Naomie Harris has admitted her feminist beliefs are stopping her from stripping off on screen because she doesn't want to be "sexualised and objectified."

Naomie Harris refuses to strip off on screen because she doesn't want to be "sexualised and objectified."

The 'SPECTRE' star is adamant she won't be pushed into peeling off her clothes and flashing the flesh for a movie role because she's determined to stand by her feminist beliefs.

Speaking to Town & Country magazine, she said: "I don't feel [stripping off] is part of my job, I don't like this sexualisation and objectification. It's not what I'm about at all.

"I was never going to play stereotyped roles, and I was always going to show women, and particularly black women, in a positive light. I'm a feminist, and it's very important to me to reflect that."

The brunette beauty, 39, was cast as the secretary to the Head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Miss Moneypenny, in the franchise's 2012's 'Skyfall', but has admitted she was worried she wouldn't be able to play a "beautiful" Bond girl.

She explained: "I always associated them [Bond girl] with being very sexual and sensual, and that's not what I associate with myself.

"I'm really uncomfortable when the label of 'beautiful' is put on a character. It makes me feel I can't live up to it, somehow."
