Los Angeles - Salma Hayek finds it "exciting" posing nude.

The 48-year-old actress recently stripped off for Allure magazine and has admitted she found it liberating because of her age.

She said: "It's important to be free ... and at my age it's exciting to still be able to take a photograph like that."

Discussing the photo, where she uses her hands to protect her modesty, she told E! News: "I thought my hands were bigger. They're big, but not big enough to cover my breasts. They did cover enough but in my head they were covering more."

While the Everly actress looks breathtakingly beautiful on the cover, she previously admitted she used to be "terrified" about turning 50 because she was told she wouldn't have a career past the age of 35.

She said: "In the past, when I tried to imagine what I'd look like and what my life would be like at this age, I was terrified. I imagined myself looking old, but instead I think I still look OK, and I'm fine with my appearance.

"For too many generations, women have suffered from this terrible lie that age 50 is like falling off a cliff. Women have believed for so long we'd act and feel as if we were finished, and we surrendered to that myth."

Meanwhile the gorgeous 48-year-old actress insisted that, unlike many other Hollywood stars, she makes sure fats are part of her diet.

She told ExtraTV: "I embrace fat, the good fat, this is very important and I make a bone broth that you can look up on the internet, it's very good for all your health and it's full of collagen, when you drink it, it's like fat. I think people are afraid of fat, and fat is your friend."

Along with making her own broth, Salma also creates her own face cream, explaining: "The main ingredient, it's the bark of a tree that's used in Mexican hospitals for burn victims so it regenerates the skin."
