Susan Sarandon has slammed reports she urged her 24-year-old daughter to strip on camera, insisting she had no idea Eva Amurri would appear naked in saucy U.S. TV series CALIFORNICATION.
Amurri disrobed for a scene opposite David Duchovny on the hit show - and never told her parents or her brothers she'd be baring all on TV.
And Sarandon is keen to clear up rumours that she was the one who pushed her daughter to do her nude scene.
The Thelma & Louise star says, "First of all, she would not listen to me. There's no way to push my daughter into doing anything. I didn't push her into it. That's a really funny idea.
"She did it herself and she didn't ask permission. She's a grown woman. I guess because everyone expected me to be really upset that she did it, they go to the other extreme... but I thought she did a brilliant job. She has an absolutely unbelievable God-given body and if she's ever going to do it (get naked) she should do it now. And she understood that.
"If she was comfortable, I was comfortable. I thought she handled herself really well, not just the physical thing. She seems very healthy and well-adjusted on the show. I'm just so happy she found something she likes to do... She was amazing and I hope she gets tons of work from it."
