NEWSTANDS: May 2010
MODEL: Catherine Zeta-Jones
PHOTOGRAPHER: Michael Thompson
NOTES: In one memorable moment of her current Broadway show, Catherine Zeta-Jones, keeping her back to the audience, flashes a male co-star with only a G-string under her silk robe. “I’ve got to keep it interesting for the boy. We’ve got a long run,” says the actress. She brought the same gutsy attitude to her Allure shoot, where she posed nude for Michael Thompson. See these pictures, plus shots from her 2007 Allure cover story. For more beautiful nudes, plus our interview with Zeta-Jones, pick up the May issue of Allure, on newsstands April 20.
“That’s when your dancing days and being in theater pay off,” she said. “When you’re doing a quick change, you don’t give a shit who sees you.”
“The only person I want to be in the trenches with is Michael. You know he’s got your back.” And does her husband want to be in the trenches with anyone else? “Probably not,” she says, with a sudden peal of laughter. “Probably Kathleen Turner.”
“I left school at 15,” Zeta-Jones says of her life experiences. “I’ve been on the road all my life. I’ve seen a lot; I’ve heard a lot. And you grow up really kind of quick.” (Photographed in New York City by Michael Thompson for the August 2007 issue.)
