    German actor David Kross did a nude scene opposite Kate Winslet in The Reader. It was a bit controversial because he was 17 when movie production began and those scenes could not be completed until he turned 18 this past July. He gives quite a brilliant performance playing the young Ralph Fiennes from age 15 through his years as a law student.

    Does anyone have screen caps?

    Still looking for some David Kross screencaps from someone with connections. There have to be a ton of screening DVD's out there since the movie was and will be nominated for multiple awards.

    I showing an underage guy's pics is a violation of board rules. As I've been told.

    David Kross was eighteen when he shot his nude scenes for The Reader. That's very well documented, and believe me, I checked before I started the thread.

    What I meant was he could have been underage when those photos were taken. I didn't mention the movie.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. If that were the case, you'd be right on.

    Yeah, the guy's huge. His character is supposed to be 15 years old and Kate Winslet is supposed to be a woman in her 40s who has an affair with them. They had to wait until Kross turned 18 to film the scene because of German laws. The sill is here at Tabloid Prodigy.com

    This is totally crazy that they couldn't have just filmed the movie with him sitting in the bath like everyone else in the world does it. If this isn't a case of exploitation nothing is. I don't care if he was willing to do it, its just stupid. And portraying him as a 15 year old yet at that.

    "On having to wait, Kate said “David just thought it was ridiculous. We’re talking about a young man. We’re not talking about a 12-year-old. It’s not pornography, it’s not indecent."

    Amen to that.

    This film was brilliant in many ways. A must watch in my opinion.
