Technology is evil, Jessica Alba's nudity in Machete was CGI

10.19.2010

Sure, CGI has brought dinosaurs and aliens and ancient civilization to life, but now it's being employed for more devious purposes.

It's come to light that during Jessica Alba's rather excellent partially nude scene during MACHETE, she wasn't actually naked at all. Rather, she was wearing underwear that was digitally replaced with skin after the fact. See below:

I suppose it makes her technically not a hypocrite for saying "No, I’ll never do a nude scene. I can act sexy and wear sexy clothes but I can’t go naked" in the past, but it is worrisome for future movie nude scenes. How are we to know what's real and what's CGI if this becomes the norm when the technology is sufficiently advanced?

Furthermore, I don't even understand this. If the end result is her APPEARING naked through this tech, which almost no one would have caught as being illegitimate in the two seconds this shot appeared in the film, why wasn't she just naked in the first place? The only thing I can think of is her not wanting to be naked on set (though in this case, nothing was actually shown, and she could have been wearing protective pasties or something), or so she can just be secure in her own mind that she's never done a nude scene, even if the entire world thinks she has. Both of these reasons are stupid.

What do you make of this?

D: Look, I understand that you guys are supposed to be reporting movie news, but there are just some bits you shouldn't be telling people. Especially yer young, red blooded male audience members. This is sad and disheartening.

Boy, do I hate that bitch. I love that Casey Affleck beats the fuck out of her in Killer inside Me. Awesome movie but even better with her getting fucked up, not to mention Kate Hudson too.

Lame

Okay, you mean to tell me you can't get a better actress who actually has the simple acting skills and moral self security to do a F***ing nude scene? Please?

Hasn't anyone seen The Killer Inside Me?

Alba is naked practically every second she's on screen, tons of side boobage and everything else and a pickle. So why CGI it in Machete but not in TKIM where she shows off more.

Give it about 10 years to see the real goods.

I'll bet that once her face starts to go, her morals will follow suit.

I don't mind actresses who refuse to take their clothes off; it's their body and their decision to make.

What bothers me is that between this and the stripper who didn't strip in Sin City, we have here an actress that doesn't play the parts to be considered a serious actress and that plays the sexy card too much for someone who doesn't do nude scenes.

If she doesn't want to do nude scenes, she has to stop sitting between two chairs and only do parts that don't require any!

I think Lohans were real (not in the pool scene, obviously, but later when she wakes up in the church.

Yeah, I don't understand being okay with fake nudity but upset with real nudity, especially since this may set a precedent and, as a guy who can't land women who look like Jessica Alba, I wish to continue seeing the legitimate nudity of attractive actresses.

Wow

The very fact that so many of you are actually upset about this is not only sad, but pathetic. Jessica Alba has no obligation to get naked for you and in fact, she has no obligation to even be shown digitally nude either. If anything she is doing you a favor by doing even that.

And as far as her "not devoting herself" to the role goes, that is one of the single most retarded arguments that I've ever heard. That would be just like saying that anyone who has ever died in a movie isn't

That would be just like saying that anyone who has ever died in a movie isn't devoting themselves to their role because they chose to not actually get shot for the sake of their fans.

If this is what makes you want your money back, they have have truly lost all scope and concept of what the movie industry is. I'd actually be willing to bet that you never understood it to begin with.

I don't know, looking at the comparison pic, the underwear looks like it was photoshopped on her rather than the other way around. I mean look at the bra, it looks fake. Just saying.

CGI Changed her Body Too

Not only did they CGI out here underwear to make her appear nude, but look at the following areas:

TUMMY: She had a little belly in the old shot, and they removed that and smoothed her tummy out in the CGI shot.

THIGHS: It is well known that a woman's body changes shape once she squeezes out a rugrat. They made her thighs smaller in the CGI shot if you compare them to the original shot. They are more narrow.

Originally her body and looks were all she had going for her because she

Now....All she has is the face. She already wrecked her body via childbirth....it's only downhill from here.

Its a bunch of crap

She knows that she cant act and her only talent is her looks. She will never be a leading lady and she knows that what we want to see, so she fakes it. Nudity has boosted many a career (Heather Graham and Sharon Stone) without it they wouldnt have been stars and they have way better reviews for their work then she does. If the scene is 2 seconds and you say your against it, why film it at all? Very scummy. We dont watch Alba for acting we do for looks, so when you sell looks and leak pics of

We dont watch Alba for acting we do for looks, so when you sell looks and leak pics of said nudity it seem wrong that none of it was real. I mean a basic instinct movie where Kathy Bates is the actress but they GCI her to have a killer body when naked in the movie, would that be ok, I mean its the same thing? Why even have beautiful people in movies? Take an ugly actor with great talent and CGI their face with someones else who looks good.

NUDE SCENES OVERRATE, JUST WATCH PORN

BE HONEST, Do you rather watch porn for your nakedness, or just watch these skinny, no meat girls on scenes? There are thousands of porn girls that can't act, but their body is awesomely hot!! LOL

So what?

If she doesn't want to go nude, then she doesn't want to go nude. She's still perfectly wankable with clothes on and there's plenty of porn for you guys to find on the internet. She said she grew up in a very Christian family, so I respect her for keeping her morals.

I just assumed the underwear shot was the CG shot because she couldn't be naked in the trailer.

I don't understand the logic. If an actress won't go nude it's ussually for one of two reasons: Integrity or not wanting to spoil the goods. If everyone assumes by seeing this that you're nude then what's the point? Why not be a real actress and immerse yourself in the part? Oh well, there's always Kate Winslet.

Oh well.

Lohans was obvious but i didnt see this coming. Honestly i doubt there is much difference in what is there and what is perceived to be there. Im not looking to get off on a side shot shower scene so its really whatever. I guess good for her for respecting her body for a 2 seconds shot. Honestly the killer inside me was worse then what she showed here imo so why fret now?

It is part of the fantasy

I don't see what the big deal here is, the only reason that most of the people here want her to do a nude scene is so it can go up online and we can all have it in our digital spankbank. Which ironically enough is probably why she doesn't want to do one in the first place. We could debate the validity of what is or sin;t in the moves to our hearts content, it won;t change the fact that IT IS ALL FAKE!!!!

What I find most amusing, is that they gave her a digital tummy tuck as well.

maybe...

when they shot this, Jessica Alba thought the scene was going to be her in her underwear, then Rodriguez changed it in post-production without Alba's knowledge.

at least that what i like to think. that sneaky director.

What's the difference? If you saw a CGI altered nude photograph of Alba alongside a genuine nude photo of her in the same pose nobody would know the difference.

Um

If she doesn't want to take her clothes off for a movie guys then that's pretty acceptable.

The reasoning's aren't stupid at all. There was a shower scene, she didn't want to be naked, someone told her that it was doable with her being clothed, so she shot it that way.

Makes perfect sense to me, I know I'd prefer to shoot the scene with my clothes on if someone gave me the option, it's not like it's a long and pivotal scene in the movie in which the nakedness is important to the story.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I have heard about this. And I think in one of the trailers you can see the non-CGI'd shot. But whatever. With all the airbrushing and digital tweeking with all the models in magazines and ads, it's not as if this is any surprising. Just please don't tell me all of Anne Hathaway's nude scenes in her movies were fake. Those were great!
