Actresses Knightley, Johansson pose nude on Vanity Fair cover

Courtesy of Dark Horizons With award season still under way, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley are exchanging ballgowns for birthday suits. Under the artful eye of photographer Annie Leibovitz, the starlets posed nude for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine's yearly Hollywood issue, released yesterday. Fashion superstar Tom Ford also appears on the cover photo, though he stuck with a more traditional suit -- one of black fabric. Ford, the issue's guest art director, said he hadn't planned on becoming part of his own project, but he stepped in when "Wedding Crashers" star Rachel McAdams, 29, backed out. "She did want to do it, and then when she was on the set I think she felt uncomfortable, and I didn't want to make anybody feel uncomfortable" Ford said Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America." Other Hollywood stars weren't difficult to persuade, Ford said. "A lot of women actually, a couple of men, too, wanted to take their clothes off," he said.
