British actress Naomie Harris is showing a lot of skin in a sexy lingerie for Esquire magazine’s January 2014 issue.

For the shoot, Harris was shot by Andrew Woffinden, while Stephanie Wilson handled styling duties. She posed in a sheer lingerie and heels. At 37-year-old, Harris still has sex appeal.

Inside, she talked about playing Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

“You really feel the weight of responsibility”

What it was like tackling her character?

“I think it’s almost easier to understand Winnie than Nelson, because he does something that is so against human instinct”

You can read the full interview over at Esquire.
