There are lots of reasons to be excited about the release of “Gone Girl” this weekend, David Fincher‘s big-screen adaption of Gillian Flynn‘s staggeringly successful 2012 novel about a marriage in disarray. But here’s another one to add into the mix—Ben Affleck has a full-frontal nude scene in the movie.
Affleck, of course, isn’t the first big actor to bare it all on the big screen. From Richard Gere’s star-making turn in “American Gigilo” to the fact that Ewan McGregor doesn’t seem to want to keep his clothes on in the movies he stars in, big-time actors have a history of taking it off, and we mean all off, on the big screen.
Click through the gallery above for ten of our favorite full frontal moments, and don’t be embarrassed if you feel the need to re-watch all of these movies.
Ben Affleck in "Gone Girl"
Need another reason to look forward to the release of David Fincher "Gone Girl" which is being released October 3rd? Ben Affleck told MTV News that he does in fact appear fully nude in the movie. “I try to get it in every movie. It’s ironic, because David said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character.What do you think?...There’s some brief, ah, very brief nudity, I think. The penis is in there! It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D. You should know it was very cold.”
