From Ulrika Jonsson to Emma Watson – the stars that have gone naked for charity

Celebrities supporting important causes is a bonus for any charity organisation, however, sometimes drastic tactics are needed in order to get the message across.

To highlight a prominent subject, some celebs decide to strip down completely naked to raise more awareness and, to be honest, it often does the trick.

With Ulrika Jonsson recently hitting headlines for her compeltely naked pose for male mental health charity Strong Men, Daily Star have taken a look at other celebs who once took a similar approach.

And trust us when we say, there have definitely been a few celebs who have bravely gone starkers for a charitable cause.

Ulrika Jonsson

This week former presenter Ulrika Jonsson stripped down to raise awareness for a mental health charity Strong Men.

Wearing only a pair of wellington boots and a flower in her hair, Ulrika flaunted her toned, slim physique while holding onto a wheelbarrow.

To cover her modesty, the star perched her right leg up slightly and used her right arm to cover her chest.

The mother-of-four bravely posted her nude picture to Instagram and captioned the photo: "To mark us becoming 150k strong on this page, I’m baring myself for @strongmenorguk.

"Text STRONG to 70085 to donate £5 to help men cope with bereavement; open up and talk about grief.

"It’s never unmanly to talk."

She then nominated a few of her pals to also take off their clothes for the charity including former Olympian James Cracknell.

Cara Delevingne

  • Model Cara Delevingne opens up on her vagina for body-positive art piece

Last month, British model and actress Cara Delevingne posed naked for a non-fungible token that she later auctioned for charity.

The proceeds made from the digital art display went to Cara Delevingne Foundation, which supports women's rights, the LGBTQ community, mental health and the environment.

The NFT (non-fungible token) was a short video which showed the model naked while on the beach.

In the clip, Cara also spoke openly about her body including her vagina.

The star said: "My first word was mine. To me, that means something that is most mine – my vagina.

"My vagina – I own it. It's mine and no one else's. I choose what I do with it. And no one can take that away from me."

Greg James

Radio 1's breakfast presenter Greg James also took the plunge and went completely naked for charity.

Back in 2013, the radio host stripped down for BBC's Comic Relief and posed nude at the famous Zambezi River in Zambia.

Appearing quite awkward in the photo, Greg clutched onto his manhood as he emerged from the water.

The presenter promised his fans that he would go for a naked swim in the river if they managed to raise £50,000 for The BT Red Nose Challenge: Hell and High Water.

To Greg's surprise his supporters did hit his target which meant Greg had to do the challenge.

Once finished, the breakfast host tweeted: "Great work @BBCR1 listeners. Mr @gregjames goes naked in the #zambezi.* *warning, may contain butts."

Emma Watson

Harry Potter actress Emma Watson went completely nude in 2013 to support sustainability charity Global Green USA.

Posing for the saucy photo, Emma can be seen with her hair completely wet as she placed a flower in her mouth.

The star then promoted the book that her nude photos would be included in and tweeted a picture to her fans on Instagram.

Taking to Twitter, Emma said: "My friend is supporting GlobalGreenUSA with his book Natural Beauty. It's out now."

Khloe Kardashian

Reality star Khloe Kardashian usually isn't shy to showcase some skin to her fans, but in 2008 the mother-of-one opted to pose naked for animal rights charity PETA.

In the picture, the brunette babe wore her locks big and untamed as she used one of her hands to cover her boobs.

Her other arm also slightly covered her perky bottom however it can still be seen in the photo.

The message on the photo read: "Animals killed for their fur are electrocuted, drowned, beaten, and often skinned alive.

"Be comfortable in your own skin. Let animals keep theirs."

In 2012, Khloe's sister Kim Kardashian was flour bombed by a PETA protestor at an event. The unexpected attack took place because Kim had previously worn fur.

Not long after Khloe parted ways with the PETA.

Wendy Williams

Outspoken talk show host Wendy Williams also took a similar stance to Khloe Kardashian and went starkers for animal rights charity PETA.

Wendy can be seen laying down completely naked for the shoot as she gazed seductively down the camera lens.

The campaign, that was plastered around Time Square in New York, had a message that read: "I'd rather go naked than wear fur."

The presenter said: "There is a sexy way to suggest to people to rethink the fur."

Pamela Anderson

The campaign highlighted how meat and dairy farms drain fresh water reserves.

In the photo, Pamela's leg is perched on the bath tub as she covers her modesty with a towel.

The message on the advertisement read: "Meat and dairy farms drain a third of the world's fresh water.
