She made a few hearts skip a beat when she peeled off her top for Antonio Banderas in Zorro.
But Catherine Zeta-Jones has largely frustrated her army of male fans by keeping a pretty modest profile in her acting roles.
However, she's no prude, as she proved by stripping off and sprawling across a bed for a racy photoshoot for an American women's magazine, Allure.
CZJ says in the accompanying interview that she's proud of her body at the age of 40 - and always has been.
Mrs Michael Douglas, currently starring in Broadway show A Little Night Music in New York, was happy to drop the robe for the nude section of the shoot and says nudity is not an issue for her.
'When you're doing a quick change, you don't give a s*** who sees you.'
However, while Zeta-Jones may be no shrinking violet, she revealed in an interview earlier this year how she is having to cover up more since moving to New York.
The Welsh actress told U.S. chatshow host David Letterman that she has had to stop running around her garden naked after moving from the privacy of Bermuda to bustling New York.
But these days her al fresco fun has ended since the family moved to the Big Apple last year.
In the interview with Allure she also revealed her plans for the future with her family, saying she would love to live on a boat and sail around the world. 'I wouldn't be surprised if [we do] that.'
