'I take everything off?': Hilary Duff recalls 'scary' experience posing nude for magazine cover shoot
Actress and singer Hilary Duff posed nude for Women's Health magazine's May and June issues and admitted the experience was "pretty scary" for her. "I just am not the person that cruises around my house naked. So I was like, 'I take everything off?'" she told E! News.
"We were in a house in Laurel Canyon that was just exposed to a bunch of other houses. So I was like, 'I hope there's not kids looking out the window right now, and they're like, Naked lady!'" Duff revealed to E! News. The actress' mom is one of the many people who are eager to get a copy of the magazine. "She's like, 'I'll grab you a copy!'" the singer laughed.
She added that her husband, Matthew Koma, was thrilled with the shoot, and used one of the nude photos as his profile picture on Instagram for a few days, "He was hyping me up for sure," said Duff. "I'm really proud of my body and I'm proud that it's produced three kids. So I was just like, 'Let's do something that makes you a little uncomfortable, Hilary, and see where we land,'" the 34-year-old actress explained to E! News.
Duff posted the images from the cover shoot on her Instagram with the caption, "Sooooo, this was scary..... I knew doing this would terrify me and I was right! @womenshealthmag had the most lovely all-women shoot and I actually had the best time. I felt strong and beautiful and laughed a lot getting into some of these poses without my high-waisted mom jeans and oversized whatever I normally wear."
"Thank you to everyone who normalized this day for me and propped me up with compliments and love. @nikkilee901 you worked your butt off! @kdeenihan I live for the no makeup/makeup look you give me and the 'sheen' spray was [chef's kiss hands emoji] @daniellamidenge I love these photos so much, thank you for capturing a moment in time where I felt both completely vulnerable but powerful," the actress continued.
"Other big thank you's. Editor-in-chief: @lizplosser Interview: @kvalby Stylist: @kgsaladino (jewelry basically [hand over-mouth emoji]) Everyone played a part and I'm sending virtual hugs! @dominicleeder thank you for getting me motivated every day and in this great shape! And to my mama bear of a publicist @kfostpr for letting me say yes [laughing face emoji] now my husband is really excited to troll me somehow so stay tuned [heart emoji]," the caption concluded.
"I'm proud of my body. I'm proud that it's produced three children for me. I've gotten to a place of being peaceful with the changes my body has gone through. I also want people to know a makeup artist was there putting glow all over my body and someone put me in the most flattering position," Duff said in the cover story interview. The actress has three children: 10-year-old Luca, 3-year-old Banks, and 1-year-old Mae.
