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.”
