'Harry Potter' actress Scarlett Byrne poses nude for Playboy
Get ready to ogle a muggle.
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” starlet Scarlett Byrne is baring it all in Playboy’s newest nude issue.
The 26-year-old, who played Pansy Parkinson in the wizarding world, showed off her sexier side on set by exposing her backside wearing nothing but a silk robe draped around her waist.
Byrne, who got engaged to Hugh Hefner’s youngest son Cooper back in 2015, is the first model to make her way onto the pages of the magazine since their decision to incorporate nudity again.
“I'm very proud to be a part of the March/April issue of Playboy. I penned a short essay along with my pictorial titled, 'The Feminist Mystique,'” Byrne announced to her social media page.
“A big thank you to @Playboy, the creative team, and @cooperbhefner for such a unique opportunity. #NakedIsNormal”
Cooper, a film director and the chief creative officer to the family business, took to Twitter to share news of the change this week.
"I'll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake."
Playboy published its first non-nude issue back in March 2016, when Hugh announced the men’s lifestyle publication would be letting go of the “outdated business model” and evolve alongside modern-day gender ideation.
While the publication received criticism for cutting out the naked ladies, their web traffic “quadrupled from four million to 16 million monthly visitors,” as the site became a more suitable-for-work space
