LATEST: Magazine bosses at over-50s publication AARP have hit back at reports Jamie Lee Curtis was unhappy with her "topless" cover shot for the new issue of the publication, insisting comments the actress made on OPRAH have been misconstrued.
The Perfect star appeared on the U.S. TV show on Monday (07Apr08) and appeared to be shocked by the publicity generated by the magazine cover shot.
Holding up a copy of the issue, the actress said, "Isn't it fascinating that this constitutes being naked. What the 'f' are we talking about? In my world, this is called strapless."
She then went on to discuss her regrets at posing topless in films like Trading Places.
The cover shot features Curtis, poolside, baring the top of her chest upwards.
AARP bosses insist Curtis was topless for the cover shot and she was merely trying to make a point with her "strapless" comment. And they're adamant they didn't promote the cover shot as the actress "being naked or nude," as has been reported.
A spokesman for the magazine says, "We can confirm Jamie Lee Curtis did pose topless for the cover shot but in no way did AARP promote it as a naked or nude shot.
"Jamie Lee Curtis was intimately involved in the concept of the magazine photo shoot."
Curtis' publicist, Heidi Schaeffer, adds, "It was important for Jamie Lee Curtis to address topics that she felt are relevant and important to her generation... She was very pleased with the way it turned out."
