The horror! Olivia Wilde using CGI nipples in The Change-Up

Jul. 29, 2011by: Paul Tassi

This isn't the first time we've talked about CGI nudity in films, as it was brought up when Jessica Alba employed the technique in MACHETE where she apparently would rather shower in her underwear.

Now it's being used by another hot actress and I guess I still don't quite understand the concept. Here's what Olivia Wilde had to say about her strange use of CGI in THE CHANGE-UP on Jimmy Kimmel.

The former OC grad preserved her modesty in a scene with Ryan Reynolds using pasties but after filming wrapped, producers noticed that Wilde’s pasties were clearly visible and that “they had no choice but to use computer-generated imagery to make the sex scene seem as real as possible.”

Wilde says: “I wasn’t actually naked but now appear to be naked because… in that scene Ryan Reynolds is supposed to be covering them (with his body) and he moved and so the pasties were in the movie and so they had to paint in nipples using CGI. And I got to approve the nipples! They sent me an email saying, ‘Please review nipple cover shot one through seven and decide which one is most like the original.’ I don’t know what he (producer) was using as source material… but I think it’s pretty close.”

Two things: A) Wilde has already appeared topless in ALPHA DOG, so it would seem strange to revert here. Is she shy in front of Ryan Reynolds in particular?

B) I guess I don't quite get the distinction between riding an actor in a sex scene with tiny stickers on your nipples, and just going for the real thing. Is it really that much more embarrassing? Like I'm trying to imagine being a male actor in a movie and walking around with a tiny sock on your dick for a nude scene, then having them CGI out the sock, and put a real dick there. Like, what? Why?

But the fact is, these actresses can do what they want as we don't have the "right" to see them naked, despite what we drooling males may think. If it makes the more comfortable on set, I guess it's their prerogative. But what happens when they stop telling us about it? Will all movie nudity be CGI someday?

Extra Tidbit: Would it taint say, a ScarJo topless scene if you knew it was CGI?

I'm fine with it. Naked or not, Olivia Wilde is still sexy & hot.

All nudity has been CGI since 1986 when the machines took over...

Maybe she didn't like the way her nipples looked in AD and didn't want to do it again.

I don't think it has anything to do with Wilde not wanting to be naked in the film; she seems pretty open minded in interview. I just think that when you ask for nudity, the price tag of an actress goes up, and the more famous the actress, the bigger the bonus. The studio might have decided that it wasn't worth paying that much for so little nudity.

From the sounds of this story I get the impression that the fact that you could see the pasties was completely on accident and had the script called for full nipple exposure she would have done it. So rather than film the entire scene again they just used CGI for the areolas. But still Olivia wilde side/under boob>basically anyone else's full boob.

Ugh, look at how far technology has brought us...

So what I don't get is why do nudity and then later on not do nudity? As it was said in the 2008 Academy Award Winning movie 'Pineapple Express' "Pandora can't go back into the box, he only comes out." Once it's done it's everywhere and unless it's something like Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air, where she had just had a kid, then it seems like a Cop-out. Long story short, either do nudity or don't do nudity, take your pick and stick with it.

I just don't understand this...

if it looks like you are completely nude, why not just go completely nude? what makes the difference between cgi nipples on your breast and your real ones? everyone's just going to think they are your real nipples anyway (unless they read this article, of course.) just doesn't make sense.

I don't think it has anything to do with Olivia Wilde saying "I don't want to do nudity in this movie." It sounds like the producers didn't want nudity in the movie and filmed around it but they made an error and didn't want to do a reshoot.

From everything I've heard the movie seems to have quite a bit of nudity, full-frontal according to some, so I doubt that's it.

Who knows? Maybe she felt the nudity in Alpha Dog was more justified.

I don't see the big deal. Yeah, she went naked in Alpha Dog but that was six years ago, maybe she just doesn't want to get naked on screen anymore. Her choice.
