We had talked about it. My idea of nudity, as of now, so don’t hold me to this, this is how I feel at this moment, is that if it makes sense for the film and it’s not in a sexual way… I feel like you can do sex scenes that are really sexy, without having to see nudity.

I think he did it really tastefully, and for a very short period of time. Short enough that my parents won’t want to kill themselves I think that it works for the movie because you are being a voyeur in her world, and so it sort of happens that you see her like that. So I said, ‘Okay, Tony, I trust you!’”
