Taylor Schilling on Stripping Down for Orange Is the New Black: 'I've Been Scared of the Nudity'

Originally posted 05/21/2015 03:10PM

Taylor Schilling admits she's not exactly eager to peel off the orange jumpsuit to show the world what's underneath.

"I've been scared of the nudity," Schilling, 30, said during a panel for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' screening of Orange Is the New Black in West Hollywood on Wednesday. "Just as an actor [that] has been frightening for me."

But if filming a nude scene is what's needed to get to the heart of her character, the star isn't afraid to undress. The actress, who plays Piper Chapman on the hit Netflix show, made the admission after she was asked about the last time she called show creator Jenji Kohan to talk about a scene.

Orange Is the New Black's Danielle Brooks Breaks Down While Talking About Being a Role Model

Originally posted 05/21/2015 01:05PM

As a curvy woman, Danielle Brooks has always struggled with society's standards of beauty – she even wrote a whole essay about it recently for Glamour. And now that the Orange Is the New Black star is a role model for women like her – well, it's clearly an overwhelming blessing.

The actress, 25, who plays Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the Netflix show, broke down in tears talking about the topic Wednesday at an Academy of Television Arts and Sciences "For Your Consideration" screening of the show in West Hollywood.

"Being a woman of curves, I really find that it's very important to talk about loving your body where you are," she said during a panel discussion. "People's beauty standards [are] something I've definitely struggled with in my life. And I'm just so grateful to be on a show where people love me, Taystee, for who she is – and they've come to love Danielle for who I am, and it's not because I'm a size 2 and it's not because I'm light-skinned with long hair."

Originally posted 05/21/2015 08:50AM

Moments after taping his final Late Show ever, David Letterman was walking the streets of Manhattan like any other New Yorker.

Reportedly using a fake limousine as a decoy, the notoriously low-key host actually snuck through Angelo's Pizza, next door to the Ed Sullivan Theater, and walked the few blocks from Broadway and West 53rd Street to the afterparty at the Museum of Modern Art on 53rd between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, according to the Daily News.

There, he mingled with friends and stars including Steve Martin, Tina Fey and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Not much else was known about the afterparty, with the guests generally staying off social media during the event. A reporter for The Wrap said he was told Letterman, 68, "only stayed for a bit."
