Naked Ambition: From Adam Levine to Miley Cyrus, Hollywood's Most Daring Magazine Nudity


Miley Cyrus
Cyrus courted controversy in 2008 when she participated in a suggestive shoot for Vanity Fair where she was photographed by iconic shutterbug Annie Leibovitz.



Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson
Knightley and Johansson dropped trou to pose with designer Tom Ford on the March 2006 cover of Vanity Fair magazine.



Jennifer Aniston
Aniston graced the cover of GQ in January 2009 while promoting her movie Marley & Me, which went on to become a box office hit. The issue, which featured a patriotic theme, featured Aniston wearing nothing but a red, white and blue striped necktie.



Janet Jackson
A decade before her Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction, Jackson posed for a September 1993 cover of Rolling Stone topless, with her then-secret husband Rene Elizondo Jr. cupping her breasts. A portion of the photo -- shot by Patrick Demarchelier -- also was used as the cover of Jackson's fifth studio album, Janet, released that same year.


Adam Levine
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine bared nearly all for Cosmo UK in 2011, in a photo aimed at raising awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. Those strategically placed hands belong to his then-girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna, a Russian model known for gracing the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Levine told the magazine he was more than comfortable in the nude. "I spend most of my life naked. In fact, I often have to be told by the people around me that it's inappropriate to be as naked as I am. But I live in California, where it's always warm, so why not?"



The Stars of True Blood
Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer appeared on the cover of the Sept. 2, 2010, issue of Rolling Stone, covered in nothing but (we assume fake) blood.
