1. Kelly Brook and Riley Steele in “Piranha 3D”
6. Rebecca Creskoff in “Hung”
2. Jessica Pare in “Hot Tub Time Machine”
7. Mary-Louise Parker in “Weeds”
3. Paz de la Huerta in “Boardwalk Empire”

Although Mr. Skin is pleased with the nude offerings in 2010, he admitted that nothing in his website’s 11-year history has ever topped his No. 1 favorite nude scene of all time. “Phoebe Cates in ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ is still my favorite, hands down. Nothing has ever changed my mind, I doubt it ever will. It’s the best,” he said. He also gave it up to chronic nudists such as Angelina Jolie, who, by his count, has been naked in 13 films. Veteran actress Helen Mirren is also a legend when it comes to nude scenes, stripping down in 15 films throughout her long career.

The Christmas Tree Debate: Real Vs. Fake

Every Christmas the same question pops up: Is it better to get a real Christmas tree that has to be discarded after a few weeks, or a fake Christmas tree you can use year after year? It’s debatable whether a real or artificial tree makes the best Christmas tree – there are pros and cons of each type. The Anniston Star lists the pros and cons of each:
 
Real tree:
Pros:
·         The beauty of a real Christmas tree is spectacular.
·         There are many species to choose from, they offer a natural pleasing fragrance and they come in a variety of textures, sizes and shapes.
·         The experience of going to a tree farm or nursery and picking out your very own Christmas tree can be made into a special family event.
·         Real trees are also biodegradable and can be recycled into mulch or as a fish reef after the holidays.
 
Cons
·         They aren’t cheap unless you want a cheap-looking tree. The cost you put into a real tree or two can sometimes be about the same cost of an artificial one.
·         They have to be watered regularly to keep them looking good and to prevent them from drying out.
·         They can potentially become a fire hazard if they dry out and are near a heat source.
·         Clean-up can be a big mess. When the time comes to take down the Christmas tree, it will likely be drier and will have started dropping lots of needles.
·         Some real trees are not being recycled and wind up out with the garbage and in the landfills instead.
 
Fake tree
Pros:
·         Convenience, convenience, convenience.
·         A fake tree can be used year after year, doesn’t create much of a mess and doesn’t have to be watered and maintained.
·         Many of the newer artificial trees look very realistic.
·         Others come in an array of seasonal colors.
·         Some fake trees come with built-in lights, or partly decorated.
·         Once the holiday season is over, you can just pack it up and store it until next year.
 
Cons
·         Some are cheap, look pathetic and just embarrassing.
·         They can also be expensive, although in the long run they do pay for themselves.
·         You have to have space to store it year after year.
·         Artificial trees do not have the same effect as real trees in regards to natural fragrance and appearance. (Allergy sufferers might count this as a “pro” instead.)
·         Most are made of plastic and metals, and many don’t even come close to looking like real trees.
