Kate Walsh leaves very little to the imagination with her Shape magazine March cover photo. The 44-year-old actress posed nude for the cover, with her bended legs and arms strategically placed.

The Private Practice star dished about body image in Hollywood and made it evidently clear that hers is sturdily intact.

Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy, Kate Walsh said about her decision to pose naked for the cover. I'm enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that. Is it a mid-life crisis? I do drive a Porsche, so maybe it is!

Walsh talked about the pressure to undergo plastic surgery in Tinseltown. We live in a strange time when getting plastic surgery is as common as dyeing your hair, the 44-year-old said. But in my profession, I need a malleable face. Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments.

Adding, But if others want to go a step further, it's their call.

Kate Walsh did spill to Shape magazine one particular form of tweaking she does indulge in - hair color. Walsh, whose hair is dyed a deep auburn, is actually a natural blonde.

I felt like an imposter before, said Kate about being a blonde. I'm stronger and sassier as a redhead. It's much more me.

Kate Walsh's feature in Shape magazine will be available on newsstands Feb. 27.
