Pamela Anderson to Cover Playboy’s Last Nude Issue

Pamela Anderson has landed the cover of Playboy’s final nude issue.

The actress/model will grace the front of the magazine for a record 13th time since 1989. This also marks her 15th Playboy pictorial to date.

The publication announced in October that it will no longer showcase naked women, ending a 60-plus-year tradition. Playboy featured Marilyn Monroe on its debut cover in 1953.

“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?'” the former “Baywatch” star told ET.

The 48-year-old mother of two said she was initially hesitant to pose nude again because both of her sons have been teased in the past for her work. But 19-year-old Brandon and 17-year-old Dylan both ended up encouraging her to do the shoot.

“I said, ‘Hef just called, he wants me to do the last cover of Playboy,’ and he goes, ‘Mom you’ve got to do it,'” recalled Anderson. “‘We’re older, we’re not embarrassed anymore of you. You know, we think you’re great.'”

The January/February 2016 edition of Playboy, which includes Anderson’s 12-page pictorial and features an interview conducted by James Franco, hits newsstands on Dec. 11.
