Embarrassing to strip for film roles: Gwyneth Paltrow

London: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow does not enjoy stripping down for film roles and finds it embarrassing too.

The 41-year-old actress, who donned a skimpy black lingerie for a bedroom scene in the movie `Thanks For Sharing` earlier this year, said she found the experience embarrassing because she is much more conservative in real life, reported Contactmusic.

"Doing the lingerie striptease, I`m not sure exactly how you would classify that, but it was very embarrassing. I was not comfortable at all, but, you know, it was a good challenge for me to put myself in a situation that I would never be in in my own life.

"I`m not an exhibitionist like that. And it was a challenge. I`m this other woman and I`m really going to go for it. And it was fine," she said.

The Oscar-winning actress also praised her co-star, Mark Ruffalo, for helping her to stay calm during filming.

"Mark is so lovely. He made it very easy."
