“One of the published photos, and probably the last straw that broke the camel’s back showed the couple explicitly having sex on top of the pyramid.”

The thing that amazes me is not that they were able to have sex there, but that there is no security to prevent them from climbing the Great Pyramid at night.

Jennifer Connelly is a legend of film nudity. She was ubiquitous in our annual top twenty lists from 1996-2003, including three finishes in the top three, and two top-ten appearances in the same year.

Her nude scenes:

The Hot Spot, 1990

Of Love and Shadows, 1994

Mulholland Falls, 1996 (The top nude scene of 1996)

Inventing the Abbotts, 1997 (The #2 nude scene of 1997)

Waking the Dead, 2000, with additional nudity in deleted scenes. (#9 among the top nude scenes of 2000)

Requiem for a Dream, 2000 (#3 among the top nude scenes of 2000)

The House of Sand and Fog, 2003 (#15 among the best nude scenes of 2003)

Shelter, 2014

American Pastoral, 2016

They were both born on Dec 12, 1970, and are therefore both turning 48 today.

Madchen’s best nude scene is one of the greatest in history. In 1994, at the tender age of 23, she stripped off every stitch of clothing and was photographed from every angle in Dream Lover.

The remainder of her early career was mostly just teases: a quick flash of her booty in Love Cheat & Steal (1993, age 22); side-boobs in Bombshell (1996, age 25) and Hangman (2001, age 30). Then in 2013, after more than a decade without any nudity in her performances, she did a beautiful full rear nude at age 42, in a 2013 episode of Witches of East End, and she looked mah-velous. Those four appearances are pictured here.
