Whether it’s a sparkly ensemble or a pair of leather pants and a sexy bra — or in Tatum’s case, just a tie — Hollywood has stripped down on the big screen for many, many years, and Celebuzz is taking a look back at some of the best ever caught on film.
As Lola, Hayek donned a skimpy outfit and strutted her stuff on stage in the 2011 French drama Americano. The actress, now 46, took on the role some 15 years after mesmerizing George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino’s characters in the horror flick From Dusk Till Dawn. Hayek also pranced around as Serendipity in the 1999 picture Dogma, starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
In 2009, Jessica Biel took it all off in Powder Blue, in which she plays a single mother who dances to support her son, who is in a coma. The film, which only saw limited release, featured an all-star ensemble that included the late Patrick Swayze, Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta, Lisa Kudrow and Les Miserables’ Eddie Redmayne.
From Natalie Portman’s gloomy yet sexy performance in Closer to Jessica Alba’s leather-clad number in Sin City, these stars have demonstrated that disrobing on screen need not be tasteless or disturbing, but rather artistic and striking.
