Lake Bell isn't afraid to show some skin!

The 35-year-old star poses completely topless in the May issue of Esquire, wearing only a pair of sheer back tights.  

In the racy pics, the brunette beauty shows off her toned tummy as she covers up her assets and looks seductively at the camera.


We're not surprised to see the actress/writer/director nab the cover of the magazine's Next Big Thing issue, as her directorial debut, "In A World," (which she also wrote, produced and starred in) has gotten rave reviews.

This isn't the first time that Bell has stripped down for the cover of a magazine!

Last August, she posed completely naked for New York Magazine, except for a few strategically placed faux tattoos designed by her husband, Scott Campbell.


Shortly after the racy cover hit stands, Lake spoke told HitFix.com that she's "not squeamish being nude."

"I've done it in the past, and I really don't care," she explained. "I have a sense of humor about nudity and all that. It's like, Hey, so what, we all get naked. In a more serious way, there is a female empowerment–there is something powering about being nude–and just owning it."

She's certainly owning this cover!
