Amala Paul has done something that most mainstream actors of Indian cinema do not dare to do. And while, what Amala Paul has done for cinema, is a rarity, she is not the only actress to have bared it when the script of a film demanded it. There have been others who are so committed to their art that they've come to terms with the idea that a scene may simply require nudity. Sharon Stone: While the iconic actor may have bared it all on-screen several times, she is best known for her iconic turn as Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct, where she was seen alongside another screen icon Michael Douglas. Udita Goswami: While she may have fizzled out from Bollywood, her super seductive scene from Zeher where she seduces Emraan Hashmi in a super sensual strip scene is still one of the most talked-about scenes portraying on-screen nudity in Indian cinema. Mandakini: While it may seem easier now, with a wave of new-age or Avante-Garde cinema hitting celluloid, Mandakini did the unthinkable 34 years earlier in the movie Ram Teri Ganga Maili opposite, Rajiv Kapoor. However, her portrayal of a nude Rose in the mega-hit Titanic and more recently as the film Iris in which she plays young Iris Murdoch. Zeenat Aman: The legendary actress went half-naked, leaving nothing to the imagination, in Raj Kapoor's Satyam Shivam Sundaram way back in Paoli Dam: The Bengali bombshell set the screen ablaze with her boldness by appearing bare in the film Hate Story's posters.

Sometimes, the role centers on sex: sex addicts, porn stars, prostitutes. We put together a list of some of the biggest names to get naked for the camera; as long as they are on screen with nothing on. We start with the more subtle shots and the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments, before getting to the A-listers who were happy to let it all hang out! Warning: Because of the nature of this list, it like the films on it! The entire scene screams sex , from her purring voice, to her openly admitting to enjoying sex, to her oh-so-subtle cigarette. Sharon Stone became infamous for the shot, and this scene has been deconstructed many times in university classroom discussions about female power and the male gaze in film.

When tackling their next career move, even A-list celebrities have a lot to consider in regards to what makes the most sense for their professional trajectory. This could mean taking on a role outside of their comfort zone, choosing to "zig" when film audiences expect them to "zag," and, yes, sometimes deciding whether or not to do a movie that requires them to film in nothing but their birthday suit. Baring it all for the big screen may not seem like a major deal today, when so many folks are living what used to be considered private moments across social media for the world to see, but not everyone is so comfortable getting naked for public consumption. Factor in the idea that a nude scene will be projected onto an enormous movie screen where every inch of one's body can be critiqued, and, well, it's enough to make any actor say, "Thanks, but no thanks. Still, there are those brave souls who are either so comfortable in their own skin literally that they're willing to let it all hang out, or those so committed to their art that they've come to terms with the idea that the scene simply requires nudity.
