There are numerous accounts from the people who have worked with film stars, and even other stars, about the things these actors do to excel in the roles they have been given in their film projects, and Keanu Reeves is famous for his combat and tactical training feats in his iconic John Wick franchise as well as the phenomenal The Matrix franchise.

But when it comes to going over the top and beyond the realm of normalcy, then few can achieve that feat. One of these is the ability to strip naked for a film, which is easier said than done. But one of Reeves’ co-stars apparently has no problem with it, even so far as going absolutely bare in front of the crew.

Keanu ReevesThe Matrix Resurrections co-star, Christina Ricci is also famous for playing the role of Wednesday Addams in 1991’s The Addams Family. Since she portrayed the role of the daughter of the macabre family so well, she’s mostly famous for depicting such eerie and chilling roles in her career. But apart from her usual roles, she has also been part of a wide variety of genres, some of which have been erotic. And during one of these films, she was so used to being in her birthday suit that she stayed that way all the time.

In a past interview, where she was also accompanied by Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney, Ricci talked about playing the roles of crazy characters in their projects, when the conversation also turned to being naked on screen in front of the camera. Here, the Yellowjackets star revealed that during the shoot of one of her films, she had to remain naked virtually the whole time, which was visibly making the crew uncomfortable. Therefore, to help them and to get over this herself, she decided to stay in her birthday suit in front of them the entire time. She said:

“Once I had to do a movie where I was naked pretty much the entire time, The thing that made me more uncomfortable was other people being uncomfortable with me being naked. So what I did, and you probably wouldn’t be allowed to do this now, I just stayed naked. I was like ‘Don’t make me feel weird, like I’m the person who has to be ashamed’. I wanted everybody around me to stop reacting to it, because then I would forget that I was naked, and it worked. But, it’s one of the only times I’ve ever actually really felt comfortable being naked on camera.”

While it may be inconceivable to do this today for many reasons, this was one thing that the actress got used to during her time filming.

Why Did The Matrix Ressurections Flop?

There were a lot of reasons why the long-awaited sequel to the original trilogy bombed at the box office. One of the biggest reasons why The Matrix Resurrections failed to appease the fans was because it was a film that had no direction to go towards, which meant no progression towards any development from the original story. Apart from that, there were reasons like the time gap between these films, growing competition, and other factors that bombed the film.
