Dern stripped down on a Los Angeles beach Tuesday morning for a little sun and surf fun with her family. The "Enlightened" actress turned heads in a striped bikini top and board shorts -- and may we say, she looks amazing.
Dern, 45, took some time off from what will soon surely be a busy award show season to spend time in the sun with her daughter Jaya and son Ellery.
