Catherine Zeta-Jones has no problem getting naked.

The Oscar-winning actress stripped off for her first ever nude photo shoot for Allure magazine but admits she wasn't daunted by the prospect because she's confident with her body.

The 40-year-old beauty said: "That's when your dancing days and being in theatre pay off. When you're doing a quick change, you don't give a damn who sees you."

While Catherine - who has two children, Dylan, nine, and six-year-old Carys, with husband Michael Douglas - has no problems getting naked she recently admitted it's harder to do now the family live in New York rather than Bermuda.

She said: "In Bermuda, the children were like naked, opening the back door. So was I. Just running out into the garden. It's really hard to do that in Central Park!"

Welsh-born Catherine says the family are used to moving around and admits they would love to sail around the world in a boat.

She added: "I wouldn't be surprised if we do that."
