Chelsea Handler poses nude in racy isolation photoshoot

Chelsea Handler has shared a very racy photo of herself in order to promote the books she's been reading this month while isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

The comedian covered herself up with three books as she posed in her bathtub and wrote: "Do you like to have fun in the tub with learning? I do. I will be sharing #GetLitWithChelsea recommendations bi monthly if you care to read some of my picks and keep your brain from turning into a pancake during quarantine."

It comes almost two weeks after the star shared her first book recommendations earlier in the month where she posed similarly with another three books.

She captioned the photo of herself sitting in a chair, with three books artfully covering herself: "Do you like to make reading fun? Are you going out of your mind and have started socially disassociating? That’s when reading comes in handy. Since every day is now #weekendreading - here are three books to read if you want to come out of this quarantine not brain dead."

Unsurprisingly the photos have captured the attention of many. Will and Grace's Debra Messing commented on the snap: "Your body makes me angry. With love."

Hilary Swank added: "Love this," while a fan wrote, "Your body is on point!"

"You should FaceTime me next time you read,” comedian Fortune Feimster joked.

Other fans thanked her for keeping them entertained with one person writing: "I am incredibly thankful for the laughs. They are much needed these days. Keep it honest and real girl!"

It's no secret Chelsea likes baring all, and even posed for Playboy Magazine in 2009.

In an article for Harper's Bazaar, Chelsea wrote that she loves to share pictures of herself and often texts her friends nude images.

“There was never a moment when I was like, ‘I'm going to enter the public conversation on the importance of female nudity.’ I text my friends naked pictures of myself. I ruin group pictures by pulling a boob out. Everyone has seen me naked; good for them. When I go on dates, I’m glad that we’ve gotten that out of the way so they already know what’s coming,” she said.

The comedian went on to say: "I’m not trying to be a role model to kids, because I don’t have any children, but I do think everyone should have a free spirit. I also think that it’s great that after all these years, I’ve finally found a way to utilise my giant jugs."
