NEW YORK, April 22 (UPI) -- Kristen Bell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Minnie Driver and Nia Long bared all for Allure's annual nude shoot featured in the May issue of the magazine.

The actresses posed in a series of beach-themed photos, for which they used water and sand to cover at least part of their privates.

"This is the first interview I've ever done where I'm not wearing panties. Lucky you," Bell told photographers as she stripped down for the shoot. The Veronica Mars star later revealed that she's the most self-conscious about her "belly skin," and that her "buns" are her favorite part of her body.

Dewan-Tatum, on the other hand, was more impressed with the direction she got during the shoot.

"It's really funny, the direction you get when you're doing this photo shoot. It's like, 'Show more side boob. Oh, can you relax your fingers while you're covering your nipple?'" she said. "And don't show the cooch. These are words I will never hear again."

For Driver, the experience was better now that she's gotten older.

"I never could have done this when I was 25 -- no way," she told the mag. "All I saw then were the flaws. I still see the flaws, but I see what's great more -- and I've got a banging body."

Long, on the contrary, was feeling a little uncomfortable during her shoot.

"Posing nude is probably the most uncomfortable thing ever, and not from a spiritual sense," she explained. "I'm still going naked. I can still take it off -- two babies later. The point is to capture the true essence of beauty in our most comfortable state -- and that is nude."
