Look Ma, No Makeup! (PHOTOS)

From Jessica Chastain to Matthew McConaughey, the stars go au naturel for W magazine.


For this group of talented stars, natural is best.

In celebration of the likes of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman, W Magazine teamed up with famed photographer Juergen Teller for a feature that screams, “No makeup? No problem.”

“I never get recognized on the street. I’m lucky that way,” Watts, who currently stars in The Impossible, told the publication. “People see me as the dolled-up movie-star type on the red carpet, but in real life, I don’t look anything like that.”

In fact, many of the stars in the feature, titled “Best Performances,” look even better sans makeup.

Some notable male actors -- including Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey-- are also featured in the photo spread.

The interviews, executed by Lynn Hirschberg, also feature candid anecdotes from some of the industry’s most private individuals.

Cruise, who starred in 2012’s action flick Jack Reacher, took a trip down memory lane.

“I was 19 when I made Taps, and my character loved weapons . . . this was my first experience with stunts -- and an expert marksman was aiming at me."

“I didn’t want to look like I was dumb, but between takes I pulled the guy aside and said, ‘Have you done this before? You’re not going to shoot me, are you?’ I was terrified that my first big part would be my last.”

Check out the gallery, above, for some of the best photos from W Magazine’s make-up free album. Then tell us: who do you think looks best without make-up?
