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!"
Little truth has been spilled about Lars von Trier's upcoming film Nymphomaniac, and while many who work on the film would like to keep it that way, its producer Louise Vesth opened up about some of the new techniques the Danish director will be implementing in the sex scenes.
When actor Shia LaBeouf went around claiming that he'd be having real sex on camera, he was only partially correct. Instead, von Trier will film the sex scene twice: once with the actors and again with their doubles. In post-production, the doubles' nether regions will be superimposed onto the actors', making it appear as though they were truly getting physical.
“We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles who really did have sex and in post we will digital impose the two. So above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles," Vesth explained.
The complicated post-production work cost the film an unveiling at Cannes, but it is expected to hit theaters this December.

Ashley Tisdale would never go topless on screen.
Although the 27-year-old actress recently posed for the new issue of Maxim magazine in just an open leather jacket and underwear, she draws the line at baring all onscreen.
"I don't think I'd ever do a topless role. I'll do drama and stuff but I don't think I'll ever go topless for something. I'm very comfortable in my body. I'm definitely more of a comedian. I don't really take myself too seriously," she said.
However, the High School Musical star loved taking part in the sexy shoot for the men's magazine and hasn't ruled out similar work in the future: "Maxim was fun and I was really excited.. It was shot at the beach in Malibu, and I'm, like, a beach type of person. I feel like it was cool."
Rosario Dawson found it difficult walking around completely naked for her new movie.
The 33-year-old Trance star - who recently split from the movie's director Danny Boyle - has admitted she felt "insecure" walking around with nothing on and her co-stars including James McAvoy made the experience "more awkward" by refusing to look at her.
Speaking at the world premiere of the movie at the Odeon West End in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz:
"The hardest and scariest part about it was walking. I was trying to figure out, like, how do you walk in front of everyone when you're naked? I don't think you really plan to do that really well. It's actually interesting because everyone's trying to be really respectful and polite and not look at you, but that almost makes it a little bit more awkward because you know you're performing to a certain extent. Like, I'm standing there and I'm walking across the room and I'm like, 'Am I walking too slow? Should I move my hip a little bit more?' You really get self conscious about the stupidest things. It was really funny because I'm looking over at James and James is not looking at me at all. He's looking at my shoulder; he's looking at some spot on the wall. It's sort of just like, OK, just be in the moment, be in the character."
Rooney Mara isn't fazed by nude scenes. While the Side Effects actress isn't a fan of gratuitous nudity in movies, she isn't adverse to stripping off onscreen because she doesn't think it's a big deal.
"I certainly don't want to be involved in anything that is gratuitous, but I don't think the human body is something to be ashamed of. Every other person on the planet has the same parts as I do. So seeing them shouldn't be a huge shock to most people," she told Interview.
While she isn't worried about baring all oncreen, Rooney sometimes stresses about what would happen her latest work if she died during filming: "Sometimes I think about that--like, 'Okay, if I died right now, would they have to reshoot the whole film? Or would they be able to edit around it.' Then I think through the scenes that are left to shoot, and weigh if they would be able to finish it or not."
Rooney also revealed she tries to eat healthily although junk food can be her downfall. "I try to eat food that hasn't been washed in ammonia and then packaged in the shape of breaded dinosaurs filled with cheese - even though those are very tasty. I like to eat food that can actually make it through the 20-plus feet of my small intestine," the 27 year-old said.
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.

Daniel Craig says it's getting "harder and harder" to do nude scenes in James Bond movies.
The 44-year-old actor - who is returning for his third film as the iconic British spy in Skyfall - admits he has "fun" taking his clothes off while portraying the secret agent and hopes it adds some "sexiness" to the 007 film franchise: "I don't actually read those bits. I don't care how many times I have to do it. It's going to be harder and harder the older I get. It's just fun. There's enough sexiness in the movie with the girls - and hopefully me as well - but it's a little bit of a gag now."
Daniel stars opposite Javier Bardem in Skyfall and while he admits there was no free time to spend with the 43-year-old star - who portrays latest Bond villain Raoul Silva - during filming, he is keen to watch a game of rugby with the No Country For Old Men actor when they get a chance.
