Well, that’s one way to show off your rockin’ hot body! Private Practice star Kate Walsh is the cover girl for the March issue of Shape — and she’s totally naked. Don’t worry, it won’t be relegated to the XXX section, thanks to her strategically placed arms and legs.
“I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that,” she told Women’s Wear Daily of her decision to pose in the buff. The 44-year-old actress joked that she’s having a midlife crisis, but Walsh also dishes on the normal parts of aging and plastic surgery.
“We live in a strange time when getting plastic surgery is as common as dyeing your hair. But in my profession, I need a malleable face. Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments. But if others want to go a step further, it’s their call,” SheKnows’ girl crush said. Instead, her beauty routine consists of a healthy diet and no smoking.
“I’ll admit it, I used to love smoking. But from a health perspective, it’s a no-brainer. I lost my father to lung cancer when I was 22. When I stopped, everyone told me it would be great and that I would feel amazing, but I didn’t. I missed it,” she said. “I wanted to be able to indulge occasionally but I’m not that type. One minute it’s a casual thing to do; the next it’s, ‘I’m addicted!'”
It’s the best time of her life, she told the magazine — and it shows.
“Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that. Is it a mid-life crisis? I do drive a Porsche, so maybe it is!”
Why did Shape choose her for the cover?
“She has an amazing figure. She definitely works hard for it,” said Tara Kraft, editor-in-chief.
We definitely agree, Tara!
