“I did my first nude shoot with Mario when I was 17. He made me feel beautiful, and I really feel it was on that shoot that I overcame my fear of being naked,” she tells the magazine.

“Mario is such an artist. He has taken photographs of me in which my body looks like a sculpture”

In fact, De La Huerta says that posing, for her, is an art form, like all of her work.

“I feel that when people hire me they know it’s going to be a collaboration, and that they hire me for what I give on all sorts of levels, from my movement, to the emotion I bring to the project, the passion, all of it,” she tells the men’s magazine.
