For its annual "Look Better Naked" issue, Allure dared some of Hollywood's hottest ladies to bare it all. Jennifer Morrison, Naya Rivera, Clare Bowen, and Christa Miller were brave enough to strip down for the magazine (see a video of the shoot at Allure.com).
Ironically, cover girl Amanda Seyfried kept her clothes on — Page Six reports Seyfried as saying at a dinner in honor of the issue, "I would have [posed nude], but my publicist wouldn’t let me!" — but that doesn't mean she kept things PG (or even PG-13).
Seyfried tells Allure that her vocal coach for Les Miserables asked her to channel another role, that of Linda Lovelace in the upcoming biopic Lovelace, while singing. "Imagine deep-throating a penis, get that feeling in the back of your throat, and then sing. That's where your larynx is," Seyfried quotes her coach as saying. Believe you me, I'll never watch a musical the same way again.
For the her shoot (get a behind-the-scenes look here), Seyfried opted for a playful Zac Posen floral dress — and plenty of cleavage —instead of her birthday suit.
I know, I hear ya, you want the naked photos (you sickos). Here you go.
Once Upon a Time's Jennifer Morrison states the obvious by saying, "I've always been an active person, and working out is part of my life." In other "no duh" news, she says she waxed before the shoot.
Naya Rivera says she wasn't nervous for her nude photo shoot at all. In fact, she's "excited to see it." But even more exciting than stripping down for the mag is knowing that she has become a bit of a sex symbol in the lesbian community thanks to her character on Glee. "It's kind of cool — and it makes me feel like a badass. I get more girls than my boyfriend," she tells Allure.
Nashville's breakout star Clare Bowen takes the practical approach to baring it all. "My body isn't going to look like this forever. I think it's lovely to have that preservation," she says. Oh, and she sleeps naked.
Christa Miller, of Couger Town fame, says she grew up around nudity — her mom was a model and would bring her European model friends to their country house to sunbathe topless. But these days, she doesn't walk around the house naked. "If I did, my husband would make me have sex 40 times a day. That's a true story," she says.
The May issue of Allure hits newsstands April 22, 2013.

When Cougar Town was booted from ABC and moved to basic cable, we wept. When the sitcom bade farewell to showrunners Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel, we sobbed. And when we realized that it would be up against Robot Combat League, we bawled openly. But our fair underdog has proven itself resilient: Cougar Town has cranked out a gem of a fourth season, and is now officially slated to give us a fifth!

In Season 4, we've seen Jules adjust to her second marriage to bartender and neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins), and Jules' son Travis earn the affection of his longtime unrequited love Laurie (Busy Phillips). Season 5 can only expand the Cougar Town universe, introducing more storylines for the likes of stars Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, and scene-stealer Brian Van Holt.

The young stars posed with dangerous weapons and tangled together in a series of sexy positions for the shoot, taken last month (Sep12) to mark the start of the second series in the U.S.
Leading lady Emily VanCamp donned a glamorous gown and, in one sinister shot, can be seen dramatically thrusting a sword into the air.
Her co-star Christa B. Allen also showed off her sexy side - in one photo, the brunette has her hair pulled back as a gun is pointed at her face, and she also poses with actor Gabriel Mann as he licks a revolver.
Allen was also photographed topless as Mann and Connor Paolo help unzip her out of a little black dress. Other images in the series show the male stars stripping off and punching one another.
