Your First Naked Celebrity

Spinning off from the current Romeo and Juliet discussion in the other thread.

I think I was 10 or 11 when my stepfather brought over a huge Beta machine and popped in Terminator for us to watch. Linda Hamilton is the first celeb I saw naked though, shortly afterwards, I'd say the women in the Nightmare and Elm Street/Friday the 13th franchise were hot on the heels of Sarah Connor.

And you?

I posted in the R+J thread but Iím pretty sure it was Jamie Lee Curtis in Trading Places. I was probably only 5 or 6 years old and Iím sure the only reason my parents let me watch it was because it was an Eddie Murphy/Dan Ackroyd comedy.

Whoever the girls in Police Academy were. We had all the premium channels, so once I realized you could see boobies on tv it was on. I would go through the TV Guide every weekend and circle every movie with a "N" or "SC" in the ratings to try to stay up late and watch.

Adding a side note here: My REAL education came when I discovered Blue Nuit, the late night softcore Saturday Night flicks played on the station out of Quebec that we were just close enough to get. Probably why I don't recall much of early 90s SNL. I was busy watching Sylvia Krystal

Yeah, it was probably Porky's or Revenge of the Nerds or Caddyshack, or maybe National Lampoon's European Vacation. I also remember watching stuff like Beast Master at a drive through. I have no idea why my parents let me watch this stuff.

Best I can recall it was Bo Derek in 10.

Unless you count Heavy Metal. That might have been first.

Re: Your First Naked Celebrity

not sure who she was but in the opening scenes of 1941 there is a topless scene involving a submarine periscope and a skinny-dipping, saw the movie at the drive-in when it came out and was in front of the car in a lawn chair so my parents could not make me avert my eyes. Maybe this is why I still love the drive-in? .

Sounds like the "Baby Blue Movie" show featuring softcore porn that CityTV in Toronto broadcast in the 70's on Friday nights (later revived in the 90's). This show, and channel, was the inspiration for Cronenberg's Videodrome film.

Unless you fast forwarded or something, wouldn't Phoebe Cates have been first?

Or am I misremembering because I was fast forwarding?

Heavy Metal was released 2 years after 10.

She's Susan Backlinie. Techincally, she would be the first, not from 1941.. but from Jaws (1975). Tho I wouldn't consider her a celebrity.

Jacqueline Bisset is comes pretty close in 1977, but I would think Bo Derek (1979) although she's not all that naked in 10.

JJL is topless before Phoebe is in Fast Times. Stacey loses her virginity to the stereo salesman in the baseball dugout.

Re: Your First Naked Celebrity

Maybe there was something on home video that had a quick flash of nudity that didn't register with me at the time, but when I was 7 my parents took me to the drive-in for a double-feature of Rambo First Blood Part 2 and Lifeforce, which was chock full of nudity courtesy of Mathilda May.

I'm in a JAWS FB group and its full of Middle Aged Men and Women. Pretty sure for most of the dudes "Chrissy" at the beginning of JAWS was their first one.

I can't remember which one it was for me.

I'm old, so my first was Sarah Miles topless in Ryan's Daughter 1970.

My older sister took me and my other sister. She had no idea there was nudity. Even though it was originally rated R, MGM appealed for financial reasons and it was re-rated GP, later PG. It has since been re-rated back to R.

Re: Your First Naked Celebrity

My mom dragged me to see Monsignor (No complaints from me since "Superman" was the star of it) so I guess GeneviŤve Bujold (Keeping with the Canadian theme in this thread ) was my first naked celeb.

But as far as celebs that I actually knew of at the time, I'm guessing it would be Kelly LeBrock's brief bits in Woman in Red (I saw it after Weird Science)

There's various titties seen throughout, but Monique Gabrielle's were the most prominent.

I remember seeing Walkabout when I was in a theater, so probably Jenny Agutter when I was about 8.

It was wasted on me. At that age, I was more excited to see Rambo.
