Striking a Pose with Jennifer Lopez
November 23, 2005

Thanksgiving is here, which means turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. But no holiday is complete without some candy for the eye, and "Extra" got just that, as we got a sneak peek at the ultra-exclusive Pirelli Calendar featuring jaw-dropping photos of Jennifer Lopez as a vintage bathing beauty.

"I've heard about the Pirelli Calendar for years," Lopez said. "It's been something that has become an artistic expression of many great photographers over the years."

La Lopez even struck a daring pose in bondage leather for the calendar. "They really concentrate on finding a character for you," she explained. "The fact that I get to act, and I get to really put some of who I am and transform into all these different characters and all these different looks is part of the fun for me."

"You know no matter what happens you're going to look great," she continued. "You’re going to look sexy. You’re going to look different than you’ve ever looked."

The calendar also includes Kate Moss showing all sorts of skin and smoking, as well as Gisele Bundchen frolicking in a bikini.

"They get something out of you that a lot of people cannot because they push you to the limit," Bundchen said. "You want to be like, 'I'm going to kill them when I get out of here,’ but you are always so happy with the result."

Thanks to the famous Pirelli pinups, it looks like 2006 is going to be a beautiful year!
