It's actually not typically that big of a news item when a celebrity gets naked these days. It's kind of become standard, not only in the media, but on the TV and movie screen as well. The naked body is still a taboo thing that our society hasn't yet figured out how to deal with.
We all love it, so let's not pretend like we don't and... that is kind of a problem. Kim Kardashian making millions of dollars for getting naked doesn't seem like it really makes all that much sense to me, but who am I to stop her? It's simple supply and demand.
The thing is, though, when celebrities get naked it attracts attention, which has clearly been established. What can be really cool is when a celeb bares all for a cause bigger than just adding to their already immense bank accounts.
Take these 10 celebs for example...
1. Winona Ryder
Winona got naked for the Protect The Skin You're In™ campaign that raised skin cancer awareness.
2. Cindy Crawford
Cindy got naked for PETA's anti-fur campaign.
3. Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson getting naked obviously isn't that big of a thing, but she also did a PETA ad.
4. Christy Turlington
More PETA anti-fur work.
5a. Supermodel Jamelia and 5b. Actress Alicia Silverstone
PETA clearly has serious pull.
6. Dennis Rodman
They even got Dennis Rodman to get in on the action. The controversial athlete is one of the many stars they've managed to snag for various PETA campaigns.
7. Holly Madison
You guessed it, PETA again!
8. Demi Moore
Demi Moore made a feminist statement in this Vanity Fair cover. Clearly, Vanity Fair is no stranger to breaking down historical barriers.
9. The Dixie Chicks
After getting flack for dissing President George W. Bush, these ladies stood up for free speech effectively on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
