Nineties supermodel Helena Christensen isn't afraid to bare her soul in January's Elle UK, notes Telegraph UK. Christensen told Elle:
"I have no problems with showing my body. I love the female shape. It's crazy -- you can have movie posters with men with machine guns but oh, God forbid you show nipples. That never ceases to amaze me. It's flabbergasting. So I have no problems with it. But I'm Danish. Everyone's naked on the beaches."
However, Christensen still keeps in mind her family values:
"I wanted the nudity to be in that normal, subtle way because my grandmother is still alive and I want to keep her for another 15 years. I don't want her to get a shock."
Christensen, age 40, owns an antiques shop in Manhattan, and works as a photographer and as an advocate for breast cancer prevention.
