Playboy Magazine Says Good-bye: Pamela Anderson Poses For Magazine’s Last Cover

Pamela Anderson’s next Playboy cover will also be her last — and it will also be the publication’s final nude issue as well. According to a press release from the publication, 48-year-old Anderson will be the final cover girl for Playboy’s last nude issue.

It can be remembered that the magazine’s executives previously announced in October that nudity would cease to exist on its pages by March 2016.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight — who initially released the story — Anderson said, “I got a call from [Hugh Hefner’s] attorney, who said, ‘We don’t want anybody else. There’s nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?”

Anderson was shot by renowned fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth for the special January/February 2016 double issue, which hits stands on December 11. The former Baywatch actress has appeared in Playboy more than any other woman in the magazine’s history, with fourteen cover appearances and fifteen pictorials. She was only 22 years old when she shot her first cover.

“The photographer shot me in one roll of film because I was nervous and throwing up,” she divulged to James Franco, fellow actor and contributor to the magazine. “But, then I saw the pictures, and from there it was hard to keep my clothes on! I was painfully shy before, but then it clicked in my head that nobody cares what you look like naked except you. People are more concerned about themselves and their own flaws.”

And yet, after having shot so many covers, Anderson still doesn’t consider herself as pretty.

“I don’t think of myself as beautiful,” she admitted, “but I know I have a deep, sensual drive. People respond to that more than physicality because your spirit never ages. I’m a bit of an exhibitionist, and I like being playful and having fun.”

Following her first Playboy cover, Anderson quickly rose to fame, moving to Los Angeles to foster her modelling career; the move ultimately led her to wearing the iconic red, one-piece swimsuit as the character C.J. Parker on Baywatch.

Of her pre-famous life, she said, “I’ve always been very imaginative, and I thought I would do something creative. I just knew I had to get out of my small town. I never wanted to be in this industry; I didn’t know that option existed for me. It wasn’t something I pursued. But I guess I’ve done pretty well for myself just going with the flow.”
