Remember all those rumors about Rachel McAdams not going nude. Well now we know why. This is the latest Hollywood Issue for VF and Tom Ford decided to grace the cover himself since he is the guest editor this month. He was GMA this morning and this is what he said:
Ford, the issueâ€™s guest art director, said he hadnâ€™t planned on becoming part of his own project, but he stepped in when â€œWedding Crashersâ€? star Rachel McAdams, 29, backed out.
â€œShe did want to do it, and then when she was on the set I think she felt uncomfortable, and I didnâ€™t want to make anybody feel uncomfortableâ€? Ford said Tuesday on ABCâ€™s â€œGood Morning America.â€?
Other Hollywood stars werenâ€™t difficult to persuade, Ford said.
â€œA lot of women actually, a couple of men, too, wanted to take their clothes off,â€? he said. â€œThese are such beautiful people, beautiful women, and who doesnâ€™t want to see a bit of them.â€?
Angelina Jolie also got naked for the Hollywood issue, posing in a bathtub. Another shot depicts a fully clothed George Clooney as a director filming a large cast of women wearing skin-tone underwear.
For the cover photo, Knightley, 20, was photographed sitting sideways, with legs and arms carefully placed. The 21-year-old Johansson, draped over Fordâ€™s leg, is somewhat more exposed â€” readers who open the fold-out cover will see her bare buttocks.
Knightley is currently nominated for a best actress Oscar for her performance in â€œPride & Prejudice.â€? Johansson co-starred this year in Woody Allenâ€™s â€œMatch Point.â€?
As always I can't wait to get my hands on this issue. I bet the pics inside with Clooney and gang are amazing.
