I Won`t Do Nude Scenes Again: Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has vowed that she will never strip again for screen after filming a risqué scene for her new short movie "Hotel Chevalier".

Portman's nude shots will soon be available on the Internet even before the film is officially released. And she is upset that she agreed to do something that was awkward in the prelude to "The Darjeeling Limited" directed by Wes Anderson, reports.

Portman has insisted that she was convinced that nude scenes were required for the movie.

Portman, who requested director Mike Nichols to cut the nudity from "Closer" and used a body double for "Goya's Ghosts', said that she felt it was right to do bare scenes in the latest film.

She said, "I don't know why, exactly. Sometimes you make rules for yourself and sometimes those rules are made to be broken. You have to test things out and see what works for you, and this felt right.

"I'm really sorry I didn't listen to my intuition. From now on, I'm going to trust my gut more. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is to say no."

The Academy-award nominated star also said that she urged director Wes Anderson to give her a chance to work with him.

"I begged Wes to work with me and show me a script. I really loved it. He has the finest taste possible," she said.
