Reign’s Caitlin Stasey Goes Nude on New Website and Empowers Women
When Caitlin Stasey isn’t putting her acting chops to use dazzling us as Kenna on The CW’s hit drama Reign, she’s winning the internet by empowering women in the most NSFW way possible. The 24-year-old Aussie launched a new website, Herself.com, and is celebrating the female form by featuring interviews with every kind of woman — all shapes, sizes, and colors — and showing them stripped down. Like, completely naked.
Since this is her pet project, Caitlin also poses nude on the site and reveals some pretty personal things about herself. One such tidbit is that she’s considered herself “mostly gay ever since I can remember.”
“I know it troubles many people for me to refer to myself as a lesbian considering I have a male partner," Caitlin, who is currently dating Raising Hope star Lucas Neff, writes. "I think they gather that it trivializes the plight of the LGBTQIA community & although that couldn't be further from the truth at this point in my life I'm trying to steer as far from labeling as possible. Compartmentalizing myself only leads to condemnation & contradiction. I'm happier being fluid and I'm happier being honest."
But sexuality is just one of the hard-hitting subjects Caitlin — and the site as a whole — addresses. She also tackles gender equality, sexual health, and reproductive rights, and her own childhood and adolescence. What inspired Caitlin to create the website, though?
"Society very cleverly and insidiously compartmentalizes and pigeonholes women, and we are so often isolated because of it," she told DailyLife.com, explaining why she decided to create the site. "I hope more than anything that women will come toHerself.com and find themselves there, scattered throughout the stories and bodies of others."
