The ‘Private Practice’ star said stripping down for the cover of the March issue was totally her idea — find out why she wanted to bare all!

At 44 years old, Kate Walsh is in fantastic shape — and the star clearly wanted to flaunt her figure! On the March issue of Shape magazine, Kate appears totally nude, wearing only a smile — and she said stripping down didn’t require any coaxing at all!

According to Kate, she approached the editors of the mag about the nude cover — and they jumped at the idea! While Shape always wanted to feature a nude cover, they never found a celeb willing to strip down — until now!

“I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that,” Kate told WWD. Is it a midlife crisis? “I do drive a Porsche, so maybe it is.”

What do you think of Kate’s naked cover? Is it a bit too racy for newsstands or do you think it’s fantastic that the star is flaunting her figure?

Oh my god, that has to be the most egregious mistake I’ve ever seen on this site, and considering the site, that’s saying a lot. It’s been almost 24 hours since Krista pointed it out and yet it still hasn’t been corrected. You have a photo SCREAMING Shape Magazine right underneath the title calling it “Self” magazine. “Self” is repeated throughout the article. Do monkeys run this site or just idiots? Harsh of me, maybe, but this is ridiculous. HL obviously doesn’t strive to be taken seriously; see: that Bonnie person. Dumber than a box of hammers, that one.

Regarding Kate’s comments, they kind of scream desperation to me. Posing naked is the easiest way to get press, and the shout-out to her Porsche is tacky. I guess she isn’t a spokesperson for Cadillac, or whoever it was, anymore. I like her and she looks great, but it seems like she’s trying to make the same kind of splash other actresses have gotten posing sort-of naked. I mean, really, it’s not particularly racy and it’s not like you see anything you wouldn’t see in a bikini. In fact, she may be more covered up here.
