Actress Anna Friel has angrily hit back at reports she is stripping off for steamy scenes in upcoming soccer movie GOAL!, as the claims are completely false.

The British beauty was amazed when a light-hearted comment from a producer was twisted out of proportion - and she is adamant anyone expecting to see her naked in the movie will be disappointed.

She says, "I'd like to set the record straight about this as I've been really embarrassed by it and DAVID (THEWLIS, her partner) has been really angry.

"One of the producers made a joke about nude scenes and me turning into a nymphette in the sequel.

"A journalist overheard it and wrote a story saying: 'Anna's getting her kit off for raunchy sex scenes.' Er, no.

"It's a football movie and I've just had a baby, so that's totally untrue."
