How Far Will She Go to Stay Non-nude? Bikini in the Shower?

"I'm not prudish about nudity,” infrequently naked Natalie Portman recently told Elle UK. “I think it's beautiful in films, and sex is such a big part of life.”

So far, it’s hard to disagree with Natalie, except for the part about her not being prudish. One good nude scene in Hotel Chevalier, a nip slip (as a stripper!) in Closer, and the use of a stunt butt in Goya’s Ghosts doesn’t exactly make you Monica Bellucci, honey.

But then Natalie went on to make some seriously disturbing pronouncements.

Among the things Natalie (real last name “Hershlag”) won’t be doing on screen anymore are playing Jews, playing someone’s girlfriend, playing a woman who “has to have a job in fashion so that she can have nice clothes,” playing a woman who is or wants to be married, orfinally and most devastatinglytaking off her clothes.

Is she conspiring with Michelle Rodriguez to deprive the world of naked ethnic babes?

No word yet on how this will affect her upcoming lesbian scene with Mila Kunis in Black Swan.

Natalie doesn’t want to bank on her looks to the detriment of her acting skills, explaining, "You look at Meryl Streep, who is so phenomenally, freakishly gorgeous, and, in some ways, it's just bizarre that she was never a sex symbol.”

Someone never saw Silkwood, where Meryl played Cher’s radioactive lesbian lover and got naked in a decontamination shower!

"I just don't want to do something that will end up as a screen grab on a porn site,” she complained.
