Actress Susan Sarandon has slammed reports that she urged her daughter Eva Amurri to strip on camera, and insists that she had no idea Eva was appearing nude on US TV series, Californication.
Amurri, 24, who was seen disrobing for a scene opposite David Duchovny on the hit show, never told her parents or her brothers she would be baring all. Sarandon, 63, has now come forward to clear up rumours that she had encouraged her daughter to do the nude scene.
“First of all, she would not listen to me. There’s no way to push my daughter into doing anything. I didn’t push her into it,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying. “She did it herself and she didn’t take permission. She’s a grown-up woman. I guess because everyone expected me to be really upset that she did it, they go to the other extreme... but I thought she did a brilliant job. She has an absolutely unbelievable God-given body and if she’s ever going to do it (get naked) she should do it now. And she understood that. If she was comfortable, I was comfortable. I’m just so happy she found something she likes to do. She was amazing and I hope she gets tons of work from it,” Susan added.
