Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep is advising young actresses to not take their clothes off just to give their careers a boost.

According to ananova.com, Streep advised actresses Keira Kinghtley and Scarlett Johansson not to feel pressured to pose naked for more publicity. Both of them had recently posed naked together for the magazine Vanity Fair.

Streep says, "They obviously feel that, to emerge from the pack, they need to distinguish themselves by being more willing to do that than anyone else. It's not about the roles they aspire to - it's that they have to sexualise themselves. (The new generation) have it drilled into their heads that they need to glamorise themselves (in order to succeed)."
