Hollywood beauty Natalie Portman refuses to do nude scenes - despite starring as a stripper in her new movie CLOSER.

The 23-year-old actress is fiercely protective of the way she is presented in film and is petrified stills of her body would appear on the internet if she agreed to perform naked.

Portman says, "I never want to do anything that's going to make me uncomfortable in my regular life.

"I never really want to walk down the street wondering who's seen my t*ts."

Portman adds, "It's difficult when you consider that anyone in the world who wants to can see my body."
