Nudity

1. It really annoys me when my cousin does nudity in films.
2. It does annoy me when my cousin stars in naked scenes in movies.

Hi everyone! Between "my cousin does nudity in films" and "my cousin stars in naked scenes in movies", which sentence is more correct?

Thanks so much!

On top of one's career

Hi everybody! Is there an idiomatic way to describe when you are "on the top of your career"?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

Thick skull

Hi everyone! I don't get the meaning of the part "getting it through my very thick skull" in this context below. What does it mean?

"I fell in love with my wife twenty years ago. I am only now, it seems, getting it through my very thick skull how lucky I am."

Thanks so much!
