Vegetarian Sadie Frost poses nude and unairbrushed for magazine

English actress and fashion designer Sadie Frost posed naked with no airbrushing for UK’s Grazia magazine. The 44 year old mother of 4 wants to show women that while she may not have the perfect figure, it is real and natural.

Speaking in a video interview, Frost explains her decision to pose unclothed for Grazia. “The whole issue for me, the reason I wanted to do it, was because I wanted to put such emphasis on being healthy and holistic. And I felt that there’s been so much pressure on women, and I’ve noticed such a negative movement over the last few years on how peoples’ bodies should be. Really, I just think it’s sending out the wrong message to women.

“So I thought it would be really good, and that’s what I talked to everyone at Grazia [about] and they’ve been incredibly supportive with doing something that was much more realistic. So there’s no airbrushing; what you see is what you get, and I just wanted to give people some idea about healthier options and not to be too extreme or too punishing, and be a bit kinder to ourselves and maybe be a bit more sisterly, and that’s what I enjoyed talking about doing.”

Frost, a vegetarian, posed nude for a PETA UK anti-fur ad in 2006. She was married to Jude Law from 1997 to 2003.  Follow me on Twitter
