In a reflection of how cultures affect attitudes toward nudity, Holt, 42, jumped at the chance to pose nude. “I’m French, so I’m quite comfortable being nude,” says the actress and former model, who stars in Terminator Genisys, out in July.
What’s the secret to posing nude?
“You want to have tension in your body. It helps show the muscles and makes things look nice.”
What part of your body did you want to highlight?
“I’m very long, so we wanted to take advantage of that—my long legs.”
Did exercising for Terminator Genisys change your body?
“Sometimes when you finish a role, you want to undo what just happened. Terminator was very stunty, so I did weight training for my back, but I sort of abandoned that and went back to Pilates.”
