Nina Dobrev isn’t known for stripping down on-screen or on the pages of magazines, but on October 3, she went topless on Instagram.

The Vampire Diaries starlet posed in a black-and-white photo with only a cardboard sign that said “#getcovered” across her chest, linking to the Obamacare website that is currently in open enrollment.

“Im Canadian. We have healthcare for all. If you dont have insurance go to http://say.ly/cdi6TN2 and #GetCovered,” she wrote. “Because w/o it, you’re naked.”

It certainly made a bold statement supporting health care reform, potentially inspiring people to sign up. Considering that Nina is Canadian and understands universal health care, she is able to help inform others about the general idea, but not the ins and outs of the new program. She’s not trying to be a spokesperson for Obamacare — she’s just getting the word out.

Like many of her TVD co-stars (including ex Ian Somerhalder), Nina is doing something a little shocking to support a cause, not just to go topless on the internet for fun. Who’s going to forget the hashtag “#getcovered” now?

Regardless, we were a bit shocked to see this show up on our Instagram feed. What do you think of Nina stripping down to support Obamacare? Sound off below!
