Since 1999, Mr. Skin has been the world’s #1 resource for celebrity nudity from movies and TV. Now, to celebrate those 10 years, Mr. Skin is counting down the 100 Greatest Celebrity Nude Scenes of All Time.
So what made the list and why?
First, each scene had to come from a movie or TV show—no paparazzi shots or homemade sex tapes. Other factors included:
Star power of the naked celeb
Quality of nudity (i.e., what gets shown, how long it lasts)
Overall impact on popular culture and skinema history
One movie per actress (for often–nude stars, we chose their one all–time best scene)
One scene per movie (in a film that contains many nude scenes, we picked the best)

(0:38) Dynamic and delicious, Pam primes a horny hopeful by peeling off her orange jumpsuit and puka-shell necklace to reveal her high-rise rump and gigantic, gravity-mocking bosom.
As the Queen of Blaxploitation, Pam starred in one classic after another. Among them: Black Mama, White Mama (1972), Hit Man (1972), Friday Foster (1975), Bucktown (1975), and Sheba, Baby (1975).
Coffy is not only Pam’s best nudity, it’s her best-loved film and one of her great collaborations with director Jack Hill. The others: The Big Doll House (1971), The Big Bird Cage (1972), and Foxy Brown (1974).
In The Arena (1973), Pam is a gladiator in ancient Rome. In Drum (1976), she’s a slave in the Old South. No wonder this timeless knockout has been dubbed “The Baddest Blacktress That Ever Was!”
(0:25) Sex on wheels! As ’70s-era porn star Rollergirl, Heather leaps out of her dress in one fell swoop, revealing her two swell scoops and naturally blonde pubic mound—while making sure to leave her skates on.
Before Boogie Nights, Heather’s most notable role was opposite Coreys Feldman and Haim in License to Drive (1988). Baring all made her an immediate superstar.
To promote Boogie Nights, Heather appeared nude on a fold out Vanity Fair cover, painted gold from head to toe—or, actually, from head to trademark roller-skates.
Aside from Heather, Julianne Moore appears memorably nude in Boogie Nights, as do real-life porn stars Skye Blue, Summer Cummings, and Nina Hartley.
(0:26) Stark naked Elizabeth struts off to a strip-club lap-dance room with Gina Gershon and Kyle MacLachlan. Elizabeth then growls, grunts, and power-grinds atop Kyle’s pants while Gina watches to an explosively sticky climax.
This is the greatest lap dance of all time—and not just in the movies. This is the greatest lap dance anywhere, ever, period. And Showgirls is Mr. Skin’s favorite movie ever too.
Pre-Showgirls, Elizabeth starred as Jessie Spano on TV’s Saved by the Bell. Then she took lessons from real strippers, dyed her pubes blonde, and forever after changed her image.
Elizabeth earned just $100,000 for Showgirls. On video, the movie has generated in excess of $100 million. When she asked for $2,500 to do an interview for a special edition DVD, the studio declined.
(1:05) After oiling up and working over Mimi’s bare butt, master masseur Bryan Brown applies history’s luckiest hands to her mammoth, mouth-watering breasts, kneading their hugeness, tweaking her nipples, and making the whole world jealous forever.
Volcanically voluptuous Mimi bared boobs in The Rapture (1991) and Bulletproof Heart (1994), but her full body exposure in Full Body Massage came as a stunning surprise.
Full Body Massage premiered on Showtime on November 5, 1995—a date that will live in skinfamy!
Director Nicolas Roeg also helmed Walkabout (1971), which features a constantly naked Jenny Agutter, and Castaway (1987), where Amanda Donohoe also gets nude non-stop.
15 Jaime Pressly nude in Poison Ivy 3: The New Seduction (1997)
(0:13) Embodying the ultimate teen temptress, Jaime steps to the edge of a bathtub and drops her robe to reveal her perfectly round, exquisitely sculpted ass. When she eases into the water, we see her big, buoyant boobies to boot.
Prior to making Poison at 19, Jaime was a champion gymnast and jet-setting fashion model. “I worked my ass off for this body,” she declared, “and I enjoy it!”
HBO promoted Poison Ivy 3 with a barrage of shock ads highlighting Jaime in a thong. As a result, the movie premiered to record ratings on May 20, 1997.
Other Poison Ivy installments specialize in grown-up child stars going nude: Drew Barrymore in the 1992 original, Alyssa Milano in Poison Ivy 2: Lily (1996), and Miriam McDonald in Poison Ivy 4: The Secret Society (2008).
(1:02) After gym period, Kaki and her female classmates hit the showers for a fully nude scrub session while three heroically horny heroes from the boys’ basketball team spy on them through holes in the wall.
In this one moment alone, Porky’s achieves cinema’s greatest peep scene, as well as its greatest group shower.
Porky’s takes place in the 1950s, which explains the naturally hairy pubic hairstyles, which prompt one peeper to proclaim: “I’ve never seen so much wool. You could knit a sweater!”
Made on the cheap, Porky’s blockbuster success ignited the 1980s’ teen-sex-comedy revolution, which also brought us Zapped! (1982), Joysticks (1983), Screwballs (1983), Valley Girl (1983), Fraternity Vacation (1985), et al.
(0:44) Shannon steps into a bedroom that’s equipped with a spy camera, unaware that dudes from school are watching her online. She removes her shirt, massages her knockers, then diddles herself to a porn mag.
American Pie revived the classic ’80s-style teen sex comedy.
Raunchy, rack-packed, R-rated campus farces that followed in Pie’s wake include Varsity Blues (1999), Road Trip (2000), Sorority Boys (2002), and Van Wilder (2002).
Pie also spawned two theatrical sequels—American Pie 2 (2001) and American Wedding (2003)—plus three direct-to-DVD follow-ups: American Pie Presents Band Camp (2005), American Pie Presents The Naked Mile (2006), and American Pie Presents Beta House (2007). All feature great nudity.
(1:35) Standing in a swamp with Greg Kinnear, Katie unwraps her top and gifts us with her potently perky C-cups. Kinnear obviously doesn’t know how to accept such generous presents, so he immediately strangles her to death.
Katie was at the height of her fame as Joey Potter on the TV drama Dawson’s Creek when she granted us access to her Dawson’s Peaks.
The Gift is Katie’s only nude scene to date and, given her marriage to the slightly image-conscious Tom Cruise, it will likely be her last—so long as that couple remains so happy.
The Evil Dead, director Sam Raimi’s 1981 debut, oozes nakedness and freaky sex, but The Gift is his lone effort since then to feature even one real nude scene.
