A billboard recently went up at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue that reportedly features shots of 43,412 female nude scenes produced by Hollywood for film and television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the billboard, which went up July 30, is the work of MrSkin.com and its CEO, Jim McBride, in honor of the website’s 18th birthday. The site tracks mainstream screen nudity.
The billboard features a message that reads: ‘Dear Hollywood, You’ve made 43,412 nude scenes for film & TV (all featured on this billboard) — Thanks for the mammaries! Love, Mr. Skin, est. 1999.” The text is emblazoned over a background made up of tiny screen shots that can’t be discerned from street level, with a few of the shots magnified.
THR quotes McBride saying: “We’re in the golden age of TV content: We’re tracking 113 shows across 36 networks that feature nudity.”
The report notes: “MrSkin.com’s earliest available scene is Hedy Lamarr in 1933’s Ecstasy; the most recent, Alison Brie from Netflix’s GLOW. Among movie stars, Susan Sarandon notches the most nude appearances at 15, while Angelina Jolie is a close second with 14.”
