Catherine Zeta-Jones In Naked Photo Shoot for Allure Magazine

Catherine Zeta-Jones has stripped off for her first ever nude photo shoot for the may issue of Allure Magazine. She shows she hasn’t lost all her curves despite recent paparazzi pictures which suggested her frame was shrinking and prompted a few Catherine Zeta-Bones headlines.

Catherine Zeta-Jones has stripped off for her first ever nude photo shoot for the may issue of Allure Magazine. She shows she hasn’t lost all her curves despite recent paparazzi pictures which suggested her frame was shrinking and prompted a few Catherine Zeta-Bones headlines. The actress says in the accompanying interview that she’s proud of her body at the age of 40 – and always has been.

The actress's plan for her family, which includes husband Michael Douglas and their two young children: living on a boat and sailing around the world. "I wouldn't be surprised if we do that," she says. Here, Thompson shows the actress one of the shots. Photo: Michael Thompson / Allure Magazine

Mrs Michael Douglas, currently starring in Broadway show A Little Night Music in New York, was happy to drop the robe for the nude section of the shoot and says nudity is not an issue for her. She said: “That’s when your dancing days and being in theatre pay off. When you’re doing a quick change, you don’t give a damn who sees you.”

For "sexy bed hair," hairstylist Orlando Pita (above) spritzed Zeta-Jones's wet hair with volumizing spray, blew it dry, and curled it. To make it "a bit disheveled," he brushed and teased the curls. Photo: Michael Thompson / Allure Magazine

She revealed in an interview earlier this year how she’s having to cover up more since moving to New York. The Welsh actress told US chat show host David Letterman that she has had to stop running around her garden naked after moving from the privacy of Bermuda to bustling New York.

For the shoot, Page wanted to give Zeta-Jones "luminous and beautiful skin." He layered rose and pink-gold cream blushes on her cheek- and brow bones, then lined her lashes with black pencil and cream shadow. He then applied a blend of khaki and gold eye shadows. The final touch: creamy rose lipstick. Photo: Michael Thompson / Allure Magazine

She told Letterman how she used to frolic nude at the sprawling Bermuda mansion where she lived with husband Michael Douglas, 65, and their children. But these days her al fresco fun has ended since the family moved to the Big Apple last year.

She said: “In Bermuda, the children were like naked, opening the back door. So was I. Just running out into the garden. It’s really hard to do that in Central Park!”

When it was time for the nude portion of the shoot, Zeta-Jones promptly dropped her robe. "That's when your dancing days and being in theater pay off," she said. "When you're doing a quick change, you don't give a shit who sees you." Photo: Michael Thompson / Allure Magazine

In the interview with Allure she also revealed her plans for the future with her family, saying she would love to live on a boat and sail around the world. “I wouldn’t be surprised if [we do] that,” she added.
