Well, that’s all you’re gonna get out of Jessica Alba. It seems the closest she’s willing to get to breaking her no nudity streak is a painfully short shot from the side with all the good bits covered, and even that’s rumored to be a fake. It does, however, fit in with the theme of this final post in the three part series on Machete – gratuitous, exploitative audience service without actual explicit nudity.
The movie is better known for this for the entire chapter dedicated to Michelle Rodriguez running around in a bikini top and an eyepatch, shooting people and interrogating a senator. Glorious piece of cinema history. I guess it would have been better without the bra, but that argument probably goes for every movie ever made. Besides, like Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez is one of those actresses that don’t sell nude scenes for roles, so this is the best we’re gonna get.
Or is it? Principal photography for Machete Kills – the sequel – has already been completed, and the new film will apparently be R-rated like its predecessor. That’s not the best part, though. Machete Kills will also feature an expanded all-star cast. Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Antonia Banderas and Cuba Gooding Jr are all set to star, as are Vanessa Hudgens, Lady Gaga, Amber Heard (bottom left) and Alexa Vega (bottom right). Here’s to hoping the latter group deliver a great performance. And by “great”, I mean full of unnecessary nudity.

The Jessica Alba scene is too short for video and the sequel hasn’t been released, but enjoy some under-dressed gunfights featuring Michelle Rodriguez with the clip and caps below.
