Fast Times At Ridgemont High was a seminal movie in so many ways. It helped launch the careers of a whole bunch of later big name actors. They include Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sean Penn, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, Eric Stoltz, Nicolas Cage, Forest Whitaker and Anthony Edwards. But for most of us, it’s best remembered for containing some of the most iconic teen celebrity nude scenes!
Fast Time At Ridgemont High Famous Nude Scenes – Jennifer Jason Leigh
Oscar nominated actress Jennifer Jason Leigh was just 19 when she won the part of Stacy Hamilton in Fast Times At Ridgemont High.
Jen has done plenty of nude scenes since in movies such as Single White Female and Last Exit To Brooklyn. But her Fast Times At Ridgemont High scenes were arguably her most shamelessly gratuitous. She was showing her tits to, um, tittilate. And it most definitely worked!
She plays a 15-year-old sophomore virgin who’s pretending she’s 19. She wants sex! She blushes simulating a blowjob on a carrot in the school cafeteria after a bunch of guys start clapping.
Stacy looses her virginity to an older stereo salesman with an unsatisfying hump in a softball dugout. She figures there’s gotta be more to sex and focuses laser-like on getting it.
Jennifer Jason Leigh’s subsequent attempts at seduction are a tantalising mix of awkwardness and arousal. Exactly like the first sexual fumblings for most of us, in other words! Jen’s attempts to get what she wants sends one spotty suitor running when she flashes him the goods. Another pops his load about five seconds after he penetrates her. Poor Stacy!
Fast Times At Ridgemont High Nudity: The Legendary Phoebe Cates Pool Scene
Phoebe Cates nude scene in Fast Times At Ridgemont High is probably the most celebrated helping of celebrity skin from any teen movie. Phoebe plays all-american gal Linda Barrett. Unlike her gauche best friend Jennifer Jason Leigh, Linda is the supremely confident homecoming queen type. Guys love her and she knows it!
The one Phoebe Cates scene everybody remembers we include here as there’s plenty of us who never tire of seeing it! Few guys can have failed to dream something similar after a visit to the pool.
Judge Reinhold, who plays Jennifer Jason Leigh’s brother, is peeking on Phoebe at the pool. He’s in the bathroom perving out the window one minute, and the next sitting on the toilet jerking himself off.
He fantasizes Phoebe climbs out of the pool, drippping wet and walking towards him in slow motion. As she climbs the steps, we get a close-up of her purring seductively: “Hi, Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were …”
By this point, old Judge is yanking it like crazy on the bog. Cut to fantasy of him standing in a dinner suit by the pool as Phoebe slowly approaches. She undoes her bra, revealing her beautiful boobs. While Judge is getting ready to pop his load, we cut to the real Phoebe. She dives in the pool, climbs out and asks Jennifer Jason Leigh if she has any Q-tips because she has got water in her ears. Jen says she should check in the house.
We know what’s coming next! As a dripping wet Phoebe opens the bathroom door, Judge Reinhold is beating his meat like a jockey going for the finishing line. He jumps to get caught. Phoebe’s shocked hand over her mouth, meanwhile, is a perfect exclamation mark on which to end the scene.
Back in 1982 when Fast Times At Ridgement High was out, it was the age of VHS video. You could tell how many times the Phoebe Cates scene had been paused by the fact so many copies were distorted at the juicy bits!
Fast Times At Ridgemont High Porn Parody: Hardcore Tribute
They say no movie has made it to legendary status until they have made a porn parody of it. Of course, Fast Times At Ridgemont High has one. It’s pretty explicit, so if you’re easily shocked don’t check out the video clip above!
Screenwriter Cameron Crowe went undercover at Clairemont High School in San Diego to get inspiration for the coming-of-age teen classic. It clearly worked. In 2005, Fast Times At Ridegemont High was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. It’s an honour reserved only for movies deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” Unforgettable nude scenes don’t hurt either!
