Laverne Cox‘s makeup free picture and wise words are creating buzz on the Internet. Last week, actress and activist Laverne Cox took some much-needed vacation.

Cox shared a sexy photo of herself in a sheer/black bathing suit that exposed a lot of underboob. A closer look at the picture revealed that the star was completely makeup-free.

Laverne Cox showed her perfectly tanned skin, well-groomed eyebrows and lovely lips, (her natural lips look way prettier than the thick lipstick a la Kylie Jenner that she wears on the red carpet).

Cox used the caption to share some beautiful words of wisdom with her followers and said that it was her birthday. Cox stated:

“Finally a few days to relax. I feel so privileged to be able to do work that I love and very privileged to be able to take time off occasionally,” Laverne Cox captioned the sexy selfie. “I take none of it lightly. Always good to have days with no makeup to let my skin [breathe]. #washfacenobase #TransIsBeautiful.”

The Grand Street actress, who has always kept her age a secret, posted a full-body shot and explained that she never liked her birthday. However, this year, she feels good in her skin and feels loved and is ready to celebrate. She wrote:

“about chillaxing, reflecting and basking in gratitude for the abundance from the universe, from my God. I feel so blessed today. Thanks to everyone for all the shout outs on this day I have come to believe is special. I never used to celebrate my bday. So happy I can celebrate in a peaceful, spiritual way today. #washfacenobase #TransIsBeautiful #birthdaysuit #FeelingMyself.”

Cox, who is the first openly transgender person to appear on the cover of Time Magazine, recently shared her thoughts on Bruce Jenner, who is transitioning to a woman named Kaitlyn. She explained:

“I think it’s always powerful when another transgender person comes forward and speaks the truth of their experience authentically and lives visibly authentically. Those stories have to be treated with respect, and nuance.”

Cox’s hit show Orange Is the New Black Season 3 will debut on June 12 via Netflix.

      Cox (the irony of her name), has been more private about her transitioning than Bruce/Caitlyne and I find that wise of her. Keep somethings private Miss Jenner.
