Natalie Portman will bare it all in her new movie Goya's Ghosts.

The film is a historical drama which focuses on the revered artist Francisco Goya. Portman plays the artist's muse, who becomes wrapped up in a controversy after being accused of being a heretic by a Monk. Portman will appear nude during the movie's torture scenes.

This isn't the actresses first time appearing nude in front of the camera. Portman stripped off her clothes in Mike Nichols's 2004 film Closer, but later asked Nichols to remove the scenes. Nichols agreed, and the scenes have never seen the light of day.

Before Portman changed her mind, she seemed very comfortable with the idea of her nude image finding it's way onto the internet:

"Yeah, it'll be nude celebrities dotcom. But that's fine. I'm not scared. I'm brave," said Portman. "I feel like I've got to a point in my life where everything I do is active rather than reactive."

Two-time Academy Award winning director Milos Forman is helmed the film. Forman's filmography includes One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon.

Portman will star along side Javier Bardem (the Monk), Stellan Skarsgård (Francisco Goya), and Randy Quaid. No release date has yet been announced, but the movie is in post production. I would expect the film to hit theaters late this year, just in time for oscar season.

Update: Portman won't be nude after all.
