“We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors,” exclaimed “Cowboys & Aliens” co-star Adam Beach during an interview with The Toronto Sun. “That was beautiful. You won’t get to see what I saw, but you’ll get a glimpse.”
When asked by The Sun about her nude scene, Wilde replied “Did Adam Beach talk to you? Adam Beach is the best. Last night, we did a scene where I’m naked in front of a group of [a] couple hundred Apache. Pretty amazing, pretty interesting.”
However, Wilde was quick to point out that she’s not just in the film to look pretty. “I do kick ass in this,” said the actress. “I love doing action movies … This movie is so much fun for me.”
According to previous reports, Wilde will portray Ella, a young woman who teams up with Craig’s “mysterious gunslinger” against the alien invasion. Beach plays Nat Colorado, a half-Apache fighter who works for Ford’s Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde.
Sam Rockwell, Noah Ringer, Paul Dano, Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown and Walton Goggins round out the cast of director Jon Favreau’s hotly anticipated adaptation of the original graphic novel of the same name.
“Cowboys & Aliens” will ride into theaters on July 29, 2011.
