The Natalie Portman “Nude” Scene is Scary

Okay, here's the thing. First we wrote that there was a Natalie Portman nude scene in Goya's Ghost. Then, Natalie's publicist said that Natalie Portman was not naked, and it was in fact a body double. Well, from what I can tell, that's true, and not true. The so-called "Natalie Portman nude scenes" are out, and from the looks of it, there is some Natalie Portman nudity, but she keeps herself covered in the appropriate places.

The other thing I have to say about these scenes, and it was said before in the initial post, but bares repeating, is that this is a very scary scene. Not horror movie scary, or gross, but definitely tough to watch. In the scene, Natalie's character is being tortured by Spanish Inquisitors, and it's almost impossible to watch.

Seriously, if you don't have the stomach to hear Natalie Portman's heart-wrenching screams, you might not want to watch. Also, seeing Natalie Portman being molested by a creepy priest, played by Javier Bardem, isn't sexy either.

You've been warned.
