12 Female Celebs Who Were Bashed for Taking Their Clothes Off

It was only 25 years ago that a naked and pregnant Demi Moore stepped onto the cover of Vanity Fair and shocked everyone. The photo was deemed so risque that it had to be sold in a brown paper bag along with the likes of Playboy magazines.

Women and men have taken it all off in the name of empowerment, money, to raise their profiles, and as a form of activism, to name a few reasons. It is becoming increasingly less shocking now that there is a long list of celebrities to have bared it all for film, television, tasteful nude shoots or just for Instagram (we’re looking at you, Kim Kardashian). However, if not done under the exact right conditions, a nude photo can quite easily encounter a lot of backlash from the public - fans, The American Family association, moms, Instagram and even other celebrities - both men and women alike. The reasons for such objections are many, including being too young, too old, too "fat" or too risque. The following celebrities have taken it all off but have taken a lot of heat for doing so.

12 Amy Schumer


11 Madonna


10 Rihanna


9 Miranda Kerr


8 Alyssa Milano

7 Kendall Jenner

6 Miley Cyrus

5 Lena Dunham

4 Britney Spears


3 Demi Moore

2 Yoko Ono (and John Lennon)


1 Kim Kardashian


Kim Kardashian regularly sets out to “break the Internet” via naked selfies, naked photo shoots (a la Paper Magazine), etc. Her most recent foray into posing nude was via her Instagram account, where she posted a selfie of herself in front of the mirror, which followed with a lot of other celebrities mockingly following suit (or, perhaps, lack thereof). This included the likes of Bette Midler and Sharon Osbourne (who Kim proceeded to snark at via Twitter). The photo garnered a lot of outrage, including Piers Morgan. He wrote: “You’ve still got a great body Kim, but if you’re really so successful why do you still feel the need to pose nude at 35?” He wrote a piece for Mail Online where he interestingly commented on the fact that she “ruthlessly exploited every crevice of her body in a way so spectacularly successful that it’s turned her into a multimillionaire.” Nevertheless, Kim defended herself on her website, writing that: “It’s 2016. The body-shaming and the slut-shaming - it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality.” She said that she is “empowered by her body” and “empowered by showing the world [her] flaws.”
