Natalie Portman Nude? Afraid Not

Egotastic has reported the sad news that there will be no actual scenes of Natalie Portman nude in “Goya’s Ghosts”.
For those who haven’t smashed their monitor yet in frustration, Natalie Portman’s agent set the record straight on tonight’s “Access Hollywood”, confirming that the film’s nude torture scene is performed by a nude body double, and not Natalie at all.
Set in late 18th century Spain, the film follows the trials of the friendship between Francisco Goya, Spain’s most famous artist, and the priest Lorenzo who spearheads the revival of the dreaded Inquisition.
Portman plays Goya’s beautiful model Ines who is unjustly imprisoned and tortured by the Inquisition before being raped by Lorenzo.
Oh man! Sounds like a sick movie!
Now, if you want to see Natalie Portman nude, you don’t need to see this movie, rent or watch Closer. She plays a character in this movie that at one point in her life becomes a stripper. Actually she was supposed to have a full frontal nude scene in this movie and it ended up getting cut because the director felt that if it was in there people would go to see the movie just for that. Well, he was probably right, but she still shows enough to make you watch at least up until that part. The movie itself makes your head hurt…
PS My parents actually have a poster of one of Goya’s paintings, we went to the Museum of Mordern Art in NYC back in the late 80’s and they bought one of them. All I can remember was that towards the end of his life his art got freakier and freakier.
