Tamsin Egerton has warned her father from watching her raunchy performance in 'The Look of Love', a new biopic of strip club mogul Paul Raymond
Tamsin Egerton says her father shouldn't watch her in 'The Look of Love'.
The 24-year-old actress won't be inviting him to see the film - a biopic of strip club mogul Paul Raymond - and admitted the full nudity she shows on screen is something he "shouldn't have to see".
She said: "I am completely relaxed about the content of the film; there's a great deal of sex on television and the internet where it's not framed in any sort of content, which I find a lot more offensive than a film based on a real man's emotional journey with his daughter.
"My mother will be fine watching it, but I think my dad should stay away - there are some things a father shouldn't have to see!"
Although the star claimed she isn't "body confident", she explained she had to learn to be in order to portray Fiona Richmond, Paul's girlfriend towards the end of his marriage.
She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's You magazine: "I wouldn't dream of accepting a role and then announcing, 'You can only see side boob'. Once you take a role you have to do it properly and do it justice.
"The truth is, I'm not body confident. But I'm an actress playing someone who wasn't in the least bit bothered about stripping off, so that's the ballsy character I became during the film."
