Fanboys have another reason to get “excited” for Jon Favreau’s upcoming film, Cowboys and Aliens. According to an interview with The Toronto Sun, stars Adam Beach and Olivia Wilde confirmed that the actress gets down to her birthday suit for a scene in the film that features hundreds of extras. We said, HUNDREDS!
The last time we checked, Cowboys and Aliens sounded like another PG-13 project for Favreau, therefore a full on nude scene seems out of character for what he’s trying to do. But according to Wilde,
“I’m naked in front of a group of couple hundred Apache. Pretty amazing, pretty interesting.”
Beach followed up and said,
“We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors… That was beautiful. You won’t get to see what I saw, but you’ll get a glimpse.”
Hey Adam, you sound like a perv (just sayin’). We’re well aware that PG-13 movies can tread the line when it comes to risque content. Who can forget Hugh Jackman’s ass in X-Men Origins: Wolverine or Angelina Jolie’s side-boob in Tomb Raider?
Who knows what Favreau’s going to do with that footage. As long as it’s not over the top and pointless we don’t care. It’s one thing to have nudity but it’s another to have gratuitous nudity. In the words of Ron Burgundy, “Stay classy.”
Do you think they need the nude scene for Cowboys and Aliens? Is it imperative for them to be faithful to the comic?
