According to People magazine, Hayden Panettiere has no problem with her nude scene in her upcoming film, I Love You, Beth Cooper.
“If I can’t flaunt it at 20, come on!” Panettiere said while promoting the movie, which opens July 10. “I mean I might as well show it now.”
The film is based on the book by Larry Doyle, in which a dorky high schooler (Paul Rust) falls for a popular cheerleader, played by Panettiere.
According to People, in a locker room scene, the actress drops her towel.
“It didn’t bother me much,” Panettiere said. “I think when the person who’s doing it gets all uncomfortable and shy, then it’s other people around who get more uncomfortable because they’re uncomfortable. I mean I was fine — everyone was really professional.”
The New York Daily News quotes a U.K. Sun interview with the “Heroes” star about her exhibitionistic tendencies.
“My dad calls me such an exhibitionist. He always says, ‘God, even when you were little, you were such an exhibitionist!’
“I could be 30 years old and just be like, ‘Screw it – I want to take it all off. I better take a picture of this baby before it all goes.’”
