6. About Schmidt
It’s not one of those nude scenes that many people will rewind and watch over and over, but Kathy Bates au naturel in the hot tub may suggest at least a tiny breach of the movie industry’s obsession with teens and twenty somethings smaller than a Size 4.
Could they be reaching out to the vast majority of the real world who resemble Ms. Bates more than they resemble Anne Hathaway, but are still fond of getting naked when called for? Whatever the motivation for this scene, you’ve gotta hand it to a distinguished actor of a certain age parading the whole thing in front of the camera.
