Who is the sexiest young celebrity these days?

Indeed. From her Wikipedia page -

'Ecstasy

 

In early 1933, at age 18, Lamarr, then working under the name Hedy Kiesler, her maiden name, was given the lead in Gustav Machatý's film Ecstasy (Ekstase in German, Extase in Czech). She played the neglected young wife of an indifferent older man.

The film became both celebrated and notorious for showing Lamarr's face in the throes of an orgasm, which according to Marie Benedict's book "The Only Woman In The Room" was instigated by someone sticking her with a pin. There were also closeups and brief nude scenes, a result of her being "duped" by the director and producer, who used high-power telephoto lenses.

Although she was dismayed and now disillusioned about taking other roles, the film gained world recognition after winning an award in Rome. Throughout Europe, it was regarded as an artistic work. In America it was considered overly sexual and received negative publicity, especially among women's groups. It was banned there and in Germany'.

1933 - Hedy Lamarr says that she was duped into Ecstacy's nude scenes by the producer and director and their use of telephoto lenses. 

1992 - Sharon Stone says that Paul Verhoeven told her that the way Basic Instinct's 'pussy flash' interrogation scene was lit meant that no-one would be able to see anything.   

Those pesky lyin' pervy directors!

Or in the pre-credits sequence of Diamonds Are Forever, when Bond is vengefully searching for Blofeld and he whips off that woman's bikini top to throttle her for info and we get a brief 'eyeful'. 

 

There's also a 'nip slip' with Ruby in OHMSS, if memory (mammary?) serves.   

And best not try to list all the silhouetted and not-so-silhouetted nudes from the opening credits sequences, we'll be here all day.
