She has allegedly carried out an affair with French President Francois Hollande behind closed doors, but it seems that actress Juliet Gayet is no shrinking violet.
As these pictures reveal, the 41-year-old has posed in topless photo shoots and bared all for the cameras in a string of racy movies.
The revelation comes after French magazine Closer said today that Gayet has been having an affair with the 59-year-old president, backing its claim with photographs after months of swirling rumours.

Juliet Gayet, the woman Closer has said is having an affair with President Francoise Hollande, has appeared nude in several of her films
Full-frontal: She appeared naked twice in 2004 film Clara Et Moi in which she seduced a young French businessman
Gayet first appeared nude twice in 2004 film Clara Et Moi, in which she plays Clara, the love interest for main character Antoine, with the pair sharing several passionate scenes.
Then in 2010 the actress went full-frontal for another sex scene in Sans Laisser De Traces, a film about an aspiring businessman trying to hide the secret of his success.
Black and white photographs have also emerged of Gayet in a topless photoshoot in 1998.
Closer's Friday edition carried a seven-page report on the alleged infidelity under the headline 'Francois Hollande and Julie Gayet - the president's secret love'.
The weekly tabloid's actions earned a rapid rebuke from the president, who said he was considering legal action over what he called an 'attack' on his right to privacy.

And this afternoon Closer's editor admitted it would remove the report of the alleged affair from its website after a request from the actress.
'Julie Gayet's lawyer contacted us to request we remove from the website all mention of this relationship,' Laurence Pieau, editor of Closer, said adding the information would likely be taken off the site on Friday evening.
In the magazine report Closer, echoing reports published on various websites in recent days, said Hollande routinely drives through Paris on his scooter to spend the night with his 41-year-old mistress.
'Around New Year's Day, a helmeted head of state joined the actress at her apartment, where he has got into the habit of spending the night,' Closer wrote on its website.
Speaking in a personal capacity, Hollande condemned the report as an 'attack on the right to privacy,' to which he 'like every other citizen has a right'.

Whispers: Rumours of the relationship between Mr Hollande and Ms Gayet (pictured) first surfaced last year, but were initially denied by both parties
The president, in a statement released exclusively to AFP, said he was 'looking into possible action, including legal action,' against the weekly magazine.
Respected news weekly L'Express had last month reported that the presidential palace's security services were increasingly concerned by Hollande's frequent 'escapades'.
Closer said the pictures raised security concerns by showing that the head of state is accompanied by only one bodyguard when he treks halfway across Paris to Gayet's flat.
The bodyguard 'even brings the croissants', Closer said.
Hollande lives with his partner Valerie Trierweiler, a journalist for whom he left fellow Socialist politician Segolene Royal, the mother of his four children.

Gayet, who appeared in one of Hollande's 2012 election commercials, filed a complaint in March over rumours of the affair which she said were a breach of privacy.
Anger: Mr Hollande's long-term partner Valerie Trierweiler was said to be 'incensed and humiliated' by the claims
Gayet, a mother of two, is an established television and cinema character actress who has appeared in more than 50 films.
She had a leading part in 'Quai d'Orsay', a 2013 satirical film centred on the French foreign ministry. Her filmography also includes the titles 'Shall We Kiss?' and 'My Best Friend'.
In December, French actor Stephane Guillon made repeated innuendos on the subject during a talk show where he and Gayet were invited to promote a film in which they co-star.
She appeared a little uneasy but laughed with him when he said Hollande had been visiting the film set and quipped that Trierweiler was less enthusiastic about the film than Hollande.
If confirmed, Hollande's relationship with Gayet would perpetuate a long French tradition of philandering presidents and senior politicians.
Former president Jacques Chirac is believed to have had many extra-marital conquests, as did his predecessor Francois Mitterrand, who even had a daughter born to a mistress.
Valery Giscard d'Estaing was also described as an incorrigible womaniser. He hinted in a recent book at an affair with Princess Diana.
France's media is subject to strict laws on privacy, and has in the past drawn a veil over rumours about the personal lives of the country's leaders.
However, the French are known for being tolerant of their leaders' infidelities, which have in the past proved to have little or no negative impact on popularity ratings.
A survey released on Thursday - before the latest allegations - showed that only 23 percent had a positive opinion of Hollande's performance as president.

It was French Closer magazine which in 2012 ran embarrassing snaps of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless by a swimming pool in Provence.
Their appearance prompted Prince William and his wife to take action for an invasion of privacy through the French courts.
A number of defendants, including the publisher and editor of Closer, have since been charged and face fines.
Neither Mr Hollande nor Ms Gayet were immediately available for comment about the Closer pictures, or their relationship. An Elysee Palace spokesman also said there would be no initial comment.
