2011 has been a great year for toplessness and nudity in films and on TV. In fact, there is barely a new series these days that doesn't have some famous actress baring her boobs for the world to drool copiously over, a trend that I hope, as I'm sure you do, continues in 2012 and beyond.
We have put together our own top 20 of the very best nude and topless scenes from this year's TV and movie releases. There are newcomers, unknowns and some long term favourites - but who will be top of the topless? Well, I'm not going to tell you now, read it yourself, I'm not doing all that work for nothing. Sheesh.
Imagine if Ana Alexander was shy. No, I can't either. But does she have one of the best bodies on TV? I think she might - as proven here. You certainly get plenty of chances to see it!
Now THAT is what you call a debut. Not only does Burnetta steam us all up a storm in this shower scene, but I am also left wishing for the first time in my life that I was a dog.
She's been around looking hot for quite some time has Maria Bello. And it's good to see, even now in her mid-forties, that she is still happy to whip them out for us all. Super.
Bianca certainly falls into the category of girl that I would watch any old crappy film for just to see her topless. Awesome lapdance, too. The film's actually really good, too. Bonus!
I'm sure the behind the scenes meetings for Sleeping Beauty were a lot more detailed than, "Let's just have Emily Browning walking around naked looking confused a lot." But that sells any film for me on its own.
Boardwalk Empire has, to date, persuaded many actresses out of their clothes, including pretty 40-something Julianne Nicholson. All too brief, for my liking, but still trouser threatening.
Anne Hathaway's still trying hard to convince us that she's all grown up by dropping her clothes in almost every film she's in, isn't she? Mind you, we can tell that ourselves thanks to clips like this.
It's pretty hard for any nudity to stand out in a show like Californication as it drips off almost every other scene. But Miss Timlin lets her startlingly awesome boobs help her stand out. Good decision.
That Lars Von Trier is a clever one. He always makes sure his rambling, depressing and usually nonsensical films have a liberal sprinkling of nudity to pull in what I call The Fap Crowd. Dunst's dumplings do the job nicely this time!
The last time Anne Heche went topless was way back in the 1990s. She was boffing Ellen back then as well. Never forget. Good to see her still in fine working order even in her mid-forties.
40 year old Rebecca Creskoff is one of those actresses that has popped up in guest roles in almost every TV series going. But in how many of them do you get to see her grinding away most agreeably in the back of a car? Not many, I wager!
I always measure the quality of an episode of True Blood but just how naked Anna Paquin gets in it. This episode? Pretty damned awesome! 4 seasons of her nudity to date and I'm still not bored.
If I had been given any clue that there were nude and sex scenes aplenty littering Strike Back then I would actually have made the effort to watch it. Still, Orla's won me round and I'm sure they will be glad of the one extra viewer!
The first time I saw Melissa George was back in the 90s in an Australian soap opera called Home & Away. They wouldn't have let her do this in that. And to think how sad I was when she left as well.
Californication strikes again to bring us some Callie Thorne toplessness. I have to ask - should 42 year old women look anywhere near as good as this? Probably not. But let's not quibble about it.
I love it when an actress you have not seen for years suddenly reappears on the scene and discards her clothes as soon as she can. The last thing I remember of Charlotte Ross was her showing her ass on NYPD Blue about 20 years ago. She, and it, have aged very well indeed!
Ahh, Kathleen Robertson. I guess she must be regarded as the longest lasting ex-Beverly Hills 90210 star (the original not the crappy remake) by now, and scenes like this will ensure that she stretches her career even longer. Now those casting directors know she will do this, her inbox will always be full!
There is a distinct possibility that you could get a headache with the irritating arty shaky camera nonsense going on here, but don't let that distract you from a good ogle at Stana's sandbags. It's a relatively fleeting glimpse, admittedly, but it opens up the possibility of more shots of Katic's kumquats in the future. That's enough boob euphemisms now, I think.
Morena has reminded me in the last two years or so just how much I like short haired girls. I don't remember anything that happened in V aside from the bits she was in. The same could be said of Homeland, but here you have the extra distraction of glimpsing her boobs. She got married recently so apparently I can't have her but I can wait.
The winner! She made us wait for quite some time before she unleashed the twins but she does it in the way that I like - with a minimum of fuss and like she's been doing it all her career. I honestly can't remember the titles of much of Lake Bell has done so far in her career, but whenever she popped up on something I could always be heard to remark, "I remember this chick. Surely she has been topless by now?" And now she has been. Don't stop there, though, Lake - with another performance like this next year, you could easily retain your title at the end of 2012!
