Mr. Skin Hall-of-Famer and Parisian belle femmeMaria Schneider has shuffled off this mortal coil.

The legendary actress's light went out in the City of Lights today at the age of 58 after a battle with cancer.

Maria is best remembered for her very naked performance as Marlon Brando's partner in anonymous kinky sex in Last Tango in Paris, one of the most controversial films of all time, not least for it's butter-lubed anal sex sequence.

Although she got naked again in La Derobade in 1979, that was also the year that she claimed her experiences with Brando had scarred her for life.

She stormed off the set of the skinstant classic Caligula, where she had been case as Drusilla, the incestuous sister of the emperor and holed up in a hotel with her lesbian lover, refusing to ever do nudity on film again.

Teresa Ann Savoy took over the role, Maria went into a downward spiral of addiction, and the rest is skinstory.

We never saw Maria naked again, but at least she left us a skinematic masterpiece to remember her by,

Maria, Mr. Skin wishes you a fond adieu.
