girls.
This year's nudest nominees are also HBO players: Nicole Kidman is nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Mini Series or Movie for her nude role in Hemingway & Gellhorn, and Lena Dunham, is was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy, Outstanding Directing, and Outstanding Writing for Girls.
Congratulations to all of our lovely nomi-nudes! We'll be rubbing our lucky rabbit's foot for you tonight!

We've got a wide variety of wonderful women from around the world this week on DVD and Blu-ray, so unleash your Eiffel tower and prepare for an onslaught of les belles femmes nues...Kicking things off on Blu-ray, Mr. Skin Hall-of-Famer Juliette Binoche goes behind the scenes of a teen prostitution ring in Elles (2012).

And from over Hollywood way, Kate Winslet's unsinkable icebergs pop off the screen in the 3D Blu-ray of Titanic (1997).
More after the jump!
There are two approaches to onscreen nudity. One is the Shannon Elizabeth/Linnea Quigley school, where an actress makes her anatomical assets the center of attention in a series of comedy (or horror) flicks-- and her career. The other is the Kate Winslet/Michelle Williams school, where an actress uses onscreen nudity to prove that she's "serious" about her art and deserves an armload of awards like so.
It's a little late for Helen Hunt to get on the "scream queen" bandwagon, so she's enrolled in the latter school for her new movie The Sessions (formerly known as The Surrogate), where she makes her full frontal debut as a sex therapist with an unusual specialty: personally relieving patients of their virginity.
Nudecomer Annika Marks also goes nude in the film, which is already garnering serious awards buzz for Hunt as well as for John Hawkes as one of her disabled clients. If all else fails, Helen, rest assured: you're an early favorite for an Anatomy Award.

"Practicing gratitude" is some hippie bullshit, but we don't really mind when it's Kate Winslet who's the practitioner and the object of gratitude is her seat meat.
Kate posed in some so-so covered up fashion photos for the new issue of Vanity Fair Italia, and in the accompanying interview she talks about something near and dear to her heart: body image. As crazy as it may sound, Kate is too curvy for some Hollywood spoilsports' tastes, which used to made her feel terrible. But now she's realized that she's hot and she doesn't give a shit about that kind of thing, and the result is an nude oevure that's the best argument for feel-good self-esteem exercises we've ever seen. As she told the Italians:
"It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it...I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks.”
As are we, Kate. Namaste.
You'll be grateful for Kate Winslet's buttocks too when you see her nude right here at MrSkin.com!
Producers may be selling the new 3D version as " the ultimate Titanic viewing experience", but if you're anything like Skin Central, then nothing will ever beat the original full-screen VHS.
The only reason to watch this 1997 box-office smash, of course, is for Kate Winslet's SKINfamous "draw me like one of your French girls" scene, and thanks to the recent ballyhoo surrounding the film our Skin Labs revisited it on all available formats (we're completists like that).
What they discovered was that not only is the full-screen VHS the only version of Titanic to include a full butt shot from Ms. Winslet thanks to a wider shot, but when Kate takes off her robe for the big reveal, we get a few unsinkably awesome frames of full frontal as well. So remember Skin fans- digital may be crystal clear, but analog makes the bush appear.

Kate Winslet's chest icebergs were restored for Titanic 3D's Indian release, but censors in mainland China are now denying viewers in their country the same, uhm, release.
The skinfamous scene where Kate instructs Leonardo DiCaprio to "draw me like one of your French girls" has been cut from Titanic 3D on the orders of China's State Administration of Radio, Film,and Television, who justified their decision in a statement:
“Considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear that viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people’s viewing. To avoid potential conflicts between viewers and out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment, we’ve decided to cut off the nudity scenes.”
So if you ever find yourself in a Beijing movie theater, don't reach out and touch someone. The irony is that the nude scene was included when the original Titanic played Chinese theaters in 1997. 2D boobs? Ok by China. 3D boobs? Not so much*.
