Yes, this really is 100% Saoirse Ronan naked. No, it is not the most explicit nude scene ever filmed, nor anywhere close. I’m getting both of those out of the way right from the start because I don’t want anyone to be disappointed if they were expecting something more graphic, and I don’t want anyone crying fake or body double or anything like that. The important thing to focus on in times of nudity famine is that we very genuinely did get to see Saoirse Ronan nude in Ammonite. While I’m getting bad news out of the way, I’ll add that the original scene is so dark, that even with the blu ray as a source and no further compression, the range of light was narrow enough that it begins to look like absolute ass when you bump it up.
Speaking of ass, that’s most of what we get to see from Saoirse Ronan nude in Ammonite. The context is that Kate Winslet is eating her pussy out. No, I’m not joking. If you haven’t seen the movie, it’s about famed paleontologist Mary Anning and geologist Charlotte Murchison, whom the filmmaker has decided were secretly in a lesbian relationship in the 1840s. I’m still not joking. It’s the kind of fanfiction you read on Wattpad. That’s not to say I disliked the movie. I thought it was great. After all, it is literally the only film in which we can see Saoirse Ronan naked.
Someone is going to point out that very early in the American-born Irish actress’ career, we did see Saoirse Ronan nude in How I Live Now (2013). You would certainly be forgiven for assuming that was legit. After all, Saoirse herself talked in an interview with MTV (YouTube mirror) about filming a sex scene in that movie and being half-naked… but that’s the hint, isn’t it? “Half-naked.” If she was only half-naked in her nude scenes, then who was completely naked in her nude scenes? The answer is Laura Harold. Very nice body, but we can equivocally confirm that Saoirse Ronan did use a body double in How I Live Now.
As for the Saoirse Ronan sex scene with Kate Winslet in Ammonite, all indication is that it is all her. It’s true that we don’t see Soairse’s boobs and face in the same frame – like, ever – but one or two shots do pan between them without a cut. Glamour certainly felt it was sufficiently intimate and authentic, but if that’s not enough for you, the Daily Mail have an entire article about how honored Saoirse was to rub her pussy lips all over Kate Winslet’s face on her birthday. And then there’s some other very explicit sex talk in it for good measure. Quite unexpected from an actress that hadn’t done nude scenes before and hasn’t done them since, but I sure ain’t complaining. Here’s Saoirse Ronan naked in Ammonite.
