Do I audition even if it includes nudity?

@stacylovesart,
Thins are always scary if we've never done them before. Nearest paralell I have is my first time on a nude beach. In that context, it's not a big deal since everyone's nude. In the context though of a movie set, I'd imagine everyone else will be clothed so can be a lot more uncomfortable. But then acting to me would have me fainting just doing regular lines. Smile

I'd imagine that now, nudity isn't what it was even 20 years ago. Much more cross-over from porn and non-porn film now, and doing nudity in non-porn isn't the sort of thing likely to harm anyone's career when some's careers only exist because of a sex tape or porn.

Nudity's always been part of art including film. If it seems 'right' and non-exploitative, do it. Whole field of acting is basicly just exhibition anyway, whether clothed or not shouldn't matter. You wanted people looking at you and thinking about you by becomming an actor in the first place. Doing a nude scene will have how they think of you change some, but not in a negative sense as with times past. Now it's more likely to be, "She's a professional. Did her job well even nude."

UPDATE: In the end I did get the part, in part because the film got delayed for over a year. I shoot my scenes in the next few weeks. Thanks again for everyone's help!

@stacylovesart,
So while I'm still nervous about the nude scene, time (as well as all of your comments, as well as experiencing the body check) have helped me be slightly less nervous about that scene.....which is my main scene in the film, the one where I get to do the most talking.

Suddenly I'm worried about the short sex scene that will proceed that scene. I wasn't originally as nervous about it because I'm going to be mostly dressed in it and not nude......but as time goes by I'm realizing I'm a virgin, can I do a good job of acting like I'm having sex? I know all acting is pretending to be or do something you aren't/haven't, but this is a particular stretch. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

@stacylovesart,
That's why you've became an actress, right? You can slip into a different role and play it convincing. Do you think the actors who play murderers have killed before? I think not, they just are very convincing in their roles.
This is the difference between a good actor and a mediocre one, some can create magic on the screen.
