You may have to wait a bit longer, since filming has been delayed, but according to Nudography, we will get to see Zooey Deschanel nude in the Janis Joplin biopic, The Gospel According to Janis. Deschanel discussed recreating a series of nude photos of Janis Joplin, in which she only wears beads, saying that it would be the first, and probably only time she would get naked on screen.
There’s a famous series of photos of Janis wearing nothing but beads and we’re recreating that for the movie. I’ve never taken off my clothes for a role before and I doubt I’ll do it again, but to really become who Janis was I have to get into the mindset that says there’s nothing to be ashamed about.
Hopefully, the film can get it’s financing and rights cleared, because if something stupid like money gets in the way of this Zooey Deschanel nude scene, I am not going to be happy. Come on people, let’s focus on the important things in life.
Here is one of the aforementioned pictures of Janis Joplin nude, which will be reenacted by Zooey Deschanel.
