Racy nude photos of a number of famous women have been published online, but in contrast to recent hacking incidents involving Scarlett Johansson and others, this time the celebrities have OK’d the project.
The photos are included in a feature by the beauty publication Allure. Featured in the revealing piece are “Extra” host Maria Menounos, TV sitcom veteran Debra Messing, “Popular” star Leslie Bibb, “Person of Interest” actress Taraji P. Henson and “Homeland” actress Morena Baccarin.
The women comment on nudity in general for the feature and talk about how they got in shape for the shoot. Said Baccarin: "This is for the art of it. It’s beautiful. … I don’t do any naked activities except for the obvious ones. No cooking naked. That’s dangerous."
Bibb said her preparation included a four-day juice cleanse and a pre-shoot body scrub at a Korean spa.
Menounos, who admitted to having some “serious issues” with nudity, viewed the photo project as an opportunity to work on her shyness. Said Menounos: "This was definitely challenging, but I feel so much better having done it."
