Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Brief Butt) in Fargo [S3E1]
I think at different phases of your life your opinions on things change dramatically. I mean, I can’t say that 10 years down the road I won’t feel a lot more comfortable with nudity. I mean, I don’t know, but at this point in my life, I feel it would be a little weird for me being a young woman in Hollywood and doing nudity, so I’m going to hold out for now. I think that I’ll stick to it, but I’m not going to make any guarantees or promises.
MEW finally made her nude debut after years of dodging, negotiating and maneuvering her way out of it. I’m happy somewhat, slightly punctured by the quality of the scene and my own heightened expectations tempered by the usual paranoia no thanks to advent of CGI trickery (MEW wore a skin/flesh thong erased out.)
I truly hate nude debut of booty kind. The kind where you can’t see the face. Making it worse, too much leeway in allowing the particular actress to refuse a quick look at the face and butt in same sequence as it were with MEW particularly when she exited the bathroom. Factoring in the entrenched and distracting notion of BD involvement, this type of butt shot takes away the enjoyment, reducing the impact of the nudity itself and robbing the pervs of a holy-fuck! moment.
God is in the detail. None more so than actresses with their nudity rider in covering all the bases and in process, either purposely or inadvertently, ends up confusing and frustrating the pervs into believing they’re being taken for a ride by a BD no thanks to the way the scene is filmed.
Fortunately, surprisingly and thankfully, MEW was in a kind, responsive mood to point out it was her perfect butt on display, allaying the fear of pervs of another BD nonsense.
Keep in mind, with NDA (non-disclosure agreement) strictly enforced nowadays (including on extras and BD’s), actresses pretty much can get away by claiming the ass belongs to them (or they performed the nude scene only to attribute it to a BD.)
It’s actually hard to find a body double that matches the bod stats of that particular actress for a close-up shot. Even harder in case of MEW.
Just like yours truly, MEW has a prominent clavicle. Hard to miss ’em and easier to spot even from behind.
Less distinguished: MEW‘s butt dimple.
I’ve also noticed MEW has curvature-like incline on her left upper back, located just between rhomboideus and lats.
Noah is a booty lover. He should be aware there’s no kick in gawking at a bare ass without a gorgeous face looking back at you, all sexy vulnerable as he achieved beautifully with muse Rachel Keller in Fargo [S2] and Legion [S1]. Noah is someone who needs to be completely in control of the production which allows for him to fully realize his script and implement the ideas he has for the project including the opportunity to indulge in his sexual fantasies within the basic cable boundaries.
He succeeded in convincing MEW to flaunt her incredible tush but apparently failed to get MEW to show both her face and butt in continuous framed shot (the scene where she exited the bathroom) with the former nudity dodger resolutely firm in her decision. After all, she already agreed to make her on-screen nude debut – a difficult choice itself for someone from a conservative background.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed Noah eventually wore her down and we are in for another special MEW booty fiesta in future episodes.
