Cindy Crawford recently posed nude for Russell James’s new book, Angels.

The actress and model explained that her only regret about posting nude is that she wishes she did it more.

During an interview with Net-a-Porter, Cindy says, “Part of the reason I wanted to do it was that I thought, at what age is being naked not beautiful anymore?”

She continued, “Is there a sell-by date on us? I don’t look the same as I did at 20, 30 or even 40. If we take care of ourselves, why not? Am I frolicking on the beach in a string bikini? No. But there is a place where I want to feel beautiful naked, in my private life, with my husband.

[Russell] was tapping into that real place — not high heels, not a lot of makeup, not coy, just a real woman who doesn’t have clothes on.”

Now questioning why she didn’t pose naked more often, the model who first posed for Hugh Hefner’s Playboy magazine says, “I look back at some of my old Playboy pictures and I think, ‘Why wasn’t I walking around naked all the time? I’m not getting any younger. So I want to celebrate who I am today.”

Cindy has two children, Kaia and Presley, with her husband Rande Gerber — both of which have followed in her footsteps into modelling. Kaia became professionally eligible for runway modelling with Cindy saying, “Kaia had some advantages… She is my daughter and people know that.

But when people say that I bought her a cover of a magazine, I think, if I was going to buy a cover for someone, it would be me. If I could get someone into a fashion show, I would be getting it for myself.

Understandably, Cindy is extremely protective of her children, and she spoke about negative comments her children receive on social media, “I can’t believe how hateful people can be. As much as people put garbage on my Instagram, it doesn’t bother me. But when they do it to my kids I think, grrr.

But you’re not supposed to go after [the haters]. It’s shocking. We’re becoming more immune to it because people just lash out. We have to be so politically correct in one way. If you’re not famous, you can say the most hateful stuff. God forbid you offend the wrong person.”
