Off stage, Ralph Fiennes is no less intriguing. If Ralph Fiennes was a character in a play, these tiny details would have weight: his iPhone screensaver is the graveyard where his father is buried, his bedroom walls are exposed brick, he orders a plate of spinach with his burger and chips but leaves it, the first three buttons of his shirt are undone.

It's remarkably rare for male actors to drop trou and reveal all on camera, allowing their manhood to be immortalized on film. And when it does happen, it can generally earn the film a more restrictive rating from the Motion Picture Association of America than it would if it were a female actor baring their bits.

A Bigger Splash — the new film from Italian director Luca Guadagnino I Am Love, — begins with a scene in which two bodies luxuriate by the pool of their villa on the Mediterranean island of Pantelleria. Each is entirely naked. Marianne Tilda Swinton lies on her back, legs bent and folded, reading a book.
But she admits that when you're about to get to grips with another actor, it probably doesn't boost their ego if you are too busy laughing. The sultry star of the new period drama The Duchess was helping Mamma Mia! But when the actor put on a special flesh-coloured loincloth to hide his modesty, Keira confessed that she took one look and burst into laughter. You are meant to be supportive of each other, but I just lost it.
