How do you get Chris Anthony to take his clothes off? Tell him it’s “for charity.” The method worked for Vail photographer Jack Affleck, who kept Anthony in the dark about the nude photo shoot. “He just kept on saying it was something ‘special,'” Anthony says. “And I finally found out why.”
A naked Anthony fills one of the 14 spots on this year’s edition of the “Vail Undressed” calendar, a fundraiser for the Vail Valley Charitable Fund (VVCF). The agency has given out over a million dollars in aid over its six-year existence, according to VVCF administrative director Kate Carey, mostly to people with financial difficulties caused by medical emergencies.
For male calendar shoppers who don’t cherish the thought of looking at Anthony’s ass for 30 days, don’t despair-the photo collection has females as well, including the 2001 U.S. women’s rafting team. ($14.95; 970-328-FUND, vvcf.net)
