'Boardwalk Empire' star Paz de la Huerta is not just any Playboy model. She says for her, posing nude is art form.

“I feel that when people hire me they know it’s going to be a collaboration and that they hire me for what I give on all sorts of levels, from my movement to the emotion I bring to the project, the passion, all of it," she tells Playboy in its January/February double issue, on sale Dec. 18.

De la Huerta, 28, was photographed for the men's magazine by Mario Sorrenti, for whom she says she has posed before.

“I did my first nude shoot with Mario when I was 17. He made me feel beautiful, and I really feel it was on that shoot that I overcame my fear of being naked," she said. "Mario is such an artist. He has taken photographs of me in which my body looks like a sculpture.”

De la Huerta, who plays Steve Buscemi’s crazy girlfriend on the HBO hit, says she and Sorenti were trying to go natural with her au naturale shoot.

"We did the photos with no makeup, and we both wanted them to have a very natural feeling," she said. "It was more about bringing out a part of myself that has not really been shown to the public.”

And its a side of her she says she's quite comfortable with.

"I celebrate nudity every day," she says. "It’s our first wardrobe."

This is true.
