Menounos and Messing were among five women who have stripped down for Allure magazine's Body Images feature, which also include Morena Baccarin (V, Homeland), Leslie Bibb (Talladega Nights, Iron Man), and Taraji P. Henson (Curious Case of Benjamin Button).

The 43 year old actress we all grew to love in the sitcom ‘Will & Grace’ is now starring in the musical series ‘Smash’ on NBC. Her photoshoot by famed celebrity photographer Patrick Demarchelier was a smash as well.

At her age, you would think most women would rather shy away from bodily exposure, but Messing says she isn't afraid to shed her clothes all in the name of feminine beauty.

”Once you have a child, once you pass 40, you have a different relationship with your body. I love my body in a way I never have before,” Messing told the mag.

'Extra’ host and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant Maria Menounos admits she has "some serious issues" when it comes to getting nude.  But the 33-year-old told Allure that she wants to get over the fear of being photographed in the buff.

To prep for the shoot, 37 year old Leslie Bibb revealed that she stopped off at a Korean spa for a body scrub pre-shoot. "Everybody's naked there, and I don't mind," she said. "But I'm like a cat with a feather anytime I see a boob job. I can't look away."

Meanwhile, Taraji P Henson is itching to take her top off at the beach and Morena admitted, "I saw my mom in her underwear more than my friends saw theirs," she said.

The moral here? You can probably get anyone to pose nude as long as it's in black and white or for Instagram.
