Taking a beat to strip down for a sultry magazine spread, Minnie Driver posed in Allure's Nude Issue.

After basking in the water in her birthday suit for the Carter Smith-shot spread, the "Good Will Hunting" babe talked about her aging body and posing naked.

Check out Minnie's interview below and for more, head over to Allure!

On posing nude:
"I never could have done this when I was 25—no way. 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."

On her prep for the shoot:
"I juiced significantly. I got a wax. You want to be neat and tidy in front of people you don't know when you're naked, I think—but I'm British."

On previous naked photo shoots:
"Yes, for Karl Lagerfeld. It was a thousand times more intimidating—maybe because it was in Paris, and everyone was aloof."

What body part makes you most self-conscious?
"My boobs do make me a little bit self-conscious, because I had a baby and things really do change. I would rather go bottomless on the beach than topless actually, as it turns out—you'll never see that, of course."
