SIR Michael Caine refuses to appear completely naked on film, as he's terrified of the sight of his naked body on the big screen.

The 72-year-old Batman BEGINS actor used to cite Humphrey Bogart no-nudity clause as the reason behind his own refusal to appear nude, but concedes it's now his aging physique which deters him from appearing with no clothes on.

Of the one thing he'll never do in movies, Caine says, "Full frontal nudity. Bogart never did it and that used to be my excuse.

"Now I won't do it because I'm scared enough when I see myself naked in the mirror."
