Imagine being asked on a date by Christina Aguilera when you never even thought about asking her out, because you have a girlfriend.
Now, imagine being asked to do a commercial where you’re going to be totally nude because the scene calls for it. Now, imagine even further about how many times you’ve even looked at yourself in the mirror fully naked. Exactly.
2/3 of actors are unemployed at any one time, so for those poor souls, getting a callback to do a nude scene is not far from high end prostitution. Get naked, get paid. As delusional as it sounds, an actor is paid to act, so they will be naked if the scene calls for it.
I bet that’s what Daniel Radcliffe had to go through to play his part on Equus.
Would you do it?
