'The camera is such an incredible weapon': Jennifer Lopez, Rachel McAdams, and David Beckham star in stunning pictures for photographer Marc Hom's portrait book
- The A-list photographer published a collection of portraits in his book, Profiles
- Nicole Kidman, Alicia Vikander, and Quentin Tarantino appear
- He said for his shoot with Sienna Miller, the actress stopped the shoot to make her nipples hard under her shirt to appear sexier on camera
It's probably a bit intimidating to pose for a photographer who thinks of his camera as a 'weapon' but celebrity picture-taker Marc Hom certainly gets results.
Jennifer Lopez, Rachel McAdams, Sienna Miller, David Beckham, and Johnny Depp all posed for the famous photographer, turning up in pictures in his new portrait book, Profiles.
'The camera is such an incredible weapon. It's like a gun pointed right at your face,' Hom told CNN.
Gorgeous: Photographer Marc Hom published a book of celebrity portraits, including this one of Jennifer Lopez
The Danish-born photographer said he doesn't like 'celebrity' but included many in his book, including David Beckham
There are also images of Rachel McAdams (pictured), Johnny Depp, and Anne Hathaway
Published late last year, the book includes portraits from both editorial assignments Hom went on and his own personal sittings.
'[They] are a reflection on my fascination with the person and their innate beauty and character,' he explained.
But though A-list stars fill the pages, Hom isn't a fan of the world 'celebrity'. He told CNN: 'I hate "celebrity" The word is so negative and loaded. I prefer "personalities of the world."'
Those 'personalities of the world' who appear in his book include Johnny Depp, who poses with frequent collaborator Tim Burton, and Mickey Rourke, who sits in his underwear beside his topless girlfriend, who gazes into a mirror.
He said Sienna Miller stopped her photoshoot to tweak her nipples under her shirt
The book, Profiles, includes images he took on assignment and for personal sittings (including Nicole Kidman and Lars von Trier, pictured)

Also topless — completely nude, in fact — is actress Nicole Galicia, who hangs on director Quentin Tarantino, who is fully clothed.
Hom credits his subjects' willingness to strip down and otherwise bare their souls to the trust they place in him.
'You can't take a great photograph if people don't trust you. If you don't have the common respect for each other, it's like knocking your head on a wall,' he said.
One of his favorites from the book is a whole of actress Sienna Miller, who is seen sitting in a car. He said the image has a 'cinematic feeling', and Sienna herself was a great subject.

He also photographed Mickey Rourke (pictured), Lupita Nyong'o, Robert Redford, Angelina Jolie, Christopher Walken, Brie Larson, Kate Winslet, and Michelle Obama.
This image of Louise Bourgeois in New York City in 1996 is one of his favorites
'She's one of those people who just gave it all she had really. I don't know if I should repeat this, but as she was sitting in the car, she said "Hold on, one second!" She lifted up the shirt and touched her nipples to get them erect, and was like "Okay, I'm ready now!" I thought that was quite funny. It's definitely stuck in my mind!'
In another image, Jennifer Lopez wraps herself in a blanket on the floor. Rachel McAdams looks sexy and undone in a slip dress and leather jacket, while Nicole Kidman hangs out barefoot on the steps of her trailer.
