The 'Hellcats' beauty, who brings her mother to the photo shoot, explains her reason for striping down, gushing inside the magazine's annual nude issue, 'I'm actually a woman.'
Disney darling Ashley Tisdale has stripped down to her birthday suit for Allure magazine. The "Hellcats" beauty goes completely naked in the publication's annual nude issue. She is featured kneeling down with her back facing the camera and her "believe" back tattoo being exposed to anyone to see.
Inside the issue, the former "High School Musical" star spoke of her reason for disrobing before the camera. "I'm 25, almost 26, but people think of me as much younger because I look young," she clarified. "Being in this shoot was me saying, 'I'm not just the young girl everybody thinks I am. I'm actually a woman.' "
On why she brought her mother to the photo shoot, the "Aliens in the Attic" actress explained, "I've always wanted to be sure my parents approve of what I do." She added, "Even with my tattoos, my mom went with me. The 'believe' tattoo is because my mom always told me to believe."
Also flaunting her naked curves for the magazine was Kaley Cuoco of "The Big Bang Theory". About baring all before the camera, she gushed, "I was way more excited than I ever thought I would be. Which made me realize, I'm more comfortable in my own skin than I thought."
Unlike Ashley who was accompanied by her mother, the 25-year-old confessed, "I have not told my family about this, and I'll tell you why: Until they see the photos, they won't understand." She added, "All a mother or father hears is the word 'naked.' When I told my mom about the shoot, I left out the part about taking my clothes off."
Keri Hilson and Bridget Moynahan have participated in the shoot as well. On why she decided to strip down, Keri in particular said, "We do a lot of things to seek validation: I have to get more expensive handbags or fake lashes or fake boobs. This shoot was about dropping all that."
