Natalie Dormer Defends Her Nude Scenes: ‘I Was Unemployed’

natalie dormer tudorsNatalie Dormer has defended the nude scenes she did in early part of her career. The actress starred as Anne Boleyn in The Tudors before she grabbed the supporting roles of Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones and Cressida in The Hunger Games.

Dormer recently starred as the lead in psychological thriller – The Forest and told Evening Standard that she doesn’t regret the nude scenes of her early career as it ‘has paid off’.

“It means the work has paid off. First things first, I can pay the bills doing the job I love — my 16-year-old self would be very content with that. But, of course, your ambitions change. I’ve had the responsibility of carrying projects on stage and TV, so it was the next thing I had my eyes on, to prove I could do it on film.”

Dormer also spoke about her role in The Tudors, a show known for its nudity.

“When I started my career, I was grateful to get the job. People would say, ‘The Tudors was so hyper-sexualised, why on earth would you make that decision?’ Well, I made the decision because I was unemployed. I didn’t know what The Tudors was going to be, I didn’t have all 10 scripts; I’d just got a job, for f***’s sake.”

The actress believes that like real life, sex has also become an important part of reel life.

“There’s plenty of male nudity in Game Of Thrones, too. Sex is part of life, ergo it’s part of art. If you’re representing real life, then you will represent sex.”


  1. I would not worry to much about it as I do believe we are born without clothes. This message brought to you by a semi-conservative republican. Go Trump!

    1. If your actually supporting trump you are everything wrong with this country. Please have your mouth surgically sewn shut so you can not infect the rest of the population with that garbage.

      1. At least he isn’t a bernie or hillary supporter…only the third worst option to support

      2. Trump was one of the worst candidates to run last year (in terms of governing ability and values). You could make an argument that Ben Carson was worse, but I’m not sure.

    2. You didn’t need to tell us that you support Trump. It was strongly implied by your incorrect use of “to” instead of “too”.

  2. Hiiiii, I’m 5th commentator, I think Kevin wants you to know that you can be comfortable being naked as a semi-conservative republican without going to hell..

  3. This is the problem with the internet. Everyone thinks their opinion matters and the readily available exchange of ideas justifies this notion. While this is good for many things, it also leads to a narcissistic view of life that everyone should conform to your ideals. And due to that narcissism, we end up with ludicrous ideas like ‘slut shaming’. If a woman, or a man for that matter, is comfortable enough with themselves to appear nude in public, who the hell do you think you are to judge them for that act??? That is their modesty, their morality, and between them and their maker. You have nothing to say about it.
    Now, the great hypocrisy of this is the far leftist idea that an attractive woman is somehow objectifying themselves, but by the same token, an obese or unattractive woman doing the same act is somehow empowered by it. And herein is the underlying hypocrisy. It is about jealousy. Not morality, not empowerment, not shame or any other personal crap. It is pure jealousy.

    1. Isn’t it hypocritical to say “This is the problem with the internet. Everyone thinks their opinion matters..” and then start stating your opinion on the topic? Or is that irony?

      1. Having an opinion is not the same as the assumption of it mattering. Dropping your own “2 cents” in a thread is not the same as that person assuming it will change the world, it’s just thinking out loud.

  4. I don’t understand what’s wrong with it. It just makes content. People getting upset over seeing boobs on TV is just sad. Grow up.

  5. If you don’t like seeing it why do you insist on watching it? There is a whole world of content out there and yet people somehow seem to always watch the things they end up not liking. Need to re-evaluated their decision making abilities XD

  6. When you gotta pay the bills, even your body is fair game. I’m surprised she didn’t walk the streets of Hollyweird.
