Canadian Nina Dobrev goes topless to support Obamacare

North Stars

Nina Dobrev would rather go naked than pay for healthcare. The 24-year-old "Vampire Diaries" star has shed her clothes to support the United States' Affordable Healthcare Act -- also known as "Obamacare" -- which offers government subsidies to lower health insurance costs for Americans.

In a black-and-white photo posted to her WhoSay account on Thursday, the Canadian actress stands topless, a board covering her chest with the words #GetCovered on it.

"Im Canadian. We have healthcare for all," Dobrev captioned the image, along with a link to help readers obtain healthcare coverage.

"Because w/o it, youre naked," she added.

The link leads to the American government's healthcare page, which has been facing a number of glitches and reportedly went offline this weekend to fix them.

Canadian actress Emily VanCamp also posed with a #GetCovered sign on the same day, though the "Revenge" star opted to keep her clothes on.

Many other female (and male) celebrities called for support of the act last week with the same handmade sign, including Amy Poehler, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde and Lady Gaga.

But, for obvious reasons, it was Dobrev's that really caught the world's attention. The image was retweeted more than 1,200 times.
