While bearing a little skin may not be as controversial today as it would have been 30-years-ago, we applaud the following actors who went full frontal in the name of art (or vanity).
Jason Segel proved to audiences that nudity could be used to great comedic effect in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," where he famously dropped his bath towel mid-breakup.
While Kevin Bacon may have committed to more than one full frontal nudity scene, 1998's erotic mystery and thriller, "Wild Things" was the start of it all.
Playing a (you guessed it!) male prostitute in "American Gigolo," Richard Gere managed to woo women on-and-off the screen, with a full frontal nudity scene contributing to his cause.
Unlike many other stars, Ewan McGregor is no stranger to nude scenes, having gone full frontal in more than one movie, such as "Trainspotting," "Young Adam," and "Ghost Writer," just to name a few.
Michael Fassbender's award winning portrayal of a sex addict in the drama film "Shame" arguably required his willingness to go fully nude in front of the camera, which certainly paid off in the end.
While "Color of Night" may not be particularly famous, the movie was credited to have some of the steamiest sex scenes in Hollywood history, along with a shot of a very naked Bruce Willis in a pool.
David Fincher's "Gone Girl" was both a box-office hit, as well as a hit with the critics, although we suspect it had a lot more to do with Ben Affleck's
nude shower scene.
Viggo Mortensen may have made a name for himself playing Aragorn in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but prior to landing his iconic role, he took on a fully nude fight scene in "The Indian Runner."
Tom Hardy underwent yet another physical transformation to play the character of Bronson, a role that required bearing it all, in more ways than one.
