Maitland Ward isn’t the Rachel McGuire you remember.

Maitland Ward has sure come a long way from her “college days” of playing Rachel McGuire on Disney’s classic Boy Meets World. Who remembers the episode where Rachel gets into a prank war with Cory and Shawn (big mistake) and eventually has a very intimate picture leaked to the entire school?

Back then, Maitland, i.e. Rachel, had an emotional breakdown and was visibly distraught that the public had seen her partially nude. It seems the experience must have been highly liberating, as her recent announcement shows she is very confident to show it all, sans fuzzy blanket.

Maitland made the racy announcement via Twitter.

“I felt ready. It wasn’t like I was saying, ‘Oh I want to do this all along,’ but it was like, ‘I need to do this,” said Maitland in an interview with In Touch.

The now 42-year-old actress will be starring alongside Angela White in the Kayden Kross directed film, Drive. “I never knew there was anything in adults or porn or whatever that was this well done. I read the script and I was like, ‘This is really, really well-written,” said Ward.

While some fans may have mixed opinions on the actress’s career choice, one thing stands clear. Maitland Ward in confident as ever in her skin and she doesn’t give a f@%& what anyone thinks. Her words, not mine.

“I think you have to accept your body and love your body. When I was younger, I was so much more nervous about that. I wasn’t confident, and then finally, I was like, ‘You know what? I take care of myself. I work out.’ Confidence is sexiness.” You said it, Maitland. Good luck with your career, wherever you wish to take it.

And for those Boy Meets World fans who clicked on this article, we got a very little something for you too. Maitland revealed that she was still in touch with Trina McGee, a.k.a. Angela, even though neither of them appeared on the reboot Girl Meets World. Given the entire cast had a great relationship, Maitland is highly open to a reboot of the original, suggesting a movie rather than a new season. We’re all for a Boy Meets World movie, but let’s keep it PG-13.
