Most memorable nude scenes

So, Neil Mukesh is taking his clothes off.

Apparently Neil's going to show off his private parts in Madhur Bhandarkar's Jail, while Sanjay Leela Bhansali's trying to talk Hrithik Roshan out of his modesty in his next, Guzaarish.

And while Bollywood decides to disrobe, here's a quick look at ten truly memorable nude scenes:

Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct

The most iconic moment in modern day mainstream screen nudity came when Stone whipped a lucky Michael Douglas into submission, tying him to a bed and going wild. Awesome.

Demi Moore in Striptease

The film wasn't a patch on Carl Hiaasen's hilarious book of the same name, but Demi proved that a fine pair of breasts beat well-written words, any day of the week.

Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights

This great film ended with a mad moment as Wahlberg's porn star finally took his legendary tool out of his pants. Prosthetic it may have been, but surely impossible to forget.

Anne Hathaway in Havoc

Not by any standards a good film, this one is a sensational addition to the list simply because it features much R-rated nudity with screen stunner Hathaway.

Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler

Tomei might not be a teenager anymore, but she can give any of the current Hollywood young-bods an inferiority complex, as she proved while playing a stripper in last year's film. Wow.

Michael Pitt, Eva Green and Louis Garrel in The Dreamers

A Bernardo Bertolucci film featuring sexual deviance, Europe and many a threesome that knew no bounds. It's a beautiful film, and features a naked Bondgirl. We approve.

Geoffrey Rush in Quills

Rush played the Marquis De Sade in this compelling biopic, and in one of the film's most bizarrely striking scenes, the man stripped down starkers and showed off a rather modest johnson. Memorable just for its sheer abruptness.

Kate Winslet in The Reader

An example of nudity winning an actress an Oscar as Kate took both her kit and her smile off as she indulged in sex and cigarettes. She didn't look particularly good, but it's hard to ignore so, so much of her.

Angelina Jolie in Pushing Tin

It's an early Jolie film with most of the focus on leading man John Cusack, but the film affords a good chance to ogle at Jolie's fab frame, then far yummier than it has been in recent times.

Seema Biswas in Bandit Queen

And finally, a moment of shock. Bandit Queen's infamous sequence featuring Biswas as Phoolan Devi stripped naked and humiliatingly forced to fetch water from the village well is a moment of unforgettable shame and pure cinematic power.
