STARS DARE TO BARE!

Celebri­ties doff their duds for char­ity — and fun

24 Hours Vancouver - - ENTERTAINMENT - MURISSA BAR­RING­TON

There must be some­thing in that Hol­ly­wood wa­ter.

Ac­tor John Sta­mos cel­e­brated his 54th in Au­gust by show­ing off his birth­day suit in an eye-open­ing In­sta­gram post but he isn’t the only star get­ting naked.

It ap­pears Tin­sel­town’s lat­est trend is to bare it all and there’s a num­ber of rea­sons why they do it.

Some do it for so­cial causes.

Celebs such as Mi­ley Cyrus, Lena Dun­ham and Chelsea Han­dler have shocked our so­cial feeds — and some­times sen­si­bil­i­ties — in sup­port of the #freethenip­ple cam­paign. The move­ment was in­spired by the movie of the same name that ad­vo­cates for equal rights and em­pow­er­ment for women.

Some might be lib­er­at­ing them­selves from pesky hack­ers. Re­cently, hack­ers leaked nude pho­tos of Tiger Woods and Kris­ten Ste­wart to name but a few. In 2014, cy­ber­at­tack­ers stole raunchy data from dozens of celebri­ties’ phones, leak­ing nudes and blind­sid­ing stars like Jen­nifer Lawrence with their smor­gas­bord of celebrity skin.

But rather than give in to hu­mil­i­a­tion, Lawrence re­claimed her power by do­ing a nude shoot for Van­ity Fair mag­a­zine where she called the scan­dal a “dis­gust­ing sex crime.’

Whether th­ese stars are mak­ing a state­ment or sim­ply try­ing to break the in­ter­net, all we know is they love their bod­ies and they want us to know it.

Here’s a look at some of Hol­ly­wood’s big­gest names who showed their favourite as­sets on so­cial me­dia.
