Naked Go The Sometime Nude

Last line of a review of Love & Other Drugs confirms my long-held contention that nudity, except in National Geographic situations, breaks the "fourth wall." Nudity in painting, sculpture --even on stage-- can be quite different. Nudity in film, artistically speaking, almost always breaks character. Actresses like to tell themselves they did it "for the character":
Removing Maggie’s and Jamie’s pajamas, however, does little more than make us wonder what, if anything, Hathaway eats, and how often Gyllenhaal goes to the gym.
