Because we’re basically pandering to the crowd that comes in from Google — Hey, we just got our puppy spayed, we need to make that money — Dakota Fanning is capping off her recent eighteenth birthday by doing a nude scene in her movie, Very Good Girls (also starring Elizabeth Olsen). Because it’s not like people won’t go crazy over a famous young woman going nude, right? Right. Via HuffPo …
The movie, slated to come out later this year, follows Fanning and Elizabeth Olson as two best friends who, fresh out of high school, are determined to lose their virginity. Unlike American Pie in every way but the pact, the two friends end up falling for the same guy.
“Yeah, well, I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that,” said Fanning when asked if showing skin was a tough decision. “I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.” As for how comfortable the whole situation was, the young star candidly said that “no one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes].”
Well, good for her for doing what she wants (at least I’m hoping it was her decision.) I honestly don’t get why people get so weirded out when it comes to nudity in movies, especially since it only ever shows up in movies geared to an audience mature enough to handle it. Actually, is it possible there’s an entire segment of the population who’s never seen themselves or anyone else naked? “Oh my God, there’s stuff under my boxers? FREAKING OUT NOW.”
