Jenny McCarthy to bare boobies in Playboy for autism

Sexy actress and model Jenny McCarthy started her career by stripping down for Playboy. Now, she’s returning to where it all started with a new spread in the men’s mag. Why now?

Jenny McCarthy is posing for Playboy again

How much are Jenny McCarthy’s bare breasts worth to her? Well, she posed for Playboy back in 1993 for a cool $20K, but last year the Playmate-turned-actress told Access Hollywood that she’d do it for $2 million toward autism research.

Hugh Hefner must have ponied up the cash, because the 39-year-old single mother is set to take it all off for the July/August double issue of the men’s monthly, a rep for the magazine confirmed. The new Love in the Wild host joked earlier this week that she’s dying to take her clothes off on camera again.

“All I wanted to do (when she began in the industry) was work with my clothes on, and now I just hope to get them off!” McCarthy said jokingly to E! News. However, she has one worry about posing: her breasts!

“But I feel like, you know, the puppies have gone south and left and right,” she joked to Access Hollywood in 2011. “I’d have to, like, scoop them!”

Don’t worry, Jenny: There’s Photoshop for that now.

The idea of returning to the magazine that made her famous has been on her mind for a while now.

“I would be so flattered if they asked me. It’s probably not going to happen but I think I want to do it again,” she said in a 2009 interview. “I would absolutely pose for Playboy.”

It’s not like she has to worry about her weight or anything — McCarthy is in the best shape of her life, thanks to her gluten-free lifestyle.

“I’m still on the Weight Watchers kind of thing, so I just kind of remembered and started counting my points again throughout the day,” she said in 2007. “Fruits are zero points, vegetables are zero points, so I make sure I use that to bulk up, and then make sure I have my protein. I usually have my protein at lunch and my carbs at night — I don’t mix protein and carbs.”

Still, she pigs out from time to time.

“I have my once-a-month nachos,” she added to People, “but it’s (got) soy cheese and turkey chili on it, so it’s somewhat safe. But it’s still a big vice for me, because I have a big bowl of it.”
