Mary Elizabeth Winstead
31-year old actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead Nude Debut (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.
