MrSkin has a Top 10 list of ten actresses who have appeared nude in movies in four different decades. A couple of hints: seven of the actresses appeared nude in the decades of the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's; two were in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's; and one was nude in all five decades. There are four American actresses, two British actresses, two French actresses, one Anglo-American actress and one German actress on the list (but all have appeared in American movies).

Can you name all ten actresses? And for bonus points, name at least one movie from each decade in which they've made a nude appearance?

Helen Mirren for sure - I think she might be the 5-decade one.

Helen Mirren
Racquel Welch
Diane Lane
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Natassia Kinski
Dorothy Lamour

. . . that's all I could come up with. That's five of them, anyway.

ERASE Dorothy Lamour. But she WOULD have been one of them for sure had they done nude scenes back then!

Helen Mirren
Diane Lane
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Natassia Kinski

. . . .Okay so all I can come up with is four.

Diane Lane is 43 and Jennifer Jason Leigh is 46 so neither of them were doing nude scenes back in the seventies. And while Raquel Welch has been making movies long enough and is a sex symbol, she's never done any actual nude scenes.

Mirren and Kinski are correct.

Jane Fonda?

I'm going to toss Catherine Deneuve and Sally Kellerman into the pile as guesses. Can't name movies from each decade, but I remember them not seeming to mind losing clothing.

While we're on the Sally Ks, how about Sally Kirkland?

I just remembered that "10" came out in the late 70s, so Bo Derek?

Susan Sarandon and Melanie Griffith seem to be nude a lot. Maybe Jodie Foster or Mary Steenburgen?

Many more have done it than should, anyway.

Ann Margret and Bo Derek were so good at it.

Correct guesses so far: Kim Cattrall, Catherine Deneuve, Melanie Griffith, Goldie Hawn, Barbara Hershey, Natassia Kinski, Helen Mirren, and Charlotte Rampling. Sally Kellerman and Sally Kirkland have done nude scenes in four different decades so they are correct guesses. But they weren't on the original list of ten. So there's still two more to go.

On some of the other guesses:

Julie Andrews - appeared nude in three movies in the 70's and 80's
Ann-Margret - appeared nude in the 60's, 70's, and 80's
Glenn Close - appeared nude in three movies in the 80's
Jamie Lee Curtis - appeared nude in the 80's, 90's, and 2000's
Bo Derek - appeared nude in the 70's, 80's and 90's
Jane Fonda - appeared nude in the 60's, 70's, and 80's
Jodie Foster - appeared nude in three movies in the 80's and 90's (her apparent nude scenes in early and recent films were body doubles)
Susan Sarandon - appeared nude in the 70's, 80's and 90's
Brooke Shields - has appeared nude in only two movies, one in 1978 and one in 1981
Mary Steenburgen - has appeared nude in only two movies, one in 1980 and one in 2001

How about Jack Nicholson since they all are actors nowadays? Actresses no longer exist.

Since it appears that we're still missing a French actress, what about Genevieve Bujold?

As for Bo Derek, is it possible that they just don't know about all of her work in the 00s? If this (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0221297/) doesn't scream "BoBoobies!", then I don't know what does. I will admit that I haven't seen it, and I'll also admit that I don't really plan on it, but maybe that website just missed it, since it wasn't exactly a hit.

I will admit that I haven't seen it, and I'll also admit that I don't really plan on it, but maybe that website just missed it, since it wasn't exactly a hit.The site mentions Frozen With Fear. Derek does a scene in a swimsuit but not nude.

Geneviève Bujold (who's actually Canadian) did nude scenes in the 70's and 80's.

Jane Birkin (who's actually British) is a correct answer. She did nude scenes in the 60's, 70's and 80's and then came back for one last nude scenes in 2001 for Ceci est mon corps (This is My Body). But like Kellerman and Kirkland, she wasn't one of the actresses on the original list (which has now grown from ten to thirteen).

Isabelle Huppert is correct.

So one actress left.

Working from the clues:

Kim Cattrall - Anglo-American??? - 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s

Melanie Griffith - American - 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s
Goldie Hawn - American - 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s
Barbara Hershey - American - 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s

Natassia Kinski - German - 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s

Helen Mirren - British - 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s
Charlotte Rampling - British - 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s

Catherine Deneuve - French - 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s
Isabelle Huppert - French - 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s

So presumably the remaining actress is an American. The counts of the actresses in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s doesn't add up with the clues but I'm not sure which one I have wrong, nevertheless it's clear that the remaining actress will be nude in the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s.

Hmm, Jamie Lee Curtis maybe? Kim Bassinger?

Maria Conchita Alonso, perhaps? According to IMDB, she didn't start making movies until 1979, but it does appear she was nude in the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Perhaps one of those from 1979 also had a nude scene.

Otherwise, I'll keep racking my brain for all of the various nude actresses who are now in the 50+ range. It's not exactly a terrible task.


ETA: Just realized that she was born in Cuba, so nix that.

Helen Mirren - British - 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s
I watched Calendar Girls (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0337909/) from 2003 at the weekend and Helen Mirren was showing her boobies in that, so you can add 00s to her list.

Cattrall is the "Anglo-American" - she was born in the UK but has mainly worked in the US. To confuse matters she lived a lot of her early life in Canada.

Mirren is the five decade actress. Rampling's first nude scene was in 1971 (in 'Tis Pity She's a Whore).

So the remaining actress is indeed an American who did nude scenes in the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's.

And it's not Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone, or Maria Conchita Alonso.

Here's a mostly useless hint: her middle name is Phyllis. You probably won't be able to find her based on that, but it's uncommon enough that you can use it to check to see if you have the right answer.

Jessica Lange fits that clue, but I don't associate her with frequent nudity.....

Jessica Lange fits that clue, but I don't associate her with frequent nudity.....Not frequent but well spaced. King Kong (1976); Frances (1982); Blue Sky (1994); and Titus (2000). So we have a winner.

Seriously, you knew Jessica Lange's middle name was Phyllis?

No I googled. I can't let a challenge like that (You probably won't be able to find her based on that) go by, now can I?

Fun quiz - too bad I discovered it when it was almost over.
