Emmanuelle Beart, a French actress, was on the beach three years ago to do a photo shoot for Elle, when she impulsively decided to go for a swim.

As you know, the French aren’t real big on constricting clothing while sunbathing, so she stripped it all off and jumped in. The photographer, who happened to be a friend, asked Emmanuelle if she wouldn’t mind if she kept the camera rolling for a few more shots while she was in the water. The next thing you know, her nudes are responsible for the greeatest selling edition of Elle of all time.

“We’d just arrived for a beauty shoot, it was 5am and I desperately needed a swim. The photographer was a friend, and she asked if I’d mind if she took a few photos. When I saw them, it was me who suggested they use those. It was a riposte to all those skinny, semi-anorexic adolescents that women’s magazines inflict on us; it was to say, ‘Look, I’m 40, this is my body, this is my plenitude, these are my curves, I like them and I’m proud of them.’ It’s true, I feel better in my body now than when I was 20. Why not?”

So now you’re obviously wanting to see all the pics, and the truth is I don’t have them. I’ve never seen them. Sorry to burst your bubble. All I have is her cover shot, which you see above.

The point of this post is to point out that this chick has an insane body. Not just for someone her age, but any age. The lesson is that you don’t have to be a waif to be hot.

I like thin girls, but I don’t think there’s any man with half a brain that wouldn’t be extremely attracted to this woman.

    Could the real Emmanuelle Beart stand up please- “Riposte to all those skinny adolescents”? The woman’s self delusory and vain.
    It’s common knowledge that she’s had silicon (or maybe Gortex, they look tough enough) injected in her now tubular lips and she’s certainly had breast augmentation; look at early film/photos compared to late. Flesh, even on top film actresses, doesn’t remin gravity defying for 43 years without help.
    Then take a look at the actual real copy of the magazine; the image has been photoshopped to death on the waist and hips-no one has a hip/waist ratio like that when they weigh a scant 50 kg (that’s just short of 110 lbs or 7stone 12) as stated in the magazine.
    As for the disingenuous “they just caught me bathing” line,forget it. No image for a magazine of this circulation would ever be left to chance. Sorry to burst the bubble but behind that lens was a team of make-up artists and stylists, don’t all grown ups know this yet?
    Sure every woman would like to have a body like this fantasy, but it’s just as misleading as the supermodel images, but kind of worse for her and Elle pretending it’s all au naturel.Fine as fantasy, but let’s not peddle the fiction as fact.
