Nicole Kidman dared to bare her backside for a provocative photo-shoot with famed fashion photographer Mario Testino for the September cover of V Magazine.
The topless 45-year-old Australian star bares her gravity-defying rear end in a short black skirt, embellished with a gold belt and nothing else on the cover of the magazine's travel issue, on sale August 30.
"Beautiful, beautiful," an enthusiastic Testino raved to his new muse as he snapped the images at his Manhattan studio, V Magazine reports.
"You are so hot it is beyond! Look at your body! It is incredible!" he gushed.
The movie star revealed more than just her fit figure, admitting that she finds it hard to balance work and family, and doesn’t plan her career too carefully.
"I don’t really make decisions," she said in the magazine, which comes out August 30.
"I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don’t get the chance."
But it seems she’ll be taking a big risk in new film The Paperboy, in which her sex-crazed character urinates on Zac Efron.
Kidman, who has two young children with country singer husband Keith Urban, admitted it's hard to tear herself away from her family for work.
"I just don’t want to miss anything, and I don’t want them to go ‘Where’s my mom?’ So I’m working through that," she told V.
