It's known as "Hollywood magic" for a reason. When it comes to movies, audiences expect to be dazzled with everything that appears on the screen. Movie-goers want to be transported by what they're watching. They're ready to pretend that that CGI character is real, those buildings really blew up, and that those famous actors are actually appearing nude in that sex scene. Unfortunately, thanks to careful edits and image-savvy stars, that's not always the case.
Behind-the-scenes movie tricks aren’t limited to traditional special effects. Hollywood star body doubles are more in demand that you might think, whether you're considering classic nude scenes or more contemporary hits. Even beautiful stars aren't always comfortable stripping down on screen for a sexy skinny dip or steamy love scene. True, real sex can happen onscreen in the movies, but it's pretty rare.
If you want to keep believing that you've actually seen the naked bodies of Mila Kunis or Isla Fisher, you should stop reading here. For everyone else, read on to discover what famous flicks tricked you with nude scene body doubles.
In the raunchy comedy Wedding Crashers, there's a memorable sex scene between Fisher and co-star Vince Vaughn. But not much of that skin showing was actually hers. Fisher explained her reasoning behind getting a body double: "My argument was, if you see a character’s breast, she’s no longer funny. You see her as someone sexual rather than as someone funny."
