Allure asked five celebrities to bare it all for the camera. Learn what they had to say about self-esteem, their bodies, and stripping down; for more of our revealing interviews with them, pick up the May issue of Allure, on newsstands April 21.
ALLURE: What did you do to prepare for the shoot?
PADMA LAKSHMI: "I exercised a little bit extra, but I actually think I look better when I have a little bit of weight on—my breasts are fuller, and I'm curvier than when I'm at my thinnest."
ALLURE: Are you confident about your body?
PL: "Yes; I like the way I look. I think I look better now than I did in my 20s, because I'm more confident about my body—and I don't want to look like anyone but myself."
ALLURE: Do you sleep naked?
PL: "I tend to sleep in the nude. I'm an innately tactile person and a very sensual-leaning woman. You have to use the word 'leaning' or it sounds like I'm boasting! When I'm in my own private space, I do spend time with very little on."
Padma Lakshmi's favorite part of her body may be surprising – it's the seven-inch scar on her forearm from a car accident at the age of 14.
"I love it because it makes me a person who has an interesting past, and it reminds me that I can survive any pain," the Top Chef host admits in May's annual nude issue of Allure magazine, on sale April 21.
Lakshmi, 38, and four other Hollywood personalities stripped down for the feature. The cookbook-author and model says she has no problem being photographed in such a way. "I didn't feel any more naked without my robe. I don't have any stigma attached to my body. When I'm in my own private space, I have very little on," says. Lakshmi.
Comedienne Chelsea Handler, Dollhouse's Eliza Dushku, actress Sharon Leal and Lynn Collins, from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, also posed. All five say they were comfortable being nude. [PEOPLE]
