For two decades now, Nia Long has been one of Hollywood’s greatest sex symbols, turning heads and dropping jaws every time she graces the screen. A few years ago, Long teased fans with an intimate look into her beauty when she posed nude, while pregnant, on the cover of Ebony. Now, Long is doing it, once again, as she poses nude for the new issue of Allure.
The 43-year-old actress is one of four women, including Kristen Bell, Minni Driver, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who are stripping down to their birthday suits for the magazine’s annual nude issue.
In a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, Long explains that, although, she’s happy to still be a sex symbol at her age, going nude for a shoot isn’t as sexy as it looks.
“I would say that posing nude is probably the most uncomfortable thing ever — not from a spiritual sense, but from a practical sense. There has to be an arch in the back, there has to be hair covering the nippy action,” Long revealed.
“I think a woman is most beautiful when she’s just comfortable in her skin, no matter what size she is. My boobs are not the same as they were before, I’m not going to lie. But you know what? I’ll let you guys be the judge of that when you see the photos,” she adds.
Well, we’re certainly not uncomfortable looking at her body, which is definitely still bombshell worthy. And she’s not alone. Check out the other women’s photos from the nude shoot after the cut. – nicholas robinson
