Jamie Lee Curtis says she was "embarrassed" by her topless scene in 1983's "Trading Places."
"Did I know what I was doing? Yeah. Did I like it? No," the actress told People in a new interview.
Curtis went on to say that doing a similar scene would be "last thing in the world I would do now."
Jamie Lee Curtis said her topless scene in the 1983 film "Trading Places" made her feel "embarrassed."
The "Halloween Kills" star played sex worker Ophelia in the comedy, which stars Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy, and focuses on a wealthy commodities broker (Aykroyd) who inadvertently switches lives with a blue-collar worker (Murphy).
"I was 21 years old and the part required Ophelia to take off her dress," Curtis told People in a new interview. "Did I like doing it? No. Did I feel embarrassed that I was doing it? Yes."
"Did I look OK? Yeah. Did I know what I was doing? Yeah. Did I like it? No. Was I doing it because it was the job? Yes," the actress continued.
Curtis went on to say that doing a nude scene at her current age would be "the last thing in the world I would do now."
"I also am married for 37 years, I wasn't married then. I'm a mother of children. Absolutely not," the "Freaky Friday" actress said in the People TV interview.
This isn't the first time Curtis has reflected on her nude scenes in past films. In June, the actress told People's "People in the '90s" podcast that her striptease in 1994 spy comedy "True Lies" (directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger) wasn't rehearsed.
"The thing that nobody knows: There was no rehearsal, there is no choreographer. Jim [James Cameron] said to me, 'What do you want to dance to?'" Curtis said.
Curtis said she asked for the John Hiatt song "Alone in the Dark" to be played and for the next three days of production she said she danced like she does at home when "nobody [is] around."
