...of posing naked on a magazine cover. Entertainment Tonight
reported on March 13 that the V for Vendetta
actress (looks like a kickass movie, by the way) will pose nude, or nearly nude, for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair
, replacing a planned coved of ex-couple Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow. Portman recently posed for a page in the March issue, but was fully clothed. She'll follow in the footsteps of Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson, Teri Hatcher, Lindsay Lohan, Angelina Jolie, Joy Bryant, and Jennifer Aniston, all of whom have recently posed semi-clothed or completely nude for the magazine. I'm not a feminazi or anything, but it seems like every single actress in Hollywood is shedding their clothes for VF
these days. It's like the new Playboy
, except it's still considered 'arty' because Annie Leibowitz shoots the stills and Dominick Dunne contributes articles from time to time. Also, notice how Tom Ford is fully clothed on the March cover? Why can't he
show some skin? (Not that I'm attracted to him, I'm just trying to make a point.) I'm sure Portman's photos will be tasteful, but I'm just a little disappointed. Rachel McAdams has some integrity; she signed off on the Ford-Johansson-Knightley shoot at the last minute. That girl is gorgeous.
Speaking of Vanity Fair
, rumors are circulating that Britney Spears - assuming she's with child again - wants to do a nude cover in the spirit of Demi Moore's from the early 90's. Please, God, no. No to the pregnancy and no to the cover. The public doesn't need either.
