The Naked Truth: Celebrities Go Nude for Allure

Whether wearing a lab coat on House or a red leather jacket on Once Upon a Time, Morrison tends to show emotion, not skin. For this shoot, she wore only a swipe of red lipstick.

You've never done a nude scene. Why?
"It hasn't been a conscious choice, but they don't really come my way. Maybe this shoot will change that. I've always been an active person, and working out is part of my life."

What would surprise people about your body?
"Probably how many scars I have. I've had so many moles removed because I'm so fair-skinned."

How did you prepare for the shoot today?
"Nothing crazy or extreme, but maybe one glass of wine instead of two, fish instead of steak. And I got waxed and shaved my legs."

Rivera wasn't nervous about the shoot. "I'm excited to see it—and it's going to be available to the world," she says.

Your character on Glee, Santana, has made you a sex symbol in the lesbian community. How does that feel?
"It's kind of cool—and it makes me feel like a badass. I get more girls than my boyfriend. They always tweet me about my booty."

You used to work as a Hooters waitress. Did you have nightmares about that uniform?
"I have nightmares about that job, period. When I was working there, I was really skinny—a lot skinnier than I am now. But I was always self-conscious."

How did you get over that?
"You can't be so hard on yourself that you're not enjoying every day."

The Nashville actress's rule of thumb: "If nudity is for a shock factor, it takes away from what makes it beautiful."

How often are you naked?
"Sometimes I sleep naked. Everyone does sometimes, don't they? I hope."

What makes you most excited about seeing these pictures?
"My body isn't going to look like this forever. I think it's lovely to have that preservation."

What does this shoot mean to you?
"I said they could photograph my scars. This isn't a rite-of-passage thing or a risqué thing. It's about body image and making other people feel good."

Nothing could have prepared Miller (Cougar Town) for her first fully nude shoot—except maybe two straight weeks of SoulCycle and some carb-heavy incentive.

What will you eat now that the shoot's over?
"I'm going to Courteney [Cox]'s for dinner. I told her, 'You better have carbs.'"

Do you walk around the house naked?
"If I did, my husband would make me have sex 40 times a day. That's a true story."

Do you think Americans are more uptight about nudity?
"My mom was a model, so we'd go to our country house and all her friends would be topless, because a lot of the models were from Europe. I grew up knowing everyone has different boobs."

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to bare it all for a magazine? Well, some of our favorite celebrities including Naya Rivera from 'Glee' and Clare Bowen from 'Nashville' did just that in the May issue of Allure magazine. The actresses took part in the magazines celebrity skin article revealing their insecurities, fears, and appreciation of their own natural beauty

Clare Bowen from 'Nashville' opened up about being photograph with her scars from multiple cancer-related surgeries when she was young saying, "This isn't a rite-of-passage thing or a risque thing, it's about body image and making other people feel good." The May issue of Allure goes on sale April 22nd.
