“Harry Potter” actress Miriam Margolyes, 82, revealed it all in a nude cover shoot for British Vogue magazine’s Honor Issue.
Margolyes posed for a few shots, including sitting at a table wearing nothing but a pearl necklace and pearl stud earrings while pieces of orange and walnut cake on the table covered her breasts.
The “Age of Innocence” actress also changed into more fully clothed looks for a photo shoot where various clothes and accessories were thrown around a white room.
Margolyes, who plays Professor Pomona Sprout in the Wizarding World movies, shared a more candid perspective, although she admitted she “hated it”.[s] my body.”
“I hate big tits [and I have] a saggy belly, slightly bent legs. I’m not excited about it. But you are just doing your best. You should. “You’re doing your best,” he said.
The “Blackadder” actress, who came out as a lesbian in 1966, was one of three Pride Issue cover stars for British Vogue along with singers Janelle Monáe and Rina Sawayama.
“I’ve never been ashamed of being gay or anything else really,” he said in the story released Tuesday. “I knew it wasn’t a crime because it was me. I can’t be guilty.”
Margolyes admitted she struggled with her family’s backlash as being a lesbian was still a social taboo at the time.
“I hurt them and I don’t want to hurt people,” he said.
The “Mrs. Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” star met her current partner, Heather, on the set of a BBC radio series, with Margolyes, who has lived in London for 54 years, and her partner in Amsterdam.
“We were able to lead our lives without diminishing them,” he said. “I didn’t want him to have to give up anything. And I didn’t want to give up anything. I wanted my cake and I wanted to eat it too. And it’s worked so far.

Margolyes rose to fame as Professor Sprout in the popular JK Rowling series, admitting that she “didn’t matter to them as much as to me”.
“For me, ‘Harry Potter’ was not important. “I was very happy to get the part and enjoyed being in the role and meeting all the people, but this is not Charles Dickens.”
While she doesn’t see this as one of her more important roles, she still finds it rewarding for her fanbase.
“People come up to me and say ‘I love you’ and want to hug me. And that is dazzling,” he continued.
Margolyes recalled that one outlet had called it a “national trinket” before, and said, “I’d love to be a national treasure, but I don’t know if I really am.”
