Of the nude scenes we have garnered below, some of them are romantic, some of them are hilarious and others may make you get literal chills with their sexiness. Check out the most iconic nude scenes ever.

Going naked in a film does not necessarily mean pornography. It can represent the beauty and aesthetics within a movie scene. Some other times, it could play as a surprising factor that excludes the movie from the list of the forgettable.

Of the nude scenes we have garnered below, some of them are romantic, some of them are hilarious and others may make you get literal chills with their sexiness.


Alright, brace yourself! Let’s start our fancy extravaganza through the most iconic nudity parts ever.

1. Kate Winslet in "Titanic"


Kate Winslet made it legendary with her famous scene in Titanic. It was where she took off her clothes for a naked portrait sketch by the man (portrayed by the Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio) she had just met for a short while. We can feel all the sexual tension uprising in that scene. It was the same installment where the classic line "Draw me like one of your French girls" was delivered.

And, do hear this fun fact: The drawing displayed in the shoot was actually sketched by director James Cameron. Well, it feels a little awkward, isn’t it? But one way or another, it is still one of the top unique scenes of the movie history.

2. Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct"

We bet if you can name a more famous nude scene than where Sharon Stone keeps uncrossing and crossing her legs in the Basic Distinct movie. The fact is, the situation was literally minus underwear.

However, Stone never knew how revealing that scene was until it was released. As it chanced, the actress says she approves the decision to keep the scene in the film. Sharon Stone said, "It's so right for the movie and so right for the character but if I would have gotten that [shot], even by accident, I would have had the courtesy to show it to my actor."

3. Ben Affleck in "Gone Girl"

The social media lost all its chill when Ben Affleck’s beaver basher came into view in Gone Girl. The famous film was released in 2014. We can say that this individual shower scene officially changes our look at Ben.

On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jennifer Garner, his then-wife, teased about the fact that his private parts became viral after the movie was out:

4. Phoebe Cates in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High"

The bikini cut in Fast Times at Ridgemont High was so popular that there is hardly any 1980s teen that is not aware of it. Phoebe Cates created a whirlwind with her enthrallingly unclipping the red tiny bikini in slow-mo after getting out of a swimming pool.

Cates had done extensive naked scenes in her first movie, Paradise. But it was reported that the actress still was anxious about shooting the pool scene because she was afraid that the neighbors would be peeking from the rooftops. The film could be a bit dated, but that moment? It is timeless.

5. Jason Segel in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"

Once watched the film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, literally, no one can forget the scene where the character of Jason Segel wanders around and eagerly wiggles his schlong in the birthday suit, hoping for sexy time, only to be dumped right after.

It has been more than ten years since the movie first hit the screens. And today, it still appears to be among the most hilarious and impressive film scenes ever made.

6. Mena Suvari in "American Beauty"

The eye-pleasing nude scene of Mena Suvari in American Beauty also deserves to be called the most iconic and beautiful ones in this list. The gorgeous actress is seen lying on a world of rose petals with some covering her private parts. The glamorous moment was so splendid to the point that it has been recreated in pop cultures for countless times. The scene definitely challenges the concept of time.

7. Mark Wahlberg in "Boogie Nights"

Mark Wahlberg

This scene made it to the ranking because of the absolute shock quality. In Boogie Nights, Mark Wahlberg put on a prosthetic to portray professional pornographic actor Dirk Diggler. The scene where the character makes his debut is totally unforgettable. And well, let’s say that it puts our retina on fire.

8. Maggie Gyllenhaal in "Secretary"

Maggie Gyllenhaal 1

Centering around the connection between a dominant manager (James Spader) and his submissive assistant (Maggie Gyllenhaal), Secretary is similar to Basic Instinct with many sensual scenes to look over. Did you watch the spanking scene in the manager's office?

Gyllenhaal, uncovered uproar noticeable all around, being stroked by Spader? Or then again, the scene where he washes her in a tub? Whatever your favorite is, Secretary truly analyzed the basic human need to see, feel and appreciate another person.

9. Robin Wright in "Forrest Gump"

Jenny Forrest Gump

In a scene of Forrest Gump, when Forrest came to find his Jenny, Robin Wright (played Jenny character) is provocative in a surprising way when she just sits casually on a chair, with the guitar covering her totally naked body.

Adding more to that, she seems really cool about that and just singing Blowin' in the Wind of Bob Dylan without any care. We are just as stunned as Forrest when it comes to seeing this scene, aren’t we all?

10. Julianne Moore in "The Big Lebowski"

Julianne Moore In The Big Lebowski 1

The Big Lebowski is among the movies considered to be least predictable. And the moment that makes it earn that title is the scene where Julianne Moore swings in the air to create her piece of art. Well, of course, she swings naked, fully. To be fair, Julianne’s character was making, wait for it, “vaginal art”.

11. Janet Leigh in "Psycho"

Janet Leigh In Psycho

This is probably the nude scene that ranks last in terms of sexiness. The iconic moment is in Psycho when Janet Leigh screaming in the shower while she was being attacked by Norman Bates. Although the scene is indeed terrifying and it doesn’t even have a glimpse of Leigh’s breasts, it was surprisingly risqué.
