Uncle Scoopy's Fun House at scoopy.net is a daily internet e-zine dedicated to keeping its readers abreast and abuttock of the latest in celebrity nudity.

Having produced a new dated edition every single day since 1995, it may be the oldest continually updated blog still in existence. It's part of the Scoopy universe of sites, which includes The Movie House, French Cinema Nudity,  and Other Crap.

In December of each year, the Fun House runs a members' poll to select the best nude performances among that year's releases.

This year's competition was open to films and TV shows which were released in 2011, or other nude scenes not eligible before 2011. On this page Scoop and the members present the poll results, our equivalent of the Oscars, as the top nude performances of 2011.


It went down to the wire. Although Emmy Rossum built up a head of steam at the end of the voting, she and Kirsten Dunst ran neck-and-neck through the early stages.

To quote ol' blue-eyes, it was a very good year.

Two years ago I wrote, "Once again the list was dominated by cable TV shows, straight-to-vid films, arthouse films and specialty products. There were very few nude scenes from films which reached wide general distribution, and the best of those included no established stars."

Three years ago I wrote, "There is barely a pubic hair to be seen among the top finishers."

Those conditions are well on their way to being turned around.

  • Many of the top finishers of 2011 are popular girls-next-door who took it all off for the camera in major projects. Melancholia has been chosen by some as the film of the year. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Drive Angry were wide releases.
  • Although there are still plenty of TV shows on the list, they are not Cinemax quickies, but highly regarded shows like Mildred Pierce, Game of Thrones, and Shameless. A quick scan down the page will tell you that most of them were in their first year of existence, thus promising more in the future.
  • There are pubes to be seen from major stars like Kirsten Dunst, Evan Rachel Wood, and Carrie Mulligan.



Esme Bianco and Sahara Knite in Game of Thrones

(season 1)

Game of Thrones, I bow to thee! This would be the most interesting show on TV without the nudity, and the nudity is brilliant as well!


Liv Tyler in The Ledge

(6.5 at IMDb)

When Liv had just turned 18, she appeared topless in Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty. That seemed like an auspicious start for a career of bare flesh, but that happened in 1996, and she has not done a nude scene between that one and this one.


Eva Green in Camelot

(in the one and only season)

Speaking of Bernardo Bertolucci, the great Italian director made Eva Green the once and future queen of 21st century nudity with her nude performance in The Dreamers. That remains the best nudity of the millennium. It will probably be a while before anything comes along combining beauty, photography, star-power and nudity better than Bertolucci and Eva did in that film.

She has a bit more meat on her bones now than she did in The Dreamers, but as you can see to the right, those breasts are still epic.

In addition to exposing her killer body, she was also the most interesting character on Camelot. Unfortunately, Eva was just about the only really good thing about the show, which has now been cancelled, forcing us to obtain our Eva Green fix elsewhere.


Keira Knightley in A Dangerous Method

(7.0 at IMDb)

I can tell you one reason why you might want to see this Jung biopic which takes itself much too seriously:

Michael Fassbinder whips the daylights out of Keira Knightley's ass, while her small breasts flop around freely and she climaxes with thundering force.

What else happens, you wonder?

Some stuff. Does it really matter?

Elena Anaya in The Skin I Live In

(7.7 at IMDb)

Elena is the new Winslet. She seems to make the list every year in some arthouse film or another. This year it was Almodovar's peculiar La Piel Que Habito, in which Elena managed to cover up very little piel.



Charlotte Ross in Drive Angry 3D

(5.6 at IMDb)

Not every director has to take nude scenes seriously. This romp between Charlotte Ross and the always quirky Nic Cage is entertaining, but more funny than sexy.


Helene Zimmer in Q

(5.1 at IMDb)

Two women made the top twenty list from this obscure French film. Tell you anything?

Is your guess locked in?

It is a VERY naughty French film. See the comments about #7, Deborah Revy.


Sara Rue in For Christ's Sake

(7.6 at IMDb)

The IMDb score for this film is misleading. Nobody has actually seen it. The score is based on seven votes. But I can tell you this: based solely on the one very brief and rather inexplicit topless scene which made it to the internet, Sara made it to the annual top twenty list alongside all the heavy hitters.


First, it's a very cute scene. I recommend it.

Second, Sara has breasts which are larger than several European countries.


Saralisa Volm in Hotel Desire

(5.5 at IMDb)

Like Q, this is a deliberately transgressive European film which hopes to extend the boundaries of what may be portrayed on camera in a suburban theater.

Unfortunately, like Q, it's just not a very good movie, but perhaps it can blaze a trail for better films to expose the private parts of public figures.


Evan Rachel Wood in Mildred Pierce

(mini-series; 7.9 at IMDb)

Kate Winslet has already made all of our lives better by  establishing that top-notch actesses need to get naked when the role demands it, but she is not content merely to set a good example. In this case she actually persuaded her co-star, Evan Rachel Wood, to take it all off.

You'll love looking back on it and seeing how beautiful you were, said the mentor to her pupil.

Thank you, Winslet. I don't know whether you were actually right, but the important thing is that your advice benefited me.


Sara Forestier in Le Nom des Gens

(7.3 at IMDb)

I don't know anything about her, but Sara was naked for much of this movie  - and not in private, but in recognizable public locations! It's a performance that would have easily taken #1 for the year if delivered by an A-lister like Natalie Portman.


Carey Mulligan in Shame

(8.0 at IMDb)

By all accounts Carey may turn out to be the Meryl Streep of her generation, so it's great to see an acclaimed stage and screen actress getting stark naked and flashing her pubes.

Especially since it seems to be too late for Streep

Although some beaver shots could have made that Maggie Thatcher movie a lot more exciting.



Laura Wiggins on Shameless

(season 1)

As far as Shameless goes, this girl sort of got lost in Rossumania, but she plays a great second fiddle.

This particular scene, with Wiggins deliberately embarrassing William Macy, is very sexy and very funny, and she looks beautiful in the tub.


Morena Baccarin on Homeland

(season 1)

Another beautiful Brazilian (do they have any ugly chicks there?) , made extra popular by her appearances at comic-con and in geek shows of all kinds, like Firefly, Stargate SG-1 and V.


Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones

(season 1)

I was already pleased with Emilia Clarke's nudity in this award-winning show before the final episode, but when she emerged from the fire with her clothes burned off but her body unscathed, covered only by some ashes and some baby dragons, I was sold.

Great series. Great nudity from many performers, especially Emilia.



Rooney Mara in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

(8.2 at IMDb)

5 nude scenes.


Plus another scene where she rapes a naked guy.

Where can Rooney go from here?


Kathleen Robertson on Boss

(season 1)

I have three wishes for Boss in 2012:

1. That the show gets renewed.

2. That Kathleen ramps up the nudity.

3. That they figure out how to broadcast this damned show in good quality instead of the grainy, dark, often blurry presentation that marked their first year. What is the deal? Did they do that on purpose?

(I don't know whether the Blu-Ray is clear or marked by the same fuzziness. It is not yet available as I write this.)



Deborah Revy in Q

(5.1 at IMDb)

If two women from the same film make our annual list, it's a surprise even when they're both big names in a major film, so you can imagine how unlikely it is for the list to feature two unknown women from an obscure and poorly-reviewed French film.

What's the deal?

Revy and Helene Zimmer, mainstream actresses, spend just about the entire film getting completely naked and having real sex - yup - blow, hand and other jobs right there on camera. Real dicks in real mouths. 

So what are the chances of that happening in an American movie. You reckon this one will get a re-make with Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow?

Don't hold your breath.

Unless, of course, you're auditioning for Q 2.


Lucy Lawless and Jaime Murray in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena

(prequel season)

I thought I was going to vote for Autumn Reeser this year, but I re-watched this scene when I was assembling the clips for this poll, and decided that I couldn't make up my mind. I never did vote in my own poll this year!

NOTE: I have not looked at the Blu-Ray yet, but one of the special features is intriguingly called, "content too risqué for cable TV."



Autumn Reeser in The Big Bang

(5.5 at IMDb)

My son loves this scene. He's been following Autumn's career on The O.C. and Entourage, and was shocked to find out that she had done such a hot scene, because this film is utterly obscure (and not especially good).

The extended version of this sex scene just goes on and on. It's kind of a throwback to the Age of Aquarius: gentle and weird and erotic at the same time.


Lake Bell in How to Make it in America

(in the one and only season)

You may have noted that the nudity in this scene is nowhere near as impressive as that which can be seen in the other top finishers.

Then why did it place so high?

Dude, look at that woman. Look at that chest. And we had never seen it before. 'Nuff said.


Emily Browning in Sleeping Beauty

(5.4 at IMDb)

No comment necessary.

Poker players say, "cards speak for themselves."

Same rule applies to the picture to the right.




  Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia

(7.4 at IMDb)

Kiki appeared on the annual best nude scene list for the first time last year with her chest, and almost made it right to the top this year by adding the bottom half of her body.

What's next?


Emmy Rossum on Shameless

(season 1)

When Emmy was cast in this American adaptation of the hit British series, multiple alarms went off in my head. I thought she was too refined and sweet to play the blue-collar part as it needed to be played, and I thought she would never do all the raunchy sex and nudity.

Boy am I glad to have been wrong.

If you're not a little bit in love with this woman, there's something wrong with you, sparky. She can play any part; she's a good sport who shows a great sense of humor when she visits Conan; she's adorable; she sings like an angel; she has a killer bod.

And as this first place finish demonstrates, she will get as naked as the role demands of her. (And it demanded even more than what you can see in the sample picture to the right.)


For comparison or further study, you may want to consider the following list of links.

Why wait until the end of the year? See all the nude scenes when they happen, in the highest quality available.

And catch all the paparazzi shots as well!

And don't forget the archives, which include about a million pictures of naked celebrities and tens of thousands of film clips, including plenty in high definition, with more added daily.  There's no better value on the internet than an annual subscription to scoopy.net for less than thirty cents per day!
