Her character might have been evil enough to offer up Harry Potter to Voldemort, but in real life Scarlett Byrne (who took over the role of Pansy Parkinson in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) is all about spreading love, not war.

In a new photoshoot for Playboy Magazine entitled "The Feminist Mystique," former #HarryPotter actor Byre has stripped down to show that the nude female form doesn't always have to be overtly sexualized and that being naked can, indeed, be normal. I mean, just ask the Europeans!

Scarlett represents a new wave of nudes for Playboy magazine, which also happens to be run by her boyfriend, Hugh Hefner's son, Cooper Hefner. Cooper previously explained to the press that:

"I'll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake. Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn't a problem. Today we're taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are."

Naturally, many are skeptical about a magazine that made a name for itself by dressing women up as weird fuck bunnies changing its stripes enough to be considered feminist, but let's keep our fingers crossed and wait and see if Scarlett really is the start of something new.

Are you surprised by how much Scarlett Byrne has changed?
