Arkin Uncomfortable With Lively Naked Scene
Veteran actor ALAN ARKIN's latest movie features his most difficult scene - with a naked BLAKE LIVELY.
The Gossip Girl star had to strip for a scene in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, in which she lies naked on top of the Little Miss Sunshine actor - and the 75 year old admits he was mortified throughout the shoot.
He explains, "I spent the whole day apologising to her. That was a tough day. You're thinking about being alone in a room with Blake Lively with no clothes on; I was there with 50 people and it was freezing and I had lines I had to say.
"In making 45 movies, it's only been an issue three times for me. It's not the kind of parts I get. It's always been uncomfortable for me and not something I really look forward to."
But the actress insists she preferred to get naked for Arkin over younger hunks: "I think being with a young dude would've been more awkward. I'd be thinking, 'Does he think I look cute?' I don't want that.
"I didn't have to worry about that with Alan because he was so uncomfortable and I was so uncomfortable, so I didn't have to worry about anyone being creepy. It was very easy."
