Mama Bare: 15 Celebrity Moms Who've Done Nude Scenes

Kate Winslet

We don't really blink these days at an actress going the whole mile when it comes to nude scenes. But something occured to us recently: That beautiful lady baring it on screen is someone's mom. That notion is both empowering to fellow moms out there, and a little worrisome, when we imagine, say, Halle Berry's kids or Angelina Jolie's brood happening upon their mom's movies.

Here's hoping that when these celebrities' kids are old enough to understand, their mamas give them advance warning of what to watch, and when to shield their eyes!

If you were an actress, would you do a nude scene?

    Halle Berry, mom to Nahla and Maceo, was famously paid extra for showing her breasts in Swordfish (2001), but when she went fully nude in Monster's Ball, she won an Oscar. There is absolutely no correlation there.

  • Susan Sarandon

    Perennial hot mama Susan Sarandon, mom of Eva Amurri, Jack Henry and Miles Guthrie, went full frontal for her first movie, Joe, in 1970, and was topless in a whole lot of movies since then.

    Evan Rachel Wood, who's managed to keep her son's name a secret since he was born in 2013, has yet to do a fully nude scene for the big screen, but she did for HBO's Mildred Pierce (2011).

    Kate Winslet's kids, Mia Honey Threapleton, Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, and Bear Blaze Winslet, are probably well aware* of their mom's tendency to strip for the camera in movies like Jude (1996), Titanic (1997) and The Reader. *(OK, maybe not baby Bear)

  • Sharon Stone

    Angelina Jolie, newlywed mother of Pax, Maddox, Zahara, Knox, Shiloh and Vivienne, doesn't have to take off any clothing to be sexy, but she did for Original Sin (2001) and Taking Lives (2004).

  • Kelly Preston

    Before we knew Kelly Preston as John Travolta's wife and the mother of Ella, Benjamin and the late Jett, she was a sexy rom-com cutie, with nude scenes in films like Mischief (1985).

    Salma Hayek, mama to Valentina Paloma Pinault, has gone completely bare just once so far, in Ask the Dusk (2006) with Colin Farrell.

    Lisa Bonet, mother of Zoë Kravitz (pictured), Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa and Lola Iolani Momoa was still Denise Huxtable to all of us when she went nude for a sex scene with Mickey Rourke in Angel Heart (1987).

    It's no surprise that daring model/singer/actress Grace Jones went nude for 1981's Deadly Vengeance; what is surprising is to imagine that she's not only a mother to Paulo Goude, but a grandmother as well.

  • Demi Moore

    Demi Moore, mother of Rumer, Scout, and Tallullah Willis, went all in for About Last Night (1986) and The Seventh Sign (1988), long before she did Striptease (1996).

    Charlize Theron, mama of Jackson Theron, has gone full-frontal only once, for 1997's The Devil's Advocate, but she hasn't exactly been shy about that statuesque body since then.

    Mother of four Nicole Kidman (Isabella Jane Cruise, Connor Cruise, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, Faith Margaret Kidman Urban) went completely bare early on in her career, in Windrider (1986) and Billy Bathgate (1991), and then again for Cold Mountain (2003).
