Former "Downton Abbey" star Jessica Brown Findlay says she regrets going topless for a 2011 film.

Findlay told Radio Times magazine that it was "naiveté" that led her to bare her breasts for her lead role in Niall MacCormick's movie "Albatross."

"To be honest, 'Albatross' was naiveté and not knowing that I could say no," she said, according to US Magazine's promo for the interview. "I had no idea what was going to happen and thought I was going to be shot from behind."

She added that a nude scene is likely "not something" she would do again.

The 23-year-old actress, who played Lady Sybil Branson in the period drama "Downton Abbey," will next star alongside Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe in the upcoming film "Winter's Tale."

Visit Radio Times for an official preview of the interview. The full version was published in the magazine's print version.

Findlay is not the first actress to express birthday suit regret. In 2009, Mary-Louise Parker told MORE magazine that she wished she hadn't stripped down for a bathtub scene during the fourth season of hit Showtime series "Weeds."

"I didn't think I needed to be naked," she told the magazine, according to the Hollywood Gossip. "I fought with the director about it, and now I am bitter. I knew it was going to be on the Internet: 'Mary Louise shows off her big nipples.' I wish I hadn't done that. I was goaded into it."

Even starlet Kate Winslet has said that she wishes she had bared less skin in one of her most iconic roles.

"I wish I hadn't shown so much flesh but I was young and I knew I had things to prove," she told PTI in March last year about her nude scenes in "Titanic."
