As if we needed any more reason to believe Charlize Theron is one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, the South African beauty stripped down for a striking, tasteful photo shoot with W Magazine.

In the stunning black-and-white shot, the "Mad Max: Fury Road" star is seated on a bed of white linens completely nude save for one cocktail ring. Bare-faced, undone and vulnerable, the actress, 40, gazes up at the camera lens above.

Theron joins a large group of other A-listers, including Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks and Bradley Cooper, for the magazine's February "Best Performances" issue, which celebrates the best performances in cinema in 2015 and early 2016.
