Oh dear. At the premiere, Cronenberg told New York that Mortensen suggested the nudity himself when they choreographed the scene, which takes place in a bathhouse. But this was so real.
Women have been paid, down the ages, for taking their clothes off in public: now it seems some of them are being asked to pay, and handsomely too, for the privilege of not taking them off. It is a puzzle conventionally posed just after the one about why so many film directors are men. Last week Billie Piper also spoke out against the continued pressure to appear nude.

Viggo Peter Mortensen Jr. Born in New York to a Danish father and American mother, he was a resident of Venezuela and Argentina during his childhood. Mortensen received international attention in the early s with his role as Aragorn in the epic film trilogy The Lord of the Rings.
October 22nd,pm. Viggo Mortensen's painful nudity Viggo Mortensen's naked fight scene for 'Eastern Promises' was "slippery, painful and embarrassing. Viggo, who plays a Russian mob member in the film, said: "That scene was slippery, painful and embarrassing.
You'll remember that film for an infamous all-nude fight scene in a Russian bathhouse. This time, his nomination comes for Matt Ross' Captain Fantasticwhere he plays Ben, the idealistic father of six children whom he's raising away from modern society in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. It's a sensitive performance that had them weeping in the aisles of Park City, Utah, where the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival around this time last year, and that Mortensen has doggedly promoted and campaigned for for throughout the year, an effort that culminated in the film's only Academy Award nomination despite its critical acclaim and long-ago release date.
When it comes to men, I don't really have a "type," but I tend toward ruggedly handsome, and I'd never kick a set of chiseled cheekbones out of bed. Hence, my enduring crush on Viggo Mortensen. As far as I'm concerned, Viggo is everyone's type.
This summer, the quintessentially un-Hollywood Viggo Mortensen stars in a film about a father of six who rejects the world to raise his kids completely off the grid. How much does this character resemble the actor himself? Let's start with his flip phone.
Throughout his career, Viggo has always challenged himself to give the best performances he can - even if that includes a grueling, realistic fight scene while completely nude. In said scene from Eastern Promises Viggo was given a choice: Wear a towel or be naked in the scene. He decided right away with the physicality of the fight that there is no realistic way he could keep a towel on, so we get to see his very in-shape body, tight buns, and dangling wang in all its glory as he kicks some ass in the raw.
Plus, it was totally hot. Bart Simpson is known for sporting his mischief sometimes in place of his blue shorts. His little saffron-hued rump is permanently etched in the minds of every fan of the TV show, but his totally naked full frontal skateboard ride in The Simpsons Movie caused the Motion Picture Association of America to spank the flick with a PG rating. Those hoping to see his bits and bobs were sorely disappointed.
