Actress Anna Friel has no qualms about appearing naked onstage for her latest role - she loves stripping off.

The former Pushing Daisies star disrobes for a scene in the theatre version of 1961 movie Breakfast At Tiffany's in London's West End.

Her racy role as Holly Golightly has caused a stir in the U.K., with show bosses issuing a ban on audience members taking photos of the star nude.

But Friel admits she is not shy about peeling off her clothes - and would happily conduct press interviews naked.

She tells British TV host Paul O'Grady, "At first I was (nervous). There was a whole debate about when we actually rehearse the nakedness for the first time. It was in a rehearsal room which was very stark and cold and under fluorescent lights.

"I have never really had a problem with nakedness. I could sit here completely naked and be interviewed and not care. But I won't be doing that, don't worry!

"It's so brief and it's not gratuitous, it's not salacious. It's about this guy who sees a naked woman for the very first time. It teaches him to be a bit more open about it and not so stuffy. We've all got them - they just look different!"
