Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars stripped down to their birthday suits for Allure magazine’s May issue.
Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox and Sleepy Hollow’s Nicole Beharie are just two of several beauties who were bold enough to pose nude for the publication’s latest issue. But for Cox, she was hesitant at first.
“I said no initially, thought about it, and said no again,” Laverne, who became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy told the publication. “But I’m a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards.”
Beharie explained during her interview with the mag that she was nervous at first, but turning 30 gave her just the confidence she needed. “I just turned 30, and I was really nervous [about posing]…. But I wanted to celebrate and accept my body in an artistic way.”
As for what body part she loves the most, Beharie says that “I love my bum. I have a good bum.”
Jordana Brewster, Katheryn Winnick and Sandrine Holt also posed for Allure’s May issue. Click to see their photos:
‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!
A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!
As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:
“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”
Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.
