Chelsea Handler ends topless picture campaign

U.S. TV funnywoman Chelsea Handler is ending her pro-nudity campaign on social media amid fears her topless shots were starting to annoy fans.

The Chelsea Lately star has been displaying her chest in a series of saucy snaps on Twitter.com throughout the year (15) to protest against Instagram.com's no-nudity policy, baring her breasts in a number of unusual places, including on the ski slopes and at the Mardi Gras carnival in New Orleans, Louisiana.


However, Chelsea is now bringing her protest to a halt and has vowed to keep covered up in future.


"I'm over the naked selfie thing," she declared during Cosmopolitan's Fun Fearless Life Conference in New York City, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six. "At first it was to make a point and then it was to annoy people, but I'm over it. The boob selfies are done. I've been there, done that... People were getting annoyed with me and sometimes I try to listen to people."


Chelsea insists her campaign had nothing to do with vanity as she wanted to show that nobody is perfect: "I never take myself seriously and when I take off my shirt and tweet a pic of myself I'm not examining how I look. It just happens that I have great boobs that are natural...


"I'm never like, 'Do you think that angle is good?'... None of us are one-dimensional. Sometimes we look great, sometimes we look like s**t...


"You can't just keep looking in the camera trying to be pretty all the time. That's not life, that's not real."
