Barry Keoghan laid it all bare in his film salty burnand now he’s opening up about the experience.

The 31-year-old actor shares the screen with Jacob Elordi and Carey Mulligan in the film, but takes center stage in the final scene, which features full frontal nudity.

In it, Barry strips naked while touring a stately home.

He talked about what it was like to film naked during a recent interview. Director and writer Emerald Fennell also revealed how many takes they filmed before they were satisfied with the final product.

Speaking to EW, Barry explained that he became instantly depressed.

“It felt totally good,” he explained. “It’s property. This is my spot. It’s complete confidence in: ‘I can do whatever I want in this mansion.’ I can strip until I’m completely naked and dance a waltz because this is mine. Yeah… it was fun.”

He went on to admit that he was a little nervous when it came time to film the scene.

“The initial thing was that I didn’t have clothes. “I’m kind of, ehhh,” Barry recalled. “But after taking one, I was ready to go. I was like, ‘Let’s go again.’ Let’s go again.’ You forget, because it creates a very comfortable environment and gives you that license to say, ‘Okay, now it’s about the story.'”

There were quite a few times. In total, Emerald filmed the scene 11 times before taking the final shot. She explained that the seventh session was “technically perfect,” but it was missing something special.

“Barry, admittedly, did it four more times until the one you see, who has this fucking totally evil joie de vivre that it’s impossible to disagree with,” he explained.

Barry was also impressed by the scene. “By the way, I didn’t know I could dance like that. I was like, ‘Wow.’ Where did those things come from? Do you know what I mean?,” he told the outlet.

Other actors have also broken down their full frontal scenes. Some even revealed whether they were wearing a prosthesis to cover her manhood.
