Did Jennifer Lawrence use a body double as she stripped naked in No Hard Feelings? Everything the actress has said about THAT nude scene
Jennifer Lawrence’s raunchy summer comedy and box office hit No Hard Feelings is now on Netflix, and the actress has opened up about her nude scene in the film.
The Hollywood starlet, 33, raised eyebrows when she appeared naked on the beach as her character Maddie Barker.
Fans wondered if Jennifer enlisted the help of a body double to portray the racy scene.
But the actress, who also produced the film, spoke about why she decided to strip off herself rather than using a body double.
She told Variety filming the naked scenes didn’t faze her and admitted she never gave it a ‘second thought’ – despite others checking if she wanted to do it.

Comedy The film sees Percy Becker’s (Andrew Barth Feldman) enlist the help of Maddie Barker (Jennifer) as she is hired to date their awkward 19-year-old son
‘Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, “Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?”‘, she said in June.
‘I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.’
Her co-star Andrew, 21, added: ‘We became so close instantly that nothing ever felt weird or unsafe. It was entirely professional.’
In the movie, Jennifer stars as Maddie Barker, an Uber driver and bartender who answers a Craigslist ad to help the Becker’s, who are wealthy parents of Percy (Andrew Barth Feldman), an awkward teenager with no experience with girls and being social.
The scene shows Jennifer’s character Maddie going skinny dipping with Percy, before their clothes are stolen.
A naked Maddie then runs across sand to aggressively reclaim them from a group of pranksters.
They promise her their Buick Regal in exchange for dating him and the pair then embark on an awkward romance.
The film was a modest hit this summer bringing in $87m at the box office against its $45m budget.

The film earned mixed reviews from critics and the audience due to its crude humour and controversial plot which sees a woman in her 30s openly embrace a relationship with a teenager.
Brian Viner of The Daily Mail gave the film two stars upon release – saying Jennifer couldn’t give the ‘charmless’ film the kiss of life.
He wrote: ‘It’s a romantic comedy so feebly constructed, so lazily written, so devoid of wit and charm, that the ghost of Billy Wilder must be choking on his celestial cigar. Yet it is not without promise.’
‘It stars Jennifer Lawrence, always an engaging presence on screen, although not, as it turns out, quite talented enough to turn water into wine.’
The comedy, rated a 15 in the UK also stars Zahn McClarnon, Matthew Noszka, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach, among others.
