* ModestyBedsheet: ZigZagged during Romeo and Juliet: Hussey has one of these during a scene featuring her Juliet and Romeo in bed together, post-nuptuals. There was some controversy when Franco Zefferelli kept a split-second shot of her breasts exposed, despite her only being under 18. There's a famous story that she was kept out of the London premiere of the film because she was still not yet 18, and there was nudity depicted in the film. The nudity was her own body.

* DawsonCasting: Famously averted, or at least downplayed. Olivia was actually a teenager when she played Juliet. [[note]]The character of Juliet was meant to be ''12-going-on-13'' though, in Shakespeare's play. The actress was 16 or 17 at the time of filming.[[/note]]

** Led to a funny bit of irony. When the movie was released in 1968, she wasn't allowed to attend the London premier because a nude scene in the film gave it a rating too high for the then-17 year old. The nude scene in question? ''Her own.''
