(Bauer Griffin)more pics »If you drop your pants in front of Zoe Saldana, then expect to get punched. The actress wasn't expecting her co-star James Marsden to get naked just yet while they were filming Death at a Funeral, and she wasn't too pleased about the surprise.

She explained: "The funniest thing that James did wasn't so funny. He's supposed to be naked on the rooftop and I open the window and go, 'What are you doing, come back inside?' He didn't give me any warning that he had taken off his pants.
So I just opened the window and saw a lot more of him than I was expecting, and I'm just trying not to look below his eyes. Afterwards, I yelled at him, 'Warn me if you ever do that again or I'm going to punch you.' And he's like, 'But you were such a lady. You never looked down.' "
As well as being uncomfortable with James' nudity, the actress admits she insisted scenes in another of her new movies, The Losers, be rewritten as she didn't want to bare all on camera.
She told Parade.com:
The way that scene was written in the original script, my character was naked. I literally told the director, 'If I am going to do this scene, there is no way I'm going to be nude because it just isn't necessary or even believable. So there was a negotiation and I ended up in my bra and panties. I don't mind using my physical assets as a weapon, but there's a limit.See more pictures of Zoe Saldana here (click any picture):
