Jessica Chastain Explains Why Nudity in American Films Usually Bothers Her

Jessica Chastain is opening up about doing nudity on screen and her thoughts on the differences between American cinema and European cinema.

The Oscar-nominated actress goes nude in the movie Salome, which was her first starring role before she broke into the industry.

“I have no issues with nudity, especially in a lot of European cinema that I adore, but I find that in American cinema, the idea of nudity has always bothered me. I realized why: For me, I’m uncomfortable with nudity when it feels like it’s not the person’s decision to be naked, when it’s something that has been put upon them,” Jessica said in an interview with Vulture.

She added, “In a way, I see that as like a victimization. It trains an audience that exploiting someone in their body should be normal for nudity, when I think the opposite. When people are completely in control of their decisions, that is a really exciting thing. I love the human form — male nudity, female nudity, I’m all about it. I had to get to that place where, for me, it was my decision.”

    This woman is a moron. Even though nudity is much more acceptable in Europe – who says European women aren’t taken advantage of in some cases? Her idiocy offends me as not only a woman but as a human being.
