Emma Stone Won’t Pose Nude Because Her Dad Would Kill Her

By  | 

I have one reality show addiction that I’m not terribly proud to admit. I watch MTV’s The Challenge. I’m not sure what it is about these aging Real World and Road Rules alums that interests me, but they’re my guilt TV of choice. However, every time I watch one of their drunken parties with lots of nudity, plenty of kissing and more than a couple embarrassing hook-ups, I have to wonder, “How do their parents deal with this?”

I have to assume that every cast-member to grace a reality show has forbid their parents from ever having cable. I’m not sure how else you could act like such an idiot in front of a national audience. Up until this point though, I had never considered what legitimate actresses must go through to explain their more provocative scenes to their parents. After all, there’s a huge difference between hot tub make-out sessions and a quick shot of nipple in a Coen Brothers’ film.

Apparently for Emma Stone, the extremely talented and likable actress from The Help and Easy A, there’s no room for nudity at all! Why would a young actress rule out so many possible job opportunities? Because she loves her dad, of course. The starlet recently said, “My dad would kill me if I posed naked. He wouldn’t speak to me again and I really love my dad, so that’s always something that makes me a little nervous.” Can we get a collective “Awww” here? [tagbox tag=”nudity”]

In the interview, Stone goes on to talk about how supportive and marvelous her parents have been throughout her career. While it may seem funny that they would encourage her acting but denounce any nude scene that comes from it, I think it makes a decent amount of sense. It’s probable that most parents don’t want their child to show the world their goodies. Not everyone can be Kris Jenner, right? I would guess that most young adults just don’t have enough respect for their parents to take that view into consideration. Stone seems to be very close with her parents and is therefore more concerned with their opinions, whether a quick shower scene will help her career or not.

It’s refreshing to see a young woman honor and respect her parents. It’s not even the nudity part that makes this story interesting. To be honest, I don’t think women need to feel ashamed of their bodies. I don’t have a huge problem with nudity in the appropriate setting. But I do enjoy hearing about a family that communicates and respects each other’s values. I have a feeling that even if she weren’t a movie star, Emma Stone would never be caught dead groping random strangers on reality TV.
