Actress Christina Ricci has revealed that she once “stayed n@ked” while talking to crew members between takes on a film set in order to normalize her nudi ty on set.
Speaking to Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney for one of Variety’s Actors on Actors interviews, Ricci said that she had felt uncomfortable with others being uncomfortable with her being n@ked, so she decided to remain n@ked throughout the shoot in order to normalize it for the crew.
Ricci did not specify which film she was referring to, but said that this was the only time she had felt comfortable being n@ked on camera.
“So what I did, and you probably wouldn’t be allowed to do this now – I just stayed n@ked. I was like, ‘Don’t make me feel weird, like I’m the person who has to be ashamed.’ I would talk to crew members n@ked.”
“I wanted everybody around me to stop reacting to it, because then I would forget that I was n@ked,” she said. “And it worked. But it’s one of the only times I’ve ever actually really felt comfortable being n@ked on camera.”
Sweeney has also spoken about her experiences with on-screen nudi ty, saying that she believes there is a stigma against actresses who get n@ked on screen.
“When a guy has a sex scene or shows his body, he still wins awards and gets praise. But the moment a girl does it, it’s completely different,” she said.
Ricci has appeared in a number of films that required her to be n@ked, including The Ice Storm, Prozac Nation, and The Opposite of Sex. She has also spoken candidly about her experiences with on-screen nudi ty in the past.
In an interview with The Guardian, Ricci said that she had been uncomfortable with some of the sexual scenes she had been required to film. “I was always very uncomfortable with it. I never felt like it was anything I wanted to do,” she said.
Despite her discomfort with on-screen nudi ty, Ricci has continued to work in the industry and has appeared in a number of successful films and television shows.
She is known for her roles in films such as Casper, Sleepy Hollow, and Monster, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Ricci has also worked as a producer and has executive produced a number of films and television shows, including Z: The Beginning of Everything and The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.
In addition to her work in film and television, Ricci has also ventured into the world of fashion. She has been the face of a number of high-profile campaigns, including those for Calvin Klein, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton.
She has also been featured on the covers of a number of magazines, including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
Ricci has received critical acclaim for her work throughout her career and has been nominated for a number of awards.
She won the Best Actress award at the Rome Film Festival for her role in The Ice Storm and was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her work in Monster.
Ricci continues to work in the industry and has several upcoming projects in development.
