Angie Harmon once skinny-dipped with her husband, Jason Sehorn, on a private beach in Bora Bora. But now the Women's Murder Club
star is stripping down in front of the entire world. Harmon is one of five celebs – including Gabrielle Union, Jill Scott, Zoe McLellan and Ana Ortiz – who shed their clothes in Allure
's May issue.
And Harmon says the photo shoot isn't about selling sex, "It's about showing the female body in a positive, beautiful way." And singer-actress Jill Scott agrees, telling the magazine she hopes her pictorial inspires other women. "Here I am, naked in a magazine at size 16 ... We are all beautiful, each and every one of us."
