For this week’s “Throwback Thursday” we take a look back at Marisa Tomei’s nude scenes from the 2008 film “The Wrestler” in the video above.
A little known fact about this movie is that at this point in her career Marisa Tomei was actually working at this strip club. In fact, Marisa thought the cameras were there filming for some sort of documentary, and she kept badgering the crew for tips (reportedly even taking two sound bomb operators, a lighting tech, and the gaffe into the “Champagne Room”).
Of course Marisa Tomei’s portrayal of this banged out old nasty stripper was so believable that it rekindled her acting career. The irony is that Marisa was making far more money whoring herself as a stripper than she does in heathen Hollywood, and the casting couch lap dances she has to give are to much fatter and greasier guys.
