Jessica Chastain was only comfortable doing full-frontal nudity in “Scenes From a Marriage” if her co-star, Oscar Isaac, also bared it all.
“I said in the very beginning, ‘I’m comfortable with all the nudity, but any part of my body that you show, you’re going to have to show the same with Oscar,'” the 44-year-old actress shared while visiting “The View” with Isaac on Friday.
Chastain appears nude in a shower scene in the second episode, while Isaac, 42, appears nude in episode four.
“For me, I wanted it to be balanced,” the Golden Globe-winner explained.
Meanwhile, Isaac claims that he “didn’t know” that his full-frontal scene had made it onto the series and was surprised when people started talking about it
“You get sent the stuff to look at to be like, ‘Okay, I’m fine with that,'” the “Star Wars” actor said. “But I saw it on a laptop quite dark and I didn’t notice what was happening down there.” “I saw it clear as day on the big TV there. It’s there,” he added.
Chastain has been vocal about how nudity on film has bothered her in the past, despite having “no issues” with nudity herself.
“For me, I’m uncomfortable with nudity when it feels like it’s not the person’s decision to be naked, when it’s something that has been put upon them. In a way, I see that as like a victimization,” the actress told Vulture in 2018.
