British actress Anna Friel asked male crewmembers to strip off while she filmed a nude scene for new movie The Look Of Love.

The Pushing Daisies star plays Jean Raymond, the wife of British porn baron Paul Bradley, opposite funnyman Steve Coogan, and she strips off for a number of saucy scenes.

Friel reveals the female stars of the film had to shed their clothes in front of a mostly male crew, so she urged the men to join in by also getting naked.

She tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "It was a mostly male crew and the women were naked. The men are very, very much dressed! I proposed that it would be very funny if all the men got naked but it didn't happen... The scene I did was a true life thing so I had to just be as nonchalant as Jean was - it was a very closed set."
