Although cinematic nudity is often looked at as gratuitous, some nude scenes can really define a movie. What would Basic Instinct be without Sharon Stone’s infamous leg-crossing scene? Would The Wolf of Wall Street have been as effective with a more "conservative" temperament? But of course we can also admire these elements for their aesthetic charms. Here are just a few of the most notable fully nude scenes on the silver screen.

Looks as though the familiar yell of the original jungle warrior himself, Tarzan, will once again be heard in theaters the world over, with Warner Brothers announcing a release date of July 1, 2016 for the live-action 3D adventure. Sound exciting? Hardly – in fact, here’s why Tarzan is already doomed to fail: CGI.
Yes, the darling of modern movie-making is, unfortunately, sure to zap all the juice out of this once-ripe papaya of pulp heroes. After all, is there anything truly menacing about a pixilated puma or a computer-rendered rhinoceros? No – and that was truly a major appeal of Tarzan, specifically, taking viewers into a world most would never go: the deepest, darkest climes of Africa, complete with a real person interacting with the most-dangerous of jungle beasts.
Sure, those "darkest climes" of cinema yore were simply another Hollywood back lot (and fancy editing made the "menace" seem more real than in actuality) but replacing actual animals with near 100 percent CGI versions will surely remove any of the genuine intrigue and excitement – particularly with Tarzan’s pal Cheetah. It’s one thing to suspend disbelief with a King Kong or Planet of the Apes (both of which depict animals larger-than-life, or creatures of pure fantasy). It is quite another to immediately recognize a phony chimp, complete with an actor looking in the general direction of the post-production induced co-star.
Look for Tarzan 3D to swing to the ground with a large, loud thud – even with stars such as True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Robbie, and Sam Jackson attached.
The Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot Robbie has found love with a crew member on the set of her latest film, according to a new report. The Australian actress is currently in New Zealand shooting sci-fi film Z for Zachariah, and reports suggest she has started dating a member of the production team, Henry Aitken.
Rumours about the pair's budding relationship emerged after Aitken posted a picture of them posing together on his Facebook.com page.
A source tells Stuff.co.nz, "She's got quite a few roles lined up so she's going to be really busy... but he is in the film industry too so maybe they can find a way to maintain their relationship."
The Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot Robbie has been confirmed to play Jane in a new live-action take on Tarzan. The Australian beauty edged out Emma Stone for the lead female role, and she'll now romance Alexander Skarsgard's Tarzan in the modern remake of the classic Edward Rice Burroughs tale.
The 3D live-action film will focus on Tarzan's efforts to get to grips with life in urban London. It will be directed by Harry Potter director David Yates.
Django Unchained co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz will also be a part of the Tarzan film, which Warner Bros. producers hope to have swinging into cinemas in July, 2016.
The Yates project isn't the only Tarzan movie in the works - Kellan Lutz voices the jungle orphan in another live action release, which is set to hit theatres in May (14).
Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has been named the Most Desirable Woman of 2014 in a new survey. The 26 year old English beauty nabbed the title in the AskMen.com poll, which was created to find the world's most in-demand females.
Community and Mad Men star Alison Brie comes in second, while model/actress Emily Ratajkowski earns a spot at number three, followed by last year's winner Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson.
Kate Upton, Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, Margot Robbie and Kate Moss all make the top 10.

"I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I eat carrot sticks for three days. I'm one extreme or the other. I'm not good at doing moderation. I get miserable if I don't eat. I can't just have a salad every day and half a glass of wine every second day. Can't do it." - from GQ Magainze, January 15, 2014
