Mr. Skin does love the French, and their yen for naked beauty—especially when it involves Géraldine Pailhas. Like so many actresses in her home country, this brunette beauty has been more than willing to disrobe for a role, and proved it by going full-frontal for her debut big-screen performance as Christiane Mercier in 1991’s La Neige et le feu, aka, Snow and Fire, most notably in a long, well-lit shower scene. Fun (and impressive) fact: Géraldine received a César Award (like an Oscar) for Most Promising Actress for this flick. After a few years making a name for herself in French cinema, Géraldine branched out, ever so slightly, by starring in a bit of international fare, as Doña Ana in Don Juan DeMarco (1994) with Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando, and Faye Dunaway. Back on the nude scene—nakedness the international language of love—she bared her breasts as Louise in La Folie douce (1994), or Sweet Madness; in Suite 16 (1995) as Helen; as Sophie in Le garçu (1995), aka The Son Of…; Lucie in Peut-être (1999), aka Maybe; Clémence in La Chambre des officiers (2001), aka The Officer’s Ward; Valérie in Five Times Two (2004); and Diane in Je Pense à vous(2006), aka Made in Paris (again, Mr. Skin loves the French!). Géraldine is also known for her role as Véronique in The Arcandiers (1991), and for her part in Everything Went Fine (2022) with Sophie Marceau and Charlotte Rampling. She also received Best Supporting Actress César nominations for her role as Helena in The Cost of Living (2003), and Sylvie in Young & Beautiful (2013). Vive la France!
