Shia LaBeouf, Sigur Ros’s ‘Fjögur Píanó’
In a move that would undoubtedly make James Franco jealous, Shia LaBeouf has bared his butterfly-kissing, interpretive-dancing, nude-as-the-day-he-was-born side in the Icelandic band Sigur Ros’s latest music video of their song “Fjögur Píanó.” Acrobatics, glittery lollipops, and lots of crying are involved—you have been warned.
Ken Jeong, ‘The Hangover Part II’
When Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis, and Bradley Cooper gather around a mysterious object in this scene from The Hangover Part II, the last thing we expect is for it to be Mr. Chow’s (played by Ken Jeong) man bit—and a very, very tiny bit at that.
Daniel Radcliffe, ‘Equus’
Watching Harry Potter movies is never quite the same after witnessing Daniel Radcliffe’s starring role in the play Equus, which has him walk onstage completely nude in a frightening love scene with a horse. For some, though, that was a good thing: Radcliffe earned high marks for his performance, with a review in The Guardian proclaiming, “Forget all the prurient press speculation about Harry Potter’s private parts. The revelation in this revival is that Daniel Radcliffe really can act.”
Michael Fassbender, ‘Shame’
After being featured prominently in one of the first scenes of Shame, Michael Fassbender’s penis became arguably the biggest breakout star of 2011. As a sex-addicted businessman named Brandon, Fassbender let it all hang out as he sullenly climbs out of bed, takes a piss in the bathroom, and gets ready to go about his miserable day. He also bares it all again in a masturbation scene, a sex-with-the-boss scene, and an orgy at the film’s finale.
Jason Segel, ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’
Jason Segel’s manhood stole the scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, when Segel, just out of the shower, stands stunned and exposed for an excruciatingly long time while being dumped by his girlfriend. It’s an opening, writes Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times, that, “in the canon of male-humiliation comedy, seems destined to rival that notorious encounter with an ill-fated apple pie.”
Daniel Day-Lewis, ‘Stars and Bars’
Yes, Daniel Day-Lewis was in a comedy: in the 1988 film Stars and Bars, he plays a high-strung art dealer who ventures into the American South to buy a Renoir painting.
Richard Gere, ‘American Gigolo’
Ten years before Pretty Woman, American Gigolo put Richard Gere on the other side of the prostitute-patron transaction. In the film, he plays a Los Angeles gigolo who falls for a politician’s wife while unknown forces frame him for murder.
Harvey Keitel, ‘The Piano’
At the peak of his masculinity, Harvey Keitel was not one to shy away from letting it all hang out on screen. He hung loose in 1992’s Bad Lieutenant as a corrupt New York City police detective and in 1993’s The Piano as the uninhibited lover of a mute pianist.
Adam Scott, ‘Tell Me You Love Me’
The HBO series Tell Me You Love Me, about three couples who share a therapist, lasted only one season, though the show garnered quite a bit of popularity early on for its risqué sex scenes and nudity. The show’s producers wanted Adam Scott, who played Palek, to agree to full frontals in a contract. In an interview with The A.V. Club, Scott said he refused to sign off on it and instead donned a prosthetic penis that “ejaculated” hair conditioner.
Kevin Bacon, ‘Wild Things’
After the racy threesome scene between Matt Dillon, Neve Campbell, and Denise Richards in 1998’s Wild Things, viewers didn’t think anything could shock them—until Kevin Bacon flashed his package in the shower. Apparently he didn’t know how much, ahem, flesh was going to be shown, but was happy with the way things turned out. “I thought Matt Dillon was blocking me,” he said. “Then they called me up and said, ‘The way we have to cut it now, you’re full frontal.’ I said, ‘Oh well, how does it look? Let me see it!’”
Geoffrey Rush, ‘Quills’
The 2000 flick Quills is based loosely on the life of the Marquis de Sade, a French philosopher and writer famous for his libertine doctrines and erotic works. The film zooms in on the marquis (played by Geoffrey Rush) during his last years in an insane asylum. On several occasions the cameras also zoom in on Rush’s dangly bits. The actor has rarely come up short in his performances, but this is sadly the case in these startling full-frontals.
