Playing Rebecca Romijn Talks Being Naked and Husband Jerry O'Connell's Affinity for Speedos

Rebecca Romijn stopped by ET to chat about her new show Skin Wars and why she's perfectly comfortable being photographed nude in body paint.

Skin Wars season one winner Natalie Fletcher painted Rebecca as a tigress in one of the show's promos, which the 42-year-old admitted went better than she even imagined.

"I was an eager canvas," Rebecca told ET. "I said, 'I want to get painted again!' It only took five hours. It used to take forever. The first time I was ever painted for Sports Illustrated took 12 hours. The first time they did my makeup test for X-Men was 12 hours."

The actress wore body paint and scaly prosthetics to play Mystique in Marvel's X-Men. While the prospect of appearing nude on the big screen might bring sweaty palms to some, Rebecca told ET there was nothing unnerving about it.

"It's a funny thing. When you're painted, you feel completely covered up," Rebecca said. "You can really tell when you see our models and their body language that nobody feels naked, but they are. If nudity is your thing, we're your show."

Rebecca's husband Jerry O'Connell also seems to be fine with showing off his goodies. The actor was caught photobombing a picture of the couple's twin daughters Dolly and Charlie, wearing nothing but a Speedo.

"Perfectly timed, Jerry O.," Rebecca said with a laugh.

Skin Wars, television's first body painting competition show, seeks to find the most skillful body painter in America. The season two winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize.

The new season of Skin Wars premieres Wednesday night at 9/8c on GSN.
