Actress Kristen Bell has dared to bare all for a magazine spread - just 12 months after giving birth.
The Frozen star agreed to pose entirely nude, with the exception of strategically placed arms to cover her modesty, for Allure magazine's annual body issue.
She gave birth to daughter Lincoln in March of last year and she revealed her changing body has shaken her confidence.
"My belly skin has made me self-conscious, and it's only gotten worse since I've had a baby," she explained.
"I have definitely and happily used a body double. It's a very nice thing to be able to rely on."
"I talk a big game about being comfortable no matter my size."
"I wanted to put my money where my mouth was."
Bell also said that she felt most beautiful when she was pregnant.
"I was terribly frightened that I would feel like a schlub and not at all beautiful," she told the magazine. "But I've never been so comfortable with my body. When I looked in the mirror, I saw Cindy Crawford."
She was joined by actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who also just gave birth to her first child with husband Channing Tatum, Minnie Driver and Nia Long.
