Laverne Cox wants you to know what she looks like without makeup.

The “Orange Is The New Black” standout star recently posted an au naturale selfie via Instagram in which she flaunted a ‘No Makeup, No Filter [and] No Weave’ look and we have to admit we love it!

While Cox can now proudly post a makeup free selfie, she hasn’t always been bursting with confidence. In an interview with U.K. publication The Guardian earlier this year, Cox said “I have been picking myself apart my whole life. — Years ago, I wanted really highly invasive surgical procedures to feminise my face,” she said. “All these years later, I have the money to do it, but I don’t want it. I don’t want it! I’m happy that this is the face that God gave me, and it’s imperfect.”

In her interview with The Guardian, she even recalled an instance in which an Instagram user suggested she get a nose job. “No, girl!” she replied, noting she didn’t post a reply. “My fans were like, that’s the nose African Americans have, and what’s wrong with that? My fans had my back. In those moments I have to look in the mirror and say, this is my black nose, and it’s gorgeous.” Okay!

    I’d love to see Laverne Cox to wear her natural! She looks lovely in her natural mode!

    i think post-surgery and post-skin bleaching treatments will never equal “au naturale,” but ok.

      Truth and thank you. THIS one is the most feminine I have seen Laverne Cox look though.

    If that’s without any makeup, she must get hella facials because her skin is GORGEOUS.

    Looks less like a dude in drag without all the makeup and weave but still looks like a dude.
