She added with a laugh: 'I'm happy to be in my birthday suit all day.'

The Hollywood star said it is important not to 'take yourself too seriously'.

'I just really wanted to show that it's about having confidence in yourself and having fun and being playful and not taking things that are not serious, so seriously,' she said.

'To just have fun and enjoy yourself and be along the journey and ride with yourself and that's real self-care.'

She also joked that (unsurprisingly) she gained more followers after posting the naked snaps online.

Rosario added that the female body should be celebrated in all its shapes and forms.

The Sin City star is currently promoting the new #SaveUgly campaign of The Wilderness Society.

The environmental campaign highlights 'ugly' creatures that need to be saved. 

'I don't always have good days,' she said. 

'I feel like a lot of Save Ugly that's really important is recognising that the ugly parts of my personality and character, my sad moments, down moments the angry moments, that's worthy of love to.'
