The end of the year can mean only one thing: It’s time for Mr. Skin’s top 10 picks for best nude scenes in mainstream TV and film.
The annual Mr. Skin list “pays homage to the best nude scenes from mainstream TV & film throughout the year based on factors like star power and lighting.”
The top honor for 2017 goes to Christina Ricci in the Amazon Zelda Fitzgerald biography series Z: The Beginning of Everything. Ricci nabbed the title for baring “her soul and then some for her sixth nude role to date.”
Although cancelled after one season, you can still watch all 10 episodes of Ricci’s revealing performance with an Amazon Prime subscription.
All top 10 scenes can be viewed in their entirety on the Mr. Skin (aka Jim McBride) website for free.
