Your Nudity Policy

Think through in advance what you want to respond if/when you are asked to take off some or all of your clothes for a role.

...acting is about living within the circumstances and people get naked from time to time, so in some cases, where it enhances the movie, it's definitely warranted

(from Zurit Zuriel Horowitz's Fairy Tales). King Lear comes to mind as a piece that may validly call for male nudity. Warranted or not, each actor needs to decide for themselves what they are comfortable doing, how naked they are willing to be in public. Once it's captured on camera, it is forever. What are you thoughts on nudity? Please leave a comment.

Good idea: have a nudity clause (rider) in your contracts that specifies what the production can and can not request you reveal on camera or on stage. Otherwise you may be asked to reveal more than you expected.

comments: Thought: If they don't suggest a nudity rider or bring it up first, that's a red flag that says they don't know what they're doing, they haven't done it before, they haven't thought it through. In other words, worst-case scenario, so run!

I honestly don't think I could go nude. I have a decent body and I'm not worried about the um.... how should I put this... dimensions of my member.... but I just don't think I could. Maybe the back end, and I have no problem wearing something skimpy - but that's as far as I could go.
