Alicia Silverstone Gardens and Swims in the Nude

It's been reported before, but Alicia Silverstone once again professes her love for gardening and swimming in the nude, this time in Health Magazine.
Q: You told a British publication that you like to garden naked, swim naked …
A: It’s true. It probably started when I was doing my garden the first time. I’d be out there, and it would be scorching hot, so I would take off all of myclothes and garden. And then I would jump in the pool and swim—and I always get in the pool naked, because why would you want to put on a bathing suit? But I’m not a nudist at all. I’m shy. I’ve never done nudity in a film, ever. I don’t want anybody to take a picture of me naked. But in my own home, in my garden, [nudity]’s OK.

Q: Have you always been a naked fan?
A: I think it evolved through my new happiness with my body—and also through cool friends.I used to spend a lot of time with Woody Harrelson, and he’s not afraid to get naked! So around him and his wife and their kids, I just think I got more grounded and was like, This is my body, it’s not some scary thing.
It's OK, Alicia, you can admit that you are a nudist/naturist at heart. It's very good when celebrities fess up to their love for nudity, but at some point one of them needs to declare that he or she is a nudist or naturist and stop denying it based upon some fear of being stigmatized with the label.
