TV Round-Up

I don't know if this is better or not, maybe, but it's a second HD version of Evan Rachel Wood's nude scene, taken from a different source. Samples below


While we're on this topic:


"This has been bugging me since I first started reading about it. I gotta complain to SOMEBODY. And the fact is, my Priest really wouldn't give a shit. So you seem to be the next logical person, since you make your living off this sort of thing.

It just drives me crazy whenever Evan Rachel Wood's nude scene in Mildred Pierce is referred to as "full frontal" as you did on your splash page this morning.

Every single article mentioning her reluctance to do the scene states that she wore a merkin when she filmed it.

Sorry, but a merkin ain't full frontal nudity, is it? Basically we are seeing a furry thong covering her coochie. It ain't her, it's the work of the prop department. Full frontal nudity means we're seeing whatever god or mother nature put between her legs, right? This isn't god's handiwork. She does have a delightful ass, though.

Speaking of merkins, do we have any idea if Kate Winslett's earlier bush flash was Kate's bush or another merkin? I'm guessing that since Kate normally requires that she appears naked in all her films, she was probably a trooper enough to grow her own, but do we know for sure?

Inquiring minds want to know."


Scoop's note:

Well, I look at it this way. HBO was trying to make all the details of the period as realistic as possible. Therefore, they could not have Rachel strutting around with a shaved crotch, since women didn't do that in the 1930s. So I guess our option was for her to tape on a few pubes or not do the scene at all. Given those choices, I vote for the merkin.

I look at it this way: that show got Rachel to break her resistance. Maybe now she'll do the same thing in a modern-era scene, and we can all see the real McCoy.

I don't know about Winslet, but she seems like the kind of woman who would go natural. She's naked in nearly every movie, and a lot of those films take place in the past, so I suppose she has to stay prepared.


  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.
