Community’s Alison Brie Enjoys Hanging Naked from Trees

Alison Brie is best known for her prudish characters on “Mad Men” and “Community”, which is a true testament to her acting prowess. In reality, she’s extremely liberal-minded and a part-time nudist.

While attending the California Institute of the Arts, Brie was thrilled to discover the college’s public nudity policy. Essentially, the school permits it’s students to do anything completely nude on campus, except visit the cafeteria.

“I would use it more for comedy purposes… Every now and then I would just throw on my tennis (tennis shoes) and like, take a jaunt… to exercise my rights,” Brie explained.

“If my roommate was having a bad day and I wanted to make her laugh to feel better, I would sort of pretend I was gonna take a shower and then I would sneak outside and like hang from the tree outside our window like a monkey. A naked monkey.”

Has anyone else out there attended this school? I would love to hear more stories. Please share below or send anecdotes to ashleyb@shalomlife.com.
