Actress Rebel Wilson, July’s Marie Claire cover girl, told the magazine that she has a strict “no nudity” clause in her contract, and that it didn’t stop Sacha Baron Cohen from asking her to do full frontal in his latest comedy The Brothers Grimsby.
She told Marie Claire:
“[Filming Grimsby] They wanted full-frontal nudity. We write in the contract, specifically, “No nudity.” They got in another girl — this larger burlesque dancer from South Africa — to be a nude double. And they got her to do all this stuff. Sacha would go, ‘See, she looks good.’ I’m like, I’m not doing it. I don’t care what you say.”
But Wilson might change her mind on the clause someday for the right role in a more serious film. “You want to know that the people [behind the camera] have a certain sensibility and decency. And a lot of times in comedy they’re not those people,” she added.
Wilson also shared that she doesn’t waste time obsessing over her appearance in superficial Hollywood. “I’ve always tried to use my brain to get places,” she said. “There’s so many glamorous people in Hollywood I just never want to compete with that… even the men get their skin lasered.”
