Shia LaBeouf Goes Full Frontal in Video, Other Actors Who Also Bared it All

Yahoo Contributor Network

Shia LaBeouf shocked his fans by appearing completely nude in a music video for the Icelandic band Sigur Ros'. The video is an avant-garde short art film, accompanying the band's music with LaBeouf co-starring as one-half of an abusive couple. The video explores the subject of addiction and how it can cause a life to spin out of control in a cycle that is hard to break.

What makes the nudity so shocking is many people watched LaBeouf grow up, remembering him as the kid from the Disney produced TV show "Even Stevens." However, he is not the only popular movie star to go full frontal and isn't even the only former child star.

Daniel Radcliffe

While it was not in a movie, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe shocked his legions of fans when word came out that he appeared completely nude in the West End play, "Equus." The 1973 play tells the story of a young man with a deep religious fascination of horses and the psychiatrist who is trying to help him.

Radcliffe starred as the young man and stripped down for a scene where the 17-year old was required to appear nude in with horses. While the play is well respected, with Peter Firth and Richard Burton starring in the original version, the photos of Radcliffe in the play were quite controversial at the time.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender has made quite a name for himself with high profile roles in movies like "X-Men: First Class" and "Prometheus." However, he broke into Hollywood thanks to his movies with director Steve McQueen. He starred in the British director's debut film, "Hunger," as Irish prisoner Bobby Sands, who died during a hunger strike.

While that took a toll on Fassbender, who lost a lot of weight to play the part, McQueen's next project brought even more challenges. In "Shame," a movie about sex addiction, Fassbender appears completely nude. The entire opening scenes show him walking around his apartment completely naked in a long static shot. It was a very daring performance for the up-and-coming star.

Jason Mewes

On the other side of the coin is the Kevin Smith comedy, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno." Smith signed porn star Katie Morgan, who appeared nude for most of the movie, and then convinced his long time actor friend Jason Mewes to go full frontal as well. The movie is about making porn, and despite Mewes showing the world everything he has, it still managed an R-rating.
