It happened while the 35-year-old actress was shooting an intimate scene for NBC drama requiring her to take off her clothes in front of the cameras, bright lights and the entirety of her crew. To make the whole ordeal less nerve-racking, everyone from co-star Mark Tallman to series creator Joe Carnahan disrobed along with her to show their solidarity.
Heigl posted a picture of the scene on Instagram.
“Nope I haven’t gone into the adult film business,” she wrote. “Just having a little fun with my amazingly supportive crew who shed their shirts in solidarity! Love you all!”
