Moore Baffled By Fuss Over Nude Shot

JULIANNE MOORE can't understand why so many people are making such a fuss about a new W magazine photo spread, in which she appears nude - because it was just part of a session with her yoga teacher's husband.

The actress felt comfortable disrobing for celebrity photographer MICHAEL THOMPSON because he's married to her New York yoga guru.

And she cannot understand why people are so shocked by the sight of her in all her glory, lying face down on a sofa.

She says, "Usually, with magazines you do a cover shoot and an article and I said, 'I really don't want to do a story. I have no story. I'm so boring. Everybody knows my story - I'm married. I live in the Village.'

"So I wanted to do something different. They called me back with this idea of three photographers to shoot a narrative of me and it's gonna be 42 pages and it was really fun and different and challenging.

"There was only one nude picture and I was on my stomach. It's not racy at all. If you see it, it's very tame. It's Michael Thompson, who's a wonderful photographer and he's my yoga teacher's husband, so honestly it's very, very tame."
