56-year-old Demi Moore poses nude for magazine cover

Demi Moore has posed entirely in the nude, at the age of 56, for the cover of the October issue of Harper's Bazaar.

The actress shows off her striking figure while sitting beside a swimming pool. Wearing nothing more than a sizeable pink hat and a diamond bracelet, Moore exudes natural beauty.

The cover, which the Ghost actress posted to Instagram along with other snaps from the shoot, featured the headlines, "Be Your Best at Every Age" and "Look Better Naked".

Remember this iconic scene from the hit 1990 movie, Ghost?

Women in their fifties showing off their gorgeous figures appears to be something of a trend. Indeed, other stunning actresses such as Salma Hayek and Elizabeth Hurley have also recently stripped off for the cameras.

Accompanying the sultry shots was an interview with Moore by Girls creator and star Lena Dunham. The 56-year-old actress opened up about her parents' struggle with addiction, as well as her own.

Moore spoke candidly about her life ahead of the release of her new memoir Inside Out. She even recounted a very dark story from her youth in which she was forced to revive her own mother, who had overdosed.

"The next thing I remember is using my fingers, the small fingers of a child, to dig the pills my mother had tried to swallow out of her mouth while my father held it open and told me what to do," she recalled. "Something very deep inside me shifted then, and it never shifted back. My childhood was over."

Moore also told the 33-year-old that she stopped using in her twenties and relapsed by the time she reached her forties. It wasn't until she was in her fifties, that Moore managed to overcome many of her issues.

"Part of being sober is, I don’t want to miss a moment of life, of that texture, even if that means being in… some pain," she said.

In any case, this actually isn't the first time the mom-of-three has bared all for a magazine cover. The actress famously posed in the nude for the cover of Vanity Fair in 1991, when she was seven months pregnant with her second child with ex-husband Bruce Willis.

Moore's memoir, Inside Out, will be released on September 24.
