The 35-year-old actress opined as such in an interview with E! News over the weekend. Holmes surprised fans by posing shirtless for Glamour's August issue, but she said she has gone topless before and would be comfortable doing it again.
"I have done it before when I was young, the right time to do it," she said of her breast-baring appearance in The Gift (2000). "But if the part called for it, sure I'd do it again. I think people need to embrace themselves, their creativity and their bodies."
The magazine spread included a picture of the actress in nothing but jeans, and she mentioned the inspiration for the shoot "was a lot of Lauren Hutton and the great photos from the '70s -- jeans and Americana."
"It felt right," she declared of the photos. "It wasn't about sexy. It was about being a woman ... Sometimes we're topless."
