Anatomy of a Nude Scene: How Halle Berry's Nude Debut Led Her to 'Monster's Ball'

In our weekly series Anatomy of a Nude Scene, we're going to be taking a look at (in)famous sex scenes and nude scenes throughout cinema history and examining their construction, their relationship to the film around it, and their legacy.

This week, we're going to take a look at how Halle Berry shot a gorgeous, beautiful, achingly honest and real nude scene in the film for which she'd eventually win an Oscar, Monster's Ball, and how that never would've happened without the almost entirely forgettable movie Swordfish. That's right, the Joel Silver-produced cyber-thriller with more frosted tips and technobabble than you can shake a stick at is directly responsible for Halle Berry's Oscar. Kind of.
