POLL: Paz Vega Sparks Controversy with Nude Religious Photo

Getty Images

Paz Vega has men all over the world yelling out “Hallelujah!” after some very steamy photos surfaced the web. The 35-year-old actress posed kneeling in prayer to La Virgen de la Encarnación de Gerena in her native Sevilla, Spain, with nothing but a see-through veil on. The pictures (which debuted early this month) were taken for the 2012 calendar of Lambertz, a German-based chocolate company. But not everyone is praising the actress: many citizens in Sevilla are outraged over the less than saintly images taken in front of La Virgen.

The small town of Gerena is especially livid at the actress, calling the photos blasphemous and in bad taste. The Brotherhood of Gerena has yet to make a comment and many are wondering why they even let these pictures be taken in the first place. Vega has defended herself by explaining that these are supposed to be artistic images but some folks are very offended.
