If the prospect of seeing James Bond and Indiana Jones in a cowboys vs. aliens war movie isn’t enough to get people interested in a film, then actress Olivia Wilde getting slightly nude in a scene will (for the males anyway).
The actress and Cowboys and Aliens co-star Adam Beach, who plays Harrison Ford’s henchmen, revealed that they recently filmed a scene involving Wilde, a bonfire, and 500 Apache warriors.
“We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors,” Beach says. “That was beautiful. You won’t get to see what I saw, but you’ll get a glimpse.”
Asked about the nude scene, Wilde laughs. “Did Adam Beach talk to you? Adam Beach is the best. Last night, we did a scene where I’m naked in front of a group of couple hundred Apache. Pretty amazing, pretty interesting.”
Not that she’s only wild west cheesecake in the film. “I do kick-ass in this. I love doing action movies … This movie is so much fun for me.”
I’m sure director Jon Favreau has a perfectly reasonable and justified reason why the lead actress was required to take her clothes off for a scene, and wasn’t included just to rile up the testosterone filled 16-35 male demographic.
The film also stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell and Noah Ringer and explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies – cowboys and Native Americans – found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona. Craig will be playing a gunslinger who is joined by a woman named Ella (Wilde), and together they attempt to take on the alien invasion.
Cowboys and Aliens will be released next July and was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof (Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen).
