Keri Russell swung by an Apple store in NYC yesterday after spending her morning doing interviews to promote her new show Running Wilde, which premieres tonight despite some reservations from Buzz. She was decked out in a blazer and jeans for her morning of press, looking considerably more covered up than in her recent racy spread for Esquire. One appearance on her AM schedule was at Access Hollywood Live, and she opened up about the nearly nude photo shoot with host Billy Bush. Keri said:
- Joking about her Esquire shoot: “I just like to be naked as much as possible, at all times."
- On her husband Shane's knowledge of the photos: "Honestly, my husband hasn’t heard about these photos yet. I’m sure he will. Someone will e-mail him about them or something. And then I’m just going to cook really great dinners for a week."
- On celebrating Shane's birthday on Sunday: "It was his birthday last night. We had a party… [The Esquire clothes is] what I wore to the party. Those were my clothes. That’s how I normally look, obviously."
- On why she posed for the photos: "I have a feeling, a slight suspicion, it has less to do with proving [she can play a femme fatale] and more to do with FOX saying, ‘Please watch our show.'"
