Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Kristen Bell and More Pose Nude for Allure [Gallery]

The beauties posed nude for the famous magazine.

  • Nia Long's Allure shoot wasn't exactly easy: "Posing nude is probably the most uncomfortable thing ever, and not from a spiritual sense," says the 43-year-old actress (The Divide, The Single Moms Club). That's not to suggest Long is new to this—she bared all on Ebony cover while pregnant. "I'm still going naked. I can still take it off—two babies later," she says. "The point is to capture the true essence of beauty in our most comfortable state—and that is nude."

  • "I never could have done this when I was 25—no way," says Minnie Driver. "All I saw then were the flaws. I still see the flaws, but I see what's great more—and I've got a banging body." The 44-year-old actress (Return to Zero, About a Boy) credits a mixture of ballet and cardio barre. As for the prep for her Allure shoot? "I juiced significantly. I got a wax. You want to be neat and tidy in front of people you don't know when you're naked, I think—but I'm British."

  • Past experiences with nudity aside, stripping down for Allure less than a year after having a baby presented its own set of challenges for the 33-year-old star of Witches of East End. "I hope I worked out just enough," she says. As for her husband, Channing Tatum, "Chan was really on board with it—he knows I'm very comfortable in my own skin."

Kristen Bell and Jenna Dewan-Tatum posed nude for Allure’s much-anticipated “Nudes” feature.

Last year, Jennifer Morrison, Naya Rivera, Clare Bowen and Christa Miller showed their curves for the magazine, and this year Kristen Bell and Jenna Dewan are joined by Nia Long and Minnie Driver in the pursuit of nothing but the naked truth.

Both Bell and Dewan-Tatum welcomed their babies back in 2013. And though it’s been less than a full year since Dewan, 33, gave birth to Everely in May, she said her famous husband, actor Channing Tatum, was a big supporter of her decision to take it off for Allure.

“Chan was really on board with it— he knows I’m very comfortable in my own skin,” she told the magazine.

Meanwhile, Kristen Bell, who is just coming off the enormous success of “Frozen,” told Allure, “I talk a big game about being comfortable in my skin. I wanted to put my money where my mouth was.”

Speaking of nudity Jenna Dewan Tatum recalls her first—and second and third—trip to a strip club with, of all people, Janet Jackson. “I danced with Janet Jackson, and we toured around the world. I don’t know what it was, but she just really liked going to strip clubs,” she says. “She’s probably like, ‘Thanks, Jenna, for telling the world I go to strip clubs.'”

When asked what sheped her point of view regarding her attitude towards nudity, the actress claims: “You sort of lose all modesty as a dancer. I also think it’s just the way I came out. I’ve always been free-spirited, and it was hard to keep clothes on me as a kid.”

Kristen Bell appears to be candid about her body: “My belly skin has made me self-conscious, and it’s only gotten worse since I’ve had a baby,” she said. “I have definitely and happily used a body double. It’s a very nice thing to be able to rely on.”

She also explained why she decided to strip for Allure soon after delivering a baby: ““I talk a big game about being comfortable no matter my size. I wanted to put my money where my mouth was.”

Kristen spoke of her feelings during pregnancy: “I was terribly frightened that I would feel like a schlub and not at all beautiful. But I’ve never been so comfortable with my body. When I looked in the mirror, I saw Cindy Crawford.”

44-year-old actress, Minnie Driver, revealed to the magazine that she considers her boobs self-conscious, saying: “My boobs do make me a little bit self-conscious, because I had a baby and things really do change. I would rather go bottomless on the beach than topless actually, as it turns out—you’ll never see that, of course.”

Nia Long, meanwhile, said: “ “When you have kids, your body changes drastically. My boobs are not the same as they were before, I’m not going to lie.”
