Though he is considerably less bald and golden, Mr. Skin has at least one thing in common with Mr. Oscar: an abiding love of onscreen ladies of the night. Common sense in Tinseltown states that if an actress wants the gods of the Academy to smile upon her, she should play a stripper, a hooker, or a nun. We here at Skin Central are biased towards the strippers and the hookers (though nuns aren’t always so bad), so we're turning on the red light for this skinspiratonal sampling of actresses who’ve gone from walking the streets to walking the red carpet.
Perhaps the most famous cinema call girl is Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (1990). Julia charmed the Academy into a Best Actress nom after charming Richard Gere out of his pants as the ultimate hooker with a heart of gold. Body double Shelly Michelle serves most of the skin in this flick, but in one scene Jules lets a definite nip slip while rolling in the sack.
Elisabeth Shue also works hard for her money- hard enough to win an Oscar for her performance as a streetwalker in Leaving Las Vegas (1996). The scene where she pours Nicholas Cage a tequila body shot in the desert sun still has Mr. Skin all hot and bothered.
Way back in her Hanoi Jane days, Jane Fonda got liberated as a happy hooker in Klute (1971)- and got a little gold man for her trouble. Most of Jane’s nudity in the film is woefully under-lit, but her nice perky lil’ right nip pops up in this well-lit scene.
More recently, Marisa Tomei took off her top to pay the bills in The Wrestler (2008). Mr. Skin thought that Marissa’s hooters were rays of sunshine in the otherwise relentlessly downbeat film, and the Academy must have agreed, since they rewarded her with an Oscar nom.
Grab a handful of sweaty bills, because we've barely stroked the tip of the nude iceberg of skinema sex work, and Mr. Skin is gonna make it rain!
Stay tuned for more Academy-Award winning nudity all this week on the Mr. Skin blog!
