- Earlier this week, in honor of her 46th birthday, comedian and author Chelsea Handler (opens in new tab) shared a video of herself skiing in the (almost) nude.
- Handler penned a heartfelt message about her birthday and how much America and Canada mean to her to go along with the video, which was set to "One More Time" by Daft Punk (opens in new tab).
- "It’s important to stay hydrated as well as relaxed, and it’s also important to celebrate your body no matter what age or size. This is 46 (with some peptides) and as I transition into a mountain woman I want to give a big shout out to the two countries I have the strongest ties to," Handler wrote. "America could learn a lot from Canada and Canada has learned a lot from America, and I’m learning that no matter what country I’m in, I like to take my clothes off and smile."
Chelsea Handler (opens in new tab) is celebrating 46 in a very (and very literally) cool way. The comedian and best-selling author turned 46 earlier this week and to celebrate, she took to the slopes. And she took to those slopes naked. Or, at least, mostly naked (she did wear a thong and two flag pasties...and ski boots, of course).
On Thursday, Handler shared a birthday video of herself skiing in barely more than her birthday suit, set to "One More Time" by Daft Punk (opens in new tab). Remember those flag pasties we talked about before? There's an American flag pastie on one nipple and a Canadian flag pastie on the other. In Handler's helmet, there are two more flags—still American and Canadian, but bigger, and flowing in the wind, this time. The flags are important to Handler and she explained the meaning in the caption of the video.

In addition to freeing, incredible acts of nudity, Handler (opens in new tab) also likes to celebrate the anniversary of her time on this planet by giving back to her fellow humans on said planet. At the end of her birthday post, Handler called on fans to donate to Texan relief through Can'd Aid (opens in new tab), if they're able to.
"If you can afford to make a donation of any amount (even $10) in honor of my bday, I urge you to contribute to @candaid (opens in new tab) and help deliver clean drinking water to Texans in need, more info in my stories," she wrote. "Giving is living. 😎 "
Happy birthday to Chelsea Handler, and thank you for this masterclass in how to celebrate a birthday right.
