Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron found the perfect way to ensure the paparazzi don't get a whiff of her nude scenes in upcoming movie 'The Burning Plain', by shooting at the crack of dawn.

The 'Monster' strips for her role in the upcoming drama and is seen smoking a cigarette through an open window in full view of passers-by, <i>New York Post</i> reported.

But movie bosses were worried that photographers would catch the star naked once they discovered the location of the shoot so they changed the time of filming to make sure Theron's scenes were kept secret.

"We had to shoot the scene at 6 a.m. before any of the photographers were up. It was done in such secrecy that it wasn't even in the script. Only three people, including myself, knew it was going to happen," Director Guillermo Arriaga told the newspaper.
