Kate Walsh bares it all on the March 2012 cover of Shape, and she admits that it was her idea! The Private Practice star is loving her 40s and wanted to share her happiness with the rest of the world — even if she thinks she's experiencing a mid-life crisis…   


"I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover — especially with Shape, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out," the gorgeous 44-year-old actress tells the magazine

"Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy," Kate explains of deciding to strip down 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!"
Hey, if we looked as amazing as she does at 44, we'd want to show it all off, too!
And Kate reveals that no plastic surgery was needed for her to have this body, but she isn't against people who decide to go under the knife. 
"Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments," she says. "But if others want to go a step further, it's their call."
How amazing does Kate look on the cover?
