Nicole Kidman was revealed as the new cover star for LOVE magazine earlier this month.

The 50-year-old actress appears in a red lace-up swimsuit and cowboy hat on the cover, donning a number of other ‘revealing’ looks for the rest of the Western-themed shoot.

Although she looks incredible, one insider source has said that the Oscar winner is “mortified” by the somewhat raunchy shoot that required Kidman to go braless.

The cover, which shows the outline of the star’s nipples, has reportedly embarrassed Kidman.

“Nicole was devastated when she saw the pics and pretty embarrassed,” a source told New Idea magazine. “She’s pretty conservative at heart and just didn’t think the photos would be as risqué as they turned out.”

The source also said that Kidman believed the shoot “was no way for a married mother of four who’s just turned 50 to be behaving.”

“When she first agreed to do the shoot, she thought it would be a great way to show that she still looks hot and still has what it takes to make it in Hollywood.”

“But now she’s just scared that she’s gone too far.”

In a teaser for the interview, Kidman can be heard joking about the shoot, saying: “I thought about this shoot afterwards. I was like, ‘What was I doing? I lost my mind! How are the shots? Do they look crazy?’”

While many will criticise the actress for appearing like mutton dressed as lamb, we think it’s time to stop bringing down women (especially women of a certain age) for trying to have fun with fashion.

After all, what’s so shocking about a nipple?
