Mary-Louise Parker regrets bathtub scene from “Weeds” finale
“Weeds” star Mary-Louise Parker told More Magazine that she regrets her sexy scene from last season’s “Weeds” finale.
The 44 year old actress, who plays Nancy Botwin in the series claims that she was “goaded” into doing a topless scene while she was in a bathtub.
“I didn’t think I needed to be naked, and I fought with the director about it, and now I’m bitter,” Parker says in the June issue of the mag.
“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.”
The show’s co-executive producer, Roberto Benabib, defended the decision by saying that the scene was used to illustrate Nancy’s vulnerability. “I thought it was wonderful, one of the five best scenes Mary-Louise has ever done”, he said.
