The true art of the world of cinema lies in the expression of every scene in vivid and artistic detail, which requires the actors and actresses to delve into the narrative and perform just as the script requires them to. Thus, when a story is told, it also has the chance to hold details that might require the star to strip down and emulate an environment in a certain way.
