Cobie Smulders Details How Posing Topless Helped Her Accept Her Body After Battling Cancer

Cobie Smulders penned an essay for Lenny Letter where she detailed posing topless for Women’s Health magazine back in 2015, and how being asked to do this helped her accept her body and the scars that have come with battling cancer.

“It all made me start thinking about this body that I’m in. And what it has been through. And suddenly this bizarre invitation became an opportunity to share some insight from my experience of being diagnosed with, receiving treatment for, and eventually learning to cure my cancer,” Cobie wrote for the publication.

Cobie opened up about the diagnosis of ovarian cancer at age 25.

“Just before I was diagnosed, I had felt like something was off. My energy was low, I was just so tired all the time, and I felt a constant pressure on my abdomen that I could not explain. I listened to my body and immediately went to my gynecologist. She referred me to an oncologist at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles who is an angel and helped me to put my fears aside and take action,” she continued. “Thankfully, gratefully, cancer did not get the best of me. The best of me now lives on in my two little women, baby girls I was lucky enough to be able to make with my own body. So now that I’m on the other side of this, I feel like it is my duty, even if it means posing topless, to spread awareness. Since my article in Women’s Health came out, I have had so many conversations with women about their own battles with cancer, and it feels so empowering to open up this dialogue and learn from each other.”
