What do Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Garner, Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Emma Roberts, Jenna Fischer, Isla Fisher, Megan Fox and Emma Watson all have in common? Essentially, they’re all female Hollywood A-listers who refuse to get naked on screen.
And while all of these ladies have good enough reasons not to bare it all, the greatest excuse of all time has to go our lady crush from the ’90s Diane Lane. Particular, the reason she decided to not go nude in the 1995 adaptation of the popular 2000 AD comic book, where she portrayed Judge Barbara Hershey, Judge Dredd.
Who could forget? Before Karl Urban put on the famous helmet and was involved in a decent adaptation of the character, Sylvester Stallone felt the need to bring Judge Dredd to the big screen. Fans were in an uproar when the film was initially released. It had almost no relation to the comics or the character. It was campy and Dredd barely even wore his helmet!
Also, the adaptation was R-rated and full of violence, but didn’t offer much in the way of nudity. It was an option, but, as Lane told Yahoo, she opted not to go that route out of concerns over how her ass would look compared to that of her co-star. She said:
I had this phobia that they were going to get my ass onscreen at the same time as Sylvester Stallone’s ass. I’m like Judge Bone, and he’s got these cinder blocks for glutes. I cannot be on-camera the same time as him.
It should be noted that Lane has been nude plenty of times in plenty of other movies. She famously burst onto the scene (quite literally) in the cult classic Ladies And Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains while she was still in her teens. According to Mr Skin she has bared it all in 12 movies in total. At the same time, we totally understand why she would decide not to get her nakedness on this time around.
On a side note, we Googled “Diane Lane butt” and the image below is what we got (it’s from the 1987 film The Big Town). You decide if she had rational derrière concerns or not.
