Actress Minnie Driver has revealed she received nasty comments about her bikini body.

And what better way to silence her critics than publishing a nude photo?

Driver was one of four actresses, including Kristen Bell, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Nia Long, who stripped down for Allure magazine as part of their body issue.

"If you want people to stop talking about how you look in a bikini, let them see you naked," the actress captioned the picture. "It tends to shut them up :)"

She recently quit her Twitter account after being bombarded with hate messages following the publication of bikini photos on a recent holiday.

"God some people are horrible: you try being photographed when you don't know it's happening, when you're on holiday with your kids," she said at the time on her decision to leave the social network.

"I'm out of this Twittersphere for a while. It's too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul. Not worth it."
