Young starlets must go nude on-screen, says Rachel WardJune 14th, 2009 - 1:16 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 14 (ANI): Actress Rachel Ward believes that young actresses must bare all on-screen.
Ward, who refused to bare more than her breasts throughout her career, says she now wishes she had appeared fully nude more often.
“If you’re going to be an actress in film, you can’t be coy,” News.com.au quoted as telling The Sunday Telegraph.
“Breasts are sexy. I want to see them and audiences want to see them . . . I’ve certainly had to do my fair share of it. If you’re going to be an actress or a model, it’s usually part of the package,” she added.
However, Ward says that men don’t have to do so because their privates don’t make pleasant viewing.
“We don’t want to see willies because they’re ugly. We want to see breasts because they’re beautiful,” she said.
The 51-year-old said that she has never appeared fully nude in three decades working in film and television, adding that it was ‘a constant battle with directors’ over taking all her clothes off.
“I wish I had. I was just a prudish English girl and I wish I had been less prudish about it really. I don’t think we have a hell of a lot to be serious about at this point,” she said.
“I think that comes with a body of work but to start with it is an incredibly competitive business,” she added. (ANI)
