OSCAR-winner Angelina Jolie has slammed her fellow Hollywood actresses for hiring body doubles or refusing to do nude scenes.

The stunning actress has stripped off in a succession of films, including ORIGINAL SIN and GIA, and doesn't understand why so many A-listers refuse to show off their bodies on the silver screen.

Jolie says, "There's too much prudery in America.

"Feeling ashamed about sex or nudity is a very sad thing because it's simply repressing a very important aspect of human nature and warping our way or dealing with our bodies and sexuality.

"It's repressive. I've always felt that sex is one of the most liberating experiences we can have."
