Model-turned-actress Lauren Hutton has agreed to pose nude for the cover of US magazine Big, at the age of 61.

Hutton, whose successful catwalk career heralded the birth of the 'supermodel' in the 1970s, appeared nude on the big screen in 1970 film LITTLE FAUSS AND BIG HALSY, and had to ask her goddaughters' advice before deciding to bare all again over 30 years later.

She says, "They said 'You're kidding? Go, granny, go!' So I did."

Big's 58th issue is due out in November and promises to contain every aspect of Hutton's life and career including: "Her homeland, her family album, her travel, her private life, her romance, her adventures, her favourite things, unseen RICHARD AVEDON images, her movie, her shot now: beauty, fashion and nude."
