    Question clear and funny

    Hello,

    A movie director is talking about shooting scenes involving nudity.

    "You are very clear when you cast in the case of women because men are
    even tougher than women. Men are so funny about showing as much as
    their belly button"

    I don't understand "clear" and "funny" here.

    Does he mean when you cast women, you are sure they won't hesitate
    taking clothes off? And it's more difficult to convince men to be naked
    because they feel very uncomfortable to do that?

    Thank you,
    Tara

    You are quite sure = clear

    "Funny" in this context = unwilling/resistent

    Your interpretation that the directors sees women as willing to do nude work and men as unwilling is correct.

    Hello Anglika,

    Thank you very much for your kind explanation.

    Since I can't believe that women are easier to do nude,
    I was not sure if I understand correctly.

    Thank you,
    Tara
