Leslie Mann felt 'protective' of Megan Fox in partial nudity scene in 'This is 40' (Video)

By Gina DiFalco,

While promoting their film This is 40, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd talked about the scene with Megan Fox showing her breasts.

The stars of the film, which is loosely based off of their characters from Knocked Up as well as Mann’s life with husband Judd Apatow (who directs the film) and their daughters (who are also in the film), sat down with MTV News to discuss the film’s theme – aging.

"If we're going to try and make this movie and go to places that you haven't really seen before that are completely honest, which was always the appeal of it to me," Rudd explained. "Then we started doing it and we went to some really dark places and you're thinking, 'There's no way he made them up.' "

But there was one scene that was completely made up, and that was the scene when Mann feels Fox’s breasts.

“I don't think anyone was nervous. I just wanted to get it over with as quickly as possible because I felt very protective of her," Mann said of the scene with the 26-year-old. "There were a lot of people around, a lot of boys around — probably dirty boys with dirty thoughts."

Mann’s husband of 15 years, however, Apatow, did feel uncomfortable with the scene.

“I get so uncomfortable with even partial nudity in movies. I'll do one or two takes, and feel weird," he told Yahoo! Movies, Us Weekly reports. "Megan is a beautiful woman, but she literally changes the temperature of a room when she walks in."
