I don’t usually like to go into a situation where I doubt what they are saying is true. Said slightly differently, I want to believe what you say. So, I’m finding it rather difficult to believe Jessica Biel when she says:
I definitely worry about how my family would react. You can’t help thinking about your dad or brother seeing something. I don’t have to be fully naked for the movie. I haven’t decided exactly about the nudity. It’s a tough one. I’m considering it but it’s a very scary thing to do. It definitely feels vulnerable to be naked in front of anybody, let alone a film crew.
But consider the contract she signed that, according to the article, “details the bare minimum fans will see – including shots of her breasts (nipples from the front and side) and her butt (side view only).”
So, here’s a woman who claims she’s conflicted. She doesn’t want to be exploited (pictures of her body all over the Internet) but she wants to do the movie. I believe that this is a case of actions speaking louder than words.
To me, if you didn’t want to do the nudity in the movie, you don’t do it. There’s a principle here. If you say “Oh, I don’t want to do this”, but then you do it anyway at worst you’re tempted and gave in and at worst you’re a liar/hypocrite.
