Actress Kate Walsh fully admits that her decision may have been some kind of warped mid-life crisis, but she has no regrets about posing nude on the most recent cover of "Shape" magazine.
"Right now, I feel really healthy, confident and sexy," says the 44-year-old star of the "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off "Private Practice." "I'm enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that. Is it a midlife crisis? I do drive a Porsche, so maybe it is!"
Walsh's arms and legs are strategically posed to keep the cover safe for newsstands, but her healthy physique is very much on display.

"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," says Walsh.
