The Broadway production ‘Take Me Out’ has a stringent no cell phone policy for the audience, but that didn’t stop video footage of star Jesse Williams performing a fully naked in a scene – “The View” panel weighs in.
“I say it’s a matter of time,” Goldberg started. “If you take a gig and you know you got to take your clothes off, you live in the world where cellphone video is going to happen at some time.”
Nudity has always been prevalent in the arts, all of the women agreed. “I’ve seen more naked men onstage than in my bedroom,” co-host Joy Behar said.
“Jesse Williams looks like a specimen,” Hostin gushed. “He looks gorgeous, he looks beautiful, his body is beautiful, and — this is serious — I have at least 20 friends that have now bought tickets because of what they saw.”
Because of Williams’ reaction to the leaked photos during an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Hostin stated she felt comfortable now after staring at the photos for “a ridiculous amount of time.”
“It’s a body — once you see it, you realize it’s whatever, it’s a body,” Williams told host Andy Cohen on Monday. “I just have to make it not that big of a deal.”
