True Grit actress Hailee Steinfeld reportedly is up for a role that will require her to undress even though she is only 14 and a minor. Depictions of minors in the nude are often construed as child pornography, even when the purpose is art. Romeo then carries her to bed, kissing her again and again as they explore uncharted territory. Other actresses have appeared nude in movies as minors.

Hailee Steinfeld, 14, Eying Role That Calls For Nude Scene
The new version of "Romeo and Juliet" is getting a lot of negative heat lately thanks to the British tabloids. You may recognize Hailee for her Oscar nominated work in "True Grit". The rumored scene is scripted to have Romeo and Juliet undressing each other until they are both naked. Now, a 14 year old getting naked on set, that to me screams illegal.
No nude scene for Hailee Steinfeld
Hailee Steinfeld won the role of Juliet in Romeo and Juliet , but a love scene in the movie is causing a controversy for the young actress. After it was announced Steinfeld would star in the romantic tale, it was revealed the script called for a racy love scene in which Juliet was to be nude. Romeo then carries her to bed, kissing her again and again as they explore uncharted territory.
The actor appears, however, to be just as impressed by Hailee Steinfeld, 15, who stars opposite him in a forthcoming film version of Romeo and Juliet. It was surreal, like something out of the play — life imitating art. I know Carlo and it will all be done really tastefully.
