Lawrence Is Fine With Nude Roles

Rising star Jennifer Lawrence has refused to rule out appearing nude onscreen.

The Hunger Games star has no problem with nudity in films, and admits she’d happily shed her clothes on camera if she felt it was necessary for the role.

Lawrence tells Britain’s Glamour magazine, “So far, I haven’t found a film I’d love to be naked in, but I certainly never look at an actress naked in a movie and judge her. It’s a human body, which is a beautiful thing, right? So stay tuned…”

The Oscar-nominated 21-year-old has had a taste of what to expect being naked on screen – she appeared in nothing but blue paint and prosthetics in 2011’s X-Men: First Class.

Richardson’s competitors were The Artist‘s Guillaume Schiffman, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘s Jeff Cronenweth, The Tree of Life‘s Emmanuel Lubezki, and War Horse‘s Janusz Kaminski. Lubezki was the critics’ favorite and the winner of the American Society of Cinematographers Award — which Richardson has never won despite his ten nominations. On the other hand, Richardson has taken home three Academy Awards. Besides Hugo, he won for Scorsese’s The Aviator, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and Oliver Stone‘s JFK, starring Kevin Costner. Below is the Robert Richardson Q&A (courtesy of AMPAS) held in the Oscar 2012 pressroom. Q. You did make a comment on stage about the cinematography award being first. Were you serious? Is that something that’s »
