Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johansson are natural beauties.
The actresses posed without makeup for Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue. The "raw portraits" were taken with "a rare and impressive 20-by-24-inch Polaroid camera" by American painter and photographer Chuck Close.
The up close and personal headshots feature Johansson and Winslet in front of a simple gray background. Their wardrobe is casual and understated: the Don Jon starlet wears a gray top, while the Labor Day actress opts for a black scoop neck sweater. They both sport simple pendant necklaces.
Both women stare straight into the lens; Johansson flashes a big grin, while Winslet 's mouth is shut and she appears more serious. The 29-year-old's wavy locks are down, while the 38 year-old's strands are styled in a loose ponytail.
At the time of the photo shoot, Winslet was pregnant with her third child.
"I don't do glamour shots, and they're not airbrushed or whatever," Close said in a behind-the-scenes video featured on the magazine's website. "So they can be, um...they can be rough. So I need to talk people through it."
He continued, "They have to give up a great deal of vanity in order to do it. And it takes a real act of generosity and faith on the part of the subject to go with it and to give me their image without having any control over what's gonna happen."
No hair, no makeup and no wardrobe was provided, Close revealed. Instead, the women had to "pick something, come on in and comb their own hair."
