Arnold Schwarzenegger is not among the most versatile actors in Hollywood, having spent the best part of his time in the industry starring in action-packed movies that demand more literal punches from him than punching dialogues.
The seven-time Mr. Olympias went from dominating bodybuilding competitions to making noise at the box office with movies like Eraser, End of Days, and the Terminator series thanks to his brilliant plan of effectively maximizing his enviable physique.
Boasting such a god-like physique also means when it comes to parting ways with clothes for certain scenes, Schwarzenegger is reasonably comfortable. However, that’s not always the case for his co-stars.

How Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Co-star Emilia Clarke Reacted to Stripping Naked
Arnold Schwarzenegger joined hands with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke for Terminator Genisys, the movie that sees the T-800 Terminator go back in time to kill Sarah Connor, John Connor’s mother.
The 2015 science fiction did manage to gross $440.6 million in worldwide collection against a massive budget of around $158 million. However, many fans shared the opinion that it was more or less a rehash of The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Schwarzenegger, however, enjoyed the experience of filming the movie and in particular found stripping off fun.
“(N*de scenes) are embarrassing, but fun. It leads to funny conversations and funny dialogue and great humour and everything like that,” he told PEOPLE (via NDTV).
“It’s inevitable, you have to do it because it’s what the movie shows, and there are certain times you can cover things up, and there are certain times you don’t and you can’t. So what? I don’t think there’s anyone here that has anything to hide,” the 76-year-old added.
Clarke quipped she had a few things she tried to hide, but she also had a fun time being naked in a harness. “Well, I had a few things I tried to hide. Naked in a harness was fun, doing stunts, that was good,” she said.
Before Terminator Genisys, the British actress had endured a tricky experience while filming n*de scenes in Game of Thrones.

How Emilia Clarke Felt Filming Some Naked Scenes in Game of Thrones During Her Early Days
Clarke’s stint, unlike Schwarzenegger, has been very brief in the Terminator franchise. Instead, she has spent a big part of her successful career as queen Daenerys Targaryen in the epic fantasy series.
As the show progressed, the mother of dragons also developed into one of the bravest and always in control characters in the show. However, off camera, especially when Clarke just started portraying the role, she found certain experiences terrifying.
“I’ve never been on a film set like this before. I’d been on a film set twice before then, and I’m now on a film set completely naked with all of these people, and I don’t know what I’m meant to do, and I don’t know what’s expected of me, and I don’t know what you want, and I don’t know what I want.”
Further, she credited her co-star Jason Momoa for being considerate and caring during Khal Drogo’s wedding night scene.
