Selena Gomez wants to shed her innocent image.
The Spring Breakers actress, who recently split from her on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber for good, is reportedly open to the idea of appearing topless in a movie because she wants to show off her edgier side.
"Now that Selena is growing up to be a more serious actress and separating herself from her Disney past, she has no problem going topless if the role calls for it. Without a doubt, Selena would go topless in a film if the role was right," a source close to the 20 year-old actress said.
The multi-talented beauty has recently been focusing on her music career but said she plans to put it on hold to concentrate on movies in the future: "I'm just kind of halting music for a bit. [I've] been really focused on more acting. For me it's been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different. To be honest, maybe some of you guys might not be comfortable with it ... I'm still the same person. Things that challenge me really excite me. I'm doing another movie called The Getaway with Ethan Hawke. It's really, really exciting. So we're doing that and then hopefully another movie, but that hasn't really been confirmed yet. Then I'll start working on my fourth album, which will be the best album I'll ever do!"
Practically akin to Channing Tatum quitting acting for a year, Megan Fox has recently revealed that she won't strip down for a film role in the future - all because of her son.
The 26 year-old - known for her characters' sexy clothing and/or barely there styles - gave birth to her son Noah in late September. She opened up about how she takes great consideration into which roles she chooses now that she is a mother:
"It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby. I'm going to be more cautious about choosing films because I'm already thinking about when he's in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he's going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before."
Megan will next appear in Judd Apatow's This is 40 - set for a December 21 release - which will most likely be the last role where we see the actress in lingerie!

Salma Hayek cried before shooting nude scenes with Antonio Banderas. Although most leading ladies would have jumped at the chance to dive into bed with the Hollywood hunk for 1992 movie Desperado, Salma was worried about what her parents would think when they saw her on screen.
"It was my first chance at an American film and I knew I had to take it. In Desperado, I had great difficulty doing the love scene with Antonio Banderas. I actually cried. I didn't want to be naked in front of a camera and kept on thinking, 'What will my mother and father think about this?'"
The movie was a cult hit and helped launch Salma's career, but as her English still wasn't great at the time, she initially thought the film had flopped and critics were blaming her for it. "When the movie came out the critics were saying, 'Salma Hayek is a bombshell.' I was confused because I thought they were saying that the movie had 'bombed,' as in failed, and it was all my fault," she added.
Vanessa Hudgens never wants to film a sex scene again.
The actress took part in an onscreen threesome with Ashley Benson and James Franco in Spring Breakers and admitted it was so stressful, she never wants to do it again: "It was very nerve-racking for me. I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again."
However, Vanessa has previously admitted she jumped at the chance to take on the role of college student Candy, who is forced into working for a drug dealer after he bails her and four friends out of jail for robbing a restaurant, in order to move away from her squeaky clean image after High School Musical. "I'm really proud of the movie. I feel like it's a breed of its own, it's a movie unlike any other and it's very fresh and fun and exciting. I feel like it's a great take on our youth culture right now. For a while I was kind of struggling and fighting for these roles that I just desperately wanted. It was hard and it was a struggle, but then again life is always a struggle. Having a career will always be a struggle. You'll always have to fight for what you want. Definitely crossing over and being able to tackle these grittier parts was a challenge, but I feel like I've done it! It's a whole new chapter!" she said.
"I'm quite rigorous about what gets exposed. No bottom half! I don't mind exposing my t*** because they're so small -- people really aren't that interested."
- Keira Knightley talks about what she is and isn't willing to expose on camera.

Helen Hunt was "totally, completely naked" when she shot scenes for The Sessions. The 49-year-old actress portrays a sex surrogate in the new movie and admits she felt "vulnerable" when it came to shooting the intimate scenes.
"This poet had polio at age six. At 37, he's told he won't live much longer. With an iron lung, can only turn his head at a 90-degree angle, he wants to experience sexual life for the first time. That's when a professional sex surrogate is called in. I play the sex surrogate. The material created a vulnerability. I personally felt extremely vulnerable. No body make-up, because that gets sticky and creepy. So I did it naked. All naked. Butt naked. Totally completely naked. Naked beyond just naked. My jaw dropped at the prospect. When I was about to take my clothes off, my palms started to sweat," she told The New York Post.
Helen met with the woman she plays in the film and says the struck up an instant connection and she is thrilled the sex surrogate loved the finished movie. "It's rare to read such a beautiful story. True story. This real life therapist, living in California, is Cheryl Cohen Greene. Typical soccer mom with a house, mortgage, husband. We met. I stole her spirit. Her accent. She's not shy or filled with shame. She's instantly open. A real deal. I could ask or tell her anything. The day we met she quickly jumped into the shower because she had a therapy session due with a 70-year-old man. She loved the finished film because she got her message through and said the things she wanted to say," she added.
Olivia Munn thinks that her topless scene in Magic Mike made sense for the storyline.
The Newsroom actress, who also appears in the Steven Soderbergh stripper film, said that she felt fine about baring her chest for the film and that it was not gratuitous.
"I forgot that I did that until I saw it at the premiere. The way it was shot didn't feel gratuitous - I think that's what every actress says, right? There are very few directors I would ever do it for. Also, my character was getting out of the shower and to keep it as realistic as possible I didn't wear a shirt in the shower."
Olivia also revealed that she requested a clear set for shooting the sequence on the day she had to strip down: "The day of the shoot, I locked it down. I only wanted the people who absolutely had to be there. I even cleared out video village, which you'd normally forget about."
Lindsay Lohan is worried about shooting nude scenes in The Canyons.
It was announced earlier this week the troubled actress is to appear opposite a male porn star in the film - about five twentysomethings' quest for power, love, sex and success in modern Hollywood - but she is cautious about appearing naked.
"Lindsay and her team are concerned about the nudity that is involved. Lindsay would be required to do full frontal nudity, and the sex scenes are very, very graphic," a source said.
The 25-year-old star has already posed naked for Playboy magazine, but her team says when it comes to being nude on film, it is a different matter: "Yes, Lindsay has posed nude for Playboy, but she needs to make sure she is comfortable with it, and this is something she can handle as an artist. It's expected that Lindsay will sign the contract in the next two weeks, as filming begins at the beginning of July."
When Piranha 3D finally hits theaters, rabid fish won’t be the only things capturing our attention.
During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Jerry O’Connell – who plays a “soft core pornography mogul” in the film – made a big reveal. “I show frontal,” the married father of two teased.
Should this spoiler lure you into watching the film, O’Connell would like you to know something beforehand. “There may be some issues with the piranha…and my member…maybe,” he warned. Why? Because a “very cold” Colorado River was rushing into the body of water (Lake Havasu) they were filming in.
“So when you see me, it’s very cold water,” he insisted.
If you’d like to gauge that water temp for yourself, the film opens this weekend.
