Oscar winning actor Robin Williams, known for his method acting, has gone full frontal nude in his upcoming film to show the "catharsis" of his character.

Robin"At the end, he's kind of shedding everything. Maybe I should go full. And that's how we work. It wasn't done for a laugh. It's cathartic at that point, he's going full-tilt breakdown," Williams said about his character.

However, it was not easy as Williams who took a long time to get waxed for a nude scene in World's Greatest Dad, Los Angeles Times reported.

The idea to get hairless for the climax of the film was apparently initiated by Williams but it was a tough act as the women doing the wax job had to take a break during the waxing session.

Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, World's Greatest Dad, stars Williams alongside Alexie Gilmore, Daryl Sabara, Geoff Pierson, Henry Simmons and Mitzi McCall.
