She only turned 18 eight months ago, but Harry Potter star Emma Watson is already considering stripping off on screen.
In what many might see as further evidence of the pressure on women in the industry, the young actress admits she is prepared to go nude - if the role demands it.
The news will shock fans who have watched her grown up as Hermione Granger in the series of JK Rowling adaptations and still think of her as a child.

But when asked by a Sunday magazine if she would ever film naked, she admitted: 'Yes. For Bernardo Bertolucci. It ... depends.
'I’m not getting my kit off any time soon, but it is part of my job.
'I’m at a strange age. I’m not a woman yet, but I’m not a girl any more.
'They [film companies] say: "Oh, in a couple of years you’ll be perfect for this."
'I’ll be like, yeah, but I want to be studying English then, so it’s going to be quite tough to choose between the two.'

Meanwhile, the university-bound actress showed her youth as she donned mouse ears - and a fasionable dress of course - for her latest Hollywood premiere last night.
She may have graced the cover of Vogue, but she looked at home promoting the animated movie, The Tale of Despereaux, which is set to be a big Christmas hit.
The British star had a big smile for the camera as she posed on the red carpet in the satin dress and a pair of peep-toe black heels.

She posed with co-stars Dustin Hoffman and Matthew Broderick in Los Angeles.
In the CGI film she provides the voice for the character Princess Pea, who forms a friendship with a brave little mouse with huge ears.
The Harry Potter star signed a deal with Kate Moss's modelling agency Storm last summer and was a fixture at both London and Paris Fashion Week this year.

The young actress has admitted to having a big interest in the fashion world and has become a regular face on the fashion circuit of late.
'I've always been really interested in art and fashion', she has said.
But despite her hugely successful acting career and the interest from the fashion industry, Emma has pledged to continue her academic career following her current gap year.
After gaining straight As at A-level, she plans to study English literature in the UK or a liberal arts degree in the U.S.
