Director fought over Meghan nude scene

A DIRECTOR who worked with Meghan Markle has revealed randy film bosses confronted him for not writing her a nude scene.

Reg Traviss chose not to have Prince Harry's fiancee strip off in 2015 British gangster film Anti-Social, despite disappointed industry chiefs arguing it would put bums on seats, reports The Sun.

Traviss, 40, said: "Other people definitely would have taken advantage. I think the reason I didn't do anything like that is because other people would have. It wasn't needed for the story.

"I remember at early screenings of the film, various distributors and people like that were like, 'Oh there's no sex scenes or nude scenes.'

 

"Often they look out for things like that because they feel that it sells."

However, Traviss, who dated Amy Winehouse, thought Markle, 36, would have been up for baring all.

He said: "I think with all serious actors they're willing to portray anything if the story calls for it.

"If it's appropriate then doing a nude scene is no different to doing anything else, a fight scene or a long monologue.

"I can only imagine Meghan would fall into that category."
