We could list off any number of ways to pass the time, but nostalgia and topless women in film make a pretty unbeatable combination. Here are some of the best topless moments from classy hot actresses, which should bring up some nostalgia, amongst other things.
One of the most classic topless shots of any actress is Sharon Stone’s role in “Basic Instinct” back in 1992, perhaps because it included a little flash of her upskirt as well.
If you could see any classy actress topless, it would most likely be Maria Tomei, no? Well, it already exists in 2007’s “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” (opposite Ethan Hawke and P.S. Hoffman), when she was already 43 years old. We’d still take her over anyone today.
In 2001, Halle showed off her beautiful breasts very nonchalantly in “Swordfish” opposite Hugh Jackman. This would not be the last time we saw Halle’s body heavily revealed, thank goodness.
Humanitarian Olivia Wilde showed off her humanity recently in a very sexy scene in “Drinking Buddies,” but one of Olivia’s first big displays was her topless scene in 2006’s “Alpha Dog” with Emile Hirsch, playing Johnny Truelove’s girlfriend on the run.
Quite possibly one of the best lesbian scenes in any film is Naomi Watts on top of Laura Harring in David Lynch’s 2001 “Mulholland Drive.” He might make weird films, but dammit he’s a good man for making this scene.
It wasn’t exactly a nice, calm way to see a beautiful actress topless, but most any guy will take it when it comes to this gal. Angelina bared her bosoms in the serial killer thriller “Taking Lives” back in 2004 where Jolie plays an FBI agent.
Who could forget Kate Winslet’s epic topless scene in James Cameron’s 1997 “Titanic”? The only thing better in this film was Leo’s handsome face. OK, no, it was Kate Winslet’s boobs.
She’s been known to do it a few times, but one of the most adorable nip slips we ever saw in film was Penelope Cruz back in 2001 across from Tom Cruise — it’s Cruise, not Cruz! — in “Vanilla Sky.” Too bad she was only a figment of his imagination.
Anne Hathaway is another woman who is known for her very public slip of the hoo-ha, but, in addition, the actress also has multiple roles (mostly in Jake Gyllenhaal films) in which she’s shared her milky white bosoms with the audience, including “Brokeback Mountain” and “Love and Other Drugs.” But nothing tops her multiple sex scenes in “Havoc.” Her breasts are real. They’re spectacular, and they might have made that third Batman film a lot better if they were out.
This one is sort of the poster child for classy actresses going topless in film. We only saw that because it was actually the poster in our rooms as a child. Just us? Oh. Demi Moore stripped down in “Striptease” as a “kind-hearted” exotic dancer back when we were boys in 1996, which sort of made Burt Reynolds our hero. Then she hooked up with Ashton Kutcher, who is the same age as us, so he actually got to live out our dream.
Sexual fantasies abound when Nicole Kidman’s character, Alice Harford, discloses her gutter brain to her husband Bill (Tom Cruise) in the 1999 Stanley Kubrick “Eyes Wide Shut.” We promise you our eyes were wide open when she exposed herself.
Charlize Theron was topless in a couple films, including “The Devil’s Advocate” in 1997 (seen above), which actually includes a full frontal of the South African blonde babe. “2 Days in the Valley” and other small roles have landed Charlize’s body on screen in a big way. “Reindeer Games” in 2000 was another classic, as you fire up the Netflix classics.
