As you all know, because you spend your spare time reading contract riders, Jessica Alba won’t do nude scenes. She’s above that sort of tawdriness, though unfortunately, not above doing a movie like Good Luck, Chuck, or as we in the Rowles’ household like to call it, Go Fuck Yourself, Dane Cook. Anyway, Robert Rodriguez is the kind of guy who, when he decides to make a Mexsplotation film, he wants to go all out. And by all out, I mean: Sideboob. But Alba was like, “No way. I have my principles! If I show sideboob, they’ll never let me play the live-action version of Jessica Rabbit in the eventual remake of Roger Rabbit.”
So … through the magic of computers, Jessica Alba got to have her cake and show her boobs, too. To the left here is what Jessica Alba was actually wearing during a scene in Machete. And to the right is what the viewer at home saw.
Alba stated, “‘I come from a very Catholic family so it wasn’t seen as a good thing to flaunt yourself like that. I can handle being sexy with clothes on but not with them off.” But, what would your Catholic family say about computer simulated nudity? Seriously: If the audience doesn’t know the difference, then what’s the point?
