Julia Stiles Opens Up About Playing An Escort On Internet Series 'Blue'
June 20th, 2012 8:48am EDT
Actress Julia Stiles had strong reservations about playing a prostitute in upcoming Internet series Blue because she feels "shy" stripping off for sex scenes.
The Bourne Identity star plays a single mother who becomes a call girl to make ends meet in a new YouTube.com program, but Stiles admits she was initially hesitant to take on the project due to the risqué premise.
She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm kind of scared of the Internet and I wasn't that interested in the idea of a YouTube show until I read the script. I was hooked from the first scene... I was always a little bit wary of playing somebody who was working as an escort because it's just a very delicate subject matter...
"I just thought that there have already been so many movies and shows about prostitutes. And I'm just shy in front of a camera in terms of confronting that kind of subject matter. But it also just has to be handled properly."
