I've thought it was a body double for quite a while, too. The way the scene is cut, you never her face and her nipples on screen at the same time.

But if it was her, it sure looked like Cameron edited a body double in there.

Similar to Salma Hayek in Desperado.

I donít think there was a body double in Desperado, she speaks in interviews about how difficult the sex scenes were for her.

She has said there is a body double in The Hit Manís wifeís Bodayguard.

Interesting, because the scene is cut much the same way as Linda Hamilton's scene in The Terminator. That's why I always assumed she used a body double in Desperado.

Ron Jeremy is unfit to stand trial for his rape allegations due to dementia.

That was all her in Desperado. The only other film where she gets naked (in a darkened room but you can still see her breasts and nipples) is that experimental film "Timecode." She has a sex scene in that with Stellan Skarsgard.

I tried to branch things off when a thread about sexual harassment became about when people saw nudity in Romeo and Juliet but I couldn't sway the tide of Selma.

If my first naked celebrity has been Salma Hayek at the height of her powers, that would have completely fucked up my expectations for what I was going to see in my real life going forward.

In the same weird way.. Phoebe Cates had a body double in Paradise. However, she's naked throughout much of the movie, but she wasn't fond of filming sex scenes with Willie Ames, so I understand.

I also seem to recall Salma flashing a little bush in the skinny dipping scene in Ask the Dust.

This Assault and Abuse thread has certainly taken a turn. There's another thread for this stuff, can we take that conversation over there?

It certainly says something instructive about women's places in a male-dominated industry that a discussion of female sexual harassment can so easily turn into posts recounting instances of actresses getting naked on film.

I got this :

Sunday Opinion |Harvey Weinstein Is My Monster Too

....I was hoping he would acknowledge me as a producer, who on top of delivering his list of demands shepherded the script and obtained the permits to use the paintings. I had negotiated with the Mexican government, and with whomever I had to, to get locations that had never been given to anyone in the past — including Frida Kahlo’s houses and the murals of Kahlo’s husband, Diego Rivera, among others.

But all of this seemed to have no value. The only thing he noticed was that I was not sexy in the movie. He made me doubt if I was any good as an actress, but he never succeeded in making me think that the film was not worth making.

He offered me one option to continue. He would let me finish the film if I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman. And he demanded full-frontal nudity.

He had been constantly asking for more skin, for more sex. Once before, Julie Taymor got him to settle for a tango ending in a kiss instead of the lovemaking scene he wanted us to shoot between the character Tina Modotti, played by Ashley Judd, and Frida.

But this time, it was clear to me he would never let me finish this movie without him having his fantasy one way or another. There was no room for negotiation.

I had to say yes. By now so many years of my life had gone into this film. We were about five weeks into shooting, and I had convinced so many talented people to participate. How could I let their magnificent work go to waste?

I had asked for so many favors, I felt an immense pressure to deliver and a deep sense of gratitude for all those who did believe in me and followed me into this madness. So I agreed to do the senseless scene.

I arrived on the set the day we were to shoot the scene that I believed would save the movie. And for the first and last time in my career, I had a nervous breakdown: My body began to shake uncontrollably, my breath was short and I began to cry and cry, unable to stop, as if I were throwing up tears.

Since those around me had no knowledge of my history of Harvey, they were very surprised by my struggle that morning. It was not because I would be naked with another woman. It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein. But I could not tell them then.

My mind understood that I had to do it, but my body wouldn’t stop crying and convulsing. At that point, I started throwing up while a set frozen still waited to shoot. I had to take a tranquilizer, which eventually stopped the crying but made the vomiting worse. As you can imagine, this was not sexy, but it was the only way I could get through the scene.

By the time the filming of the movie was over, I was so emotionally distraught that I had to distance myself during the postproduction.

And I thought all of the nudity in Miramax films was high-minded and arty, not Harvey Weinstein sitting behind a desk and asking for more tits and bush.

What do you expect in a forum where any picture of a woman is met with posts about how they would or would not fuck her.

I would say this forum is just a symptom.
