Julia Louis-Dreyfus knows how to one-up herself. Sure, she was hilarious as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld, but now she's back 15 years later as an arguably funnier character: Selina Meyer on Veep. Lately, the 53-year-old actress has also been raising the bar in the nudity department. After appearing naked on Rolling Stone last month, she's now simulating sex with a clown for GQ's May issue, out April 29. In the spread, JLD consummates her relationship with the jester, gets pregnant, and then has his clown baby.

It's all very bizarre, but some may also find it fearlessly funny. After decades in the business, Julia isn't taking herself too seriously, and she's showing just how sexy an older actress can be. Still, critics could protest that male comedians aren't asked to strip for their photo shoots. Louis C.K. is on the cover of the same issue, and in his photo shoot, he's practically showing zero skin, covered up in a trench coat and a beanie.
