One could be easily forgiven for thinking that we’d never see Elle Fanning naked in our lifetimes. The sheer volume of implied nudity and other such teases we’ve been forced to lament over felt like a sure sign that that was all we were going to get. Keener minds, however, might have noticed the slow and subtle build-up. First there was the majestic downblouse in Galveston, then a ramp up to the blurry flash of nip during the sex scene in All The Bright Places, and if you want to count it, the leaked sideboob, though it’s never quite as fappable without a face in the shot. Finally, in the previous season of The Great, we got a faceful of ass, plump and luscious, but not so much as a peek of the goods out front.
But now, all has been made right in the world. The ninth and tenth episodes of the second season of The Great have between them two great nude scenes, and by great, what I mean is we get high definition evidence that her nipples exist. But that’s all right for two reasons. The first is that Hulu streams the historical comedy-drama-reluctant-titty-show in 4K, which fits quadruple the amount of pixels per proportion of the screen, making it that little bit easier for us to forget that we’re fapping to a mosaic of dots on a screen. The second – perhaps more important – reason is that the trajectory continues. What next? Elle Fanning full frontal? Two-hour long feature film that consists entirely of an 8k close-up of her spread open pussy lips? OK, to be fair, it’s probably not going to get quite that far, and frankly, if it did, I’d feel like much of the magic has died.
What I am certain of is that we will be seeing a lot more Elle Fanning nude scenes in the blessed years to come, and in all likelihood, they will be longer, more detailed, and given the relentless march of technology, hopefully higher resolution. The upcoming third season of The Great will likely contribute toward this noble goal, but as long as the delectable Miss Fanning’s career continues to soar, many a pervy producer will be lining up to help humanity along in this very important, nay, essential, way. HBO would certainly be up for that – for the first season, in any event, if following Game of Thrones rules, and the first episode, if following Rome rules.
Technically, Elle Fanning’s topless debut came in the eighth episode, but visibility was insufficient and there was a gigantic prosthetic pregnant belly to kill the mood (or elevate it, if that’s what you’re into). The ninth episode, however, has her pulling her gown up over her head, giving us a full look at both of her breasts – though not at the same time, because that would just be lewd – while she’s making out with her co-star, Nicholas Hoult. The tenth episode opens with a sex scene between the couple. The shots in that one aren’t particularly graphic, but we do get a hanging sideboob, which is welcome in these trying times. All in all, it’s about 10 seconds of material, but a perfectly acceptable quantity to shine off the fifth fap of the day to if you have it on loop.
When we got the Elle Fanning leaked nudes, it was the consolation prize that we felt we had to accept. Now here we are, with a true nude scene that any seedy director would be proud of. All that needs to happen now is for Hulu to take the Starz approach (the Spartacus network, not to be confused with the Disney service) and have unnecessary but by no means unwelcome nudity in every episode. Until then, enjoy seeing Elle Fanning naked in the 4K screencaps from The Great below.
