I think this was the last time she did screen nudity without a body

Although the nudity is exiguous, there are two major stars in
Vanilla Sky: Penelope
Cruz and Cameron Diaz.
This is a remake of a Spanish film, with Penelope Cruz reprising the
role she had played in the original. The Spanish film is terrific,
but the remake didn't work for me for several reasons: (1) Penelope
Cruz was not effective in English at that point in her career. (2)
The mysterious and dark sci-fi ambience was not a good match for
Cameron Crowe's strengths. (3) The film's big kick hinges
on maintaining audience curiosity until a surprise ending explains
all. Since I had previously seen the film in Spanish, I knew the
surprise before I started watching, and was thus cut off from the
film's strongest "hook."

It was quite a surprise for American audiences to see the nudity
from Smith, a former child star and Broadway sensation.
What would a discussion of Spanish nudity be without a mention of
the Grande Dame of nekkid Spanish tootsies, Victoria Abril, who
rarely wears clothes on camera or off.
Here she is in
five clips from Si te dicen que caí, an odd 1989
film in which she plays three roles. Some of the sex scenes are
surprisingly explicit, and Victoria was pregnant with her first son,
Martin. Antonio Banderas co-stars, although the hottest sex scenes
involve Jorge Sanz, not Banderas.
OK, I guess we need a bit of non-Spanish material.
