Mary-Louise Parker bitter over Weeds nude scene

Mary-Louise Parker says she's okay with sex scenes on her show Weeds, but she tells More magazine that she's a little torqued over a recent nude scene in a bathtub. Posing for promo materials in the buff with that python was cool though, right?

Tbd-marylouiseparker051909 "I didn't think I needed to be naked," she says in the June issue. "I fought with the director about it, and now I am bitter. I knew it was going to be on the Internet: 'Mary Louise shows off her big nipples.' I wish I hadn't done that. I was goaded into it."

Co-executive producer Roberto Benabib doesn't see things that way: "We felt at that point in her life, defenses had been so thoroughly stripped away," he says. "There was a nonchalance to the nudity that informed the scene … I thought it was wonderful, one of the five best scenes Mary-Louise has ever done (on Weeds)." 

And besides, how many More readers wished they looked like that at 44? We're guessing all of them.
