One thing we don’t talk about enough here is the sheer number of nude scenes some A-list actresses have done. By going nude multiple times in the same film, these A-listers have racked up ungodly amounts of nude scenes throughout their careers! You know all of them by sight as they’ve starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, won Oscars, and even had children who have gone on to have careers. Everyone on this list has amassed over two dozen nude scenes, some who began their careers long ago and two only began going nude in the new millennium! There are three actresses who have done well over three dozen nude scenes, as well as one actress who went nude in every decade from the 60s to the 2010s! It’s a superb list and a walk down mammary lane you won’t regret!
French fox Eva Green kicks off a trend that you’ll see quite a bit of in this list as she went nude in her very first movie! At age 23, Eva stripped down to show off everything in her film debut Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers! As Eva’s star began to rise, she never stopped daring to bare like in 2011's Perfect Sense where she goes topless in the tub! 2014 brought a comic book sequel bonanza with a double dose of nude Eva in 300: Rise of an Empire and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Eva ventured over to the boob tube as well for a skinsational sex scene with the invisible man on Penny Dreadful! Much like Eva, every one of her 28 nude scenes are c’est magnifique!
The only Capital-D Dame on our list, appropriately, Helen Mirren is in a class by herself. At age 24, she bared her spectacular nude body on film for the first time in 1969's Age of Consent! She did so again in Ken Russell’s Savage Messiah three years later, and closed out the 70s going nude in the controversial historical epic Caligula! Just over a decade later, she showed off in the NC-17 flick The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, & Her Lover! Ever fearless, Helen went topless again at age 58 in Calendar Girls, and has the unique distinction of being nude in every decade from the 1960s to the 2010s, racking up 29 nude scenes along the way!
South African native Charlize Theron did her first nude scene in her first credited film, 1996's 2 Days in the Valley, and hasn’t let up on the gas pedal since! Her first foray into big budget Hollywood movies the following year, The Devil’s Advocate, found her going fantastically full frontal in church! Charlize’s star continued to rise when she went nude in 2000's Reindeer Games, and within six years of her career launching, she would win an Oscar! That didn’t stop the skin, though, as she was topless in the tub in 2004's Head in the Clouds, and even had a skinsational sapphic sex scene with Sofia Boutella in 2017's Atomic Blonde! Charlize and her 29 nude scenes never fail to impress!
Having done 30 nude scenes over the course of her career, Angelina Jolie treats nudity as just another day at the office. Jon Voight’s daughter exploded onto the scene with her wild child antics, going topless in her film debut Cyborg 2! She played more bad girls in 1996's Foxfire and 1998's Gia, which saw Angelina take a trip to the Isle of Lesbos and win lots of awards on the way! After winning an Oscar, Angelina continued baring her body in flicks like 2001's Original Sin. She did even more nudity later in her career, going topless in By the Sea, her final film with then-husband Brad Pitt. In truth, she never stopped being a wild child at heart!
One of Spain’s spiciest exports, Penélope Cruz came into this world by going nude in her film debut, Jamón Jamón, at age 18 and she hasn’t looked back! Penélope also has the rare distinction of going topless in 1997's Open Your Eyes and then playing the same role and doing another nude scene in the American remake Vanilla Sky four years later! 2008, the same year she won her Oscar, Penélope also went nude in bed posing for pictures in Elegy, and the following year, she reunited with director Pedro Almodóvar for more nudity in Broken Embraces! Penélope’s 32 nude scenes are just 32 more reasons to love her!
Jake’s older sister Maggie Gyllenhaal has done the family name proud with plenty of acclaimed performances and blockbusters to her name! Our favorite quality of Maggie’s is her fearlessness as an actress, leading her to lots of roles that require nudity! Whether it’s playing a submissive assistant in 2002's Secretary or an ex-con desperate to land a job in 2005's Sherrybaby, Maggie can turn us on and break our heart. Her work on the boob tube has also been stellar, adding to her 32 total nude scenes. Maggie went the full monty in Strip Search, doing very dishonorable things as The Honourable Woman, and playing den mother to porn stars on The Deuce!
Melanie Griffith was destined for stardom, and not just because she was the daughter of Tippie Hedren! Melanie’s own daughter, Dakota Johnson, would further cement the family’s status as sex symbols in 2015 by landing a very nude starring role in the Fifty Shades of Grey series. Melanie broke out in a big way in 1984, breaking out of her clothes for both Fear City and Brian De Palma’s Body Double! Jonathan Demme’s Something Wild cemented her sex symbol status two years later, and a fun bag flash in 1994's Nobody’s Fool reminded us all that with 33 terrific nude scenes, Melanie will always be one of the breast around!
Nicole Kidman’s superstar status is legendary, but her nudity resume is surprisingly extensive. The American-born, Australian-raised beauty has doffed her duds for 41 different nude scenes! Nicole bared all as a gangster’s moll back in Billy Bathgate, stripped down for a sexy time with then-husband Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut, and even had a passionate on-screen affair as half of the titular duo in Hemingway & Gellhorn! By the way, she’s still got it, as her recent award-winning work on Big Little Lies and her bush-only nude scene in The Killing of a Sacred Deer more than prove!
It’s not difficult to believe that Sharon Stone would rank this high on the list considering the sheer amount of nudity packed into her career from the very beginning. With a formidable 46 nude scenes, it seems like Sharon’s been nude on-screen more than she’s been clothed! We’re not sure which phase of Sharon’s career we like best, from her femme fatale days of Basic Instinct and Sliver, or her older, wiser, more lesbian side in If These Walls Could Talk 2 and Basic Instinct 2! Hell, Sharon’s body is still knocking them dead these days thanks to Fading Gigolo! Unlike that flick, Sharon’s sexiness will never fade!
From her early days as a busty vampire bride in Bram Stoker’s Dracula to her peak period performance in the Italian romance Malena, Monica Bellucci is one Italian goddess worthy of poetic praise. She courted controversy with her role in Irreversible the same year she showed off her sexy and seductive side in The Matrix Reloaded! She also knows how to have fun, as demonstrated by her insane sex scene with Clive Owen in the aptly named action comedy Shoot Em Up. It all adds up to a whopping 53 nude scenes, putting her atop the list both in our hearts and in our spank banks!
