Superbad, Not Supernude



Superbad, out Friday, aims to set itself apart from usual teen sex-comedy fare. For one thing, its wit is much sharper. But for another thing, despite a high raunch factor, there’s no nudity in the film. Star Jonah Hill (above, middle) explains why:

When I see nudity in comedy it always seems gratuitous and misogynistic. It makes you uncomfortable. I mean, why would you do that?…[Writers] Seth [Rogen] and Evan [Goldberg] wanted to make a movie that’s R-rated just because of the language, how people talk to each other. Nudity wasn’t in the script, so why would we add that in?

Besides, according to co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse (above, left), “We didn’t see a lot of nudity in high school.”

Check out shots from last night’s Superbad premiere in Los Angeles below. The aforementioned stars, as well as Michael Cera, Seth Rogen, Casey Margolis, Martha MacIsaac and Stephen Borello all showed up, as did supporters like Kristen Bell, Pharrell, Rumer Willis, the All-American RejectsTyson Ritter and Hanson. Yes, Hanson. [ / Images: Getty]
