Hollywood actresses who posed for Playboy

Since the establishment of Playboy in December 1953, a lot of hot, naked women have graced the pages of this magazine. But nothing gives fans greater pleasure than seeing famous ladies on the cover. Marilyn Monroe was the first celebrity who appeared on the cover of Playboy, but she’s certainly not the last. Here are some other actresses we’ve seen posing for the magazine.

Shannen Doherty








Doherty has appeared several times nude in Playboy magazine. Her first appearance was in December 1993 followed by a spread in March 1994 after she left Beverly Hills: 90201. She posed for the magazine again in December 2003 and has been featured in a 10-page pictorial.

Tia Carrere








Carrere boasts Chinese/Spanish/Filipino heritage, and hails from Hawaii. She is an actress and model who gained wide fame for her role as Cassandra Wong in the films Wayne’s World (in 1992) and Wayne’s World 2 (in 1993). Tia posed nude for the January 2003 issue of Playboy magazine. It was the top selling Playboy of 2003. The photos were re-published in the German December 2006 issue of the magazine.

Lindsay Lohan








Lindsay Lohan paid tribute to Marilyn Monroe on the cover and inside editorial for the January/February 2012 issue of Playboy magazine. Shot by photographer Yu Tsai, Lilo replicated some of Marilyn’s 1953 poses for the magazine and added a few more.

Drew Barrymore








Drew was just 19 when she posed for Playboy, but she’d already lived a rock-star life. And not the good kind of rock-star life—she was going to Studio 54 and doing coke as a pre-teen. She cleaned up her act, though, and today is a bankable star, but in 1995 she was still a wild child.

Winter Zoli








Zoli plays an adult film star in the FX hit Sons of Anarchy, so she says she was prepared for her Playboy shoot. She appears topless on the cover of March 2011 issue, in which she admitted, “It turns out nudity is not a problem for me.”

Tara Reid








Tara Reid posed for Playboy for the January 2010 edition to prove her body isn’t damaged by plastic surgery. The American Pie actress – who was left with a scarred stomach after a liposculpting procedure went wrong – decided to accept the shoot to show off her healed and sexy body. She said in an interview US TV station WPIX: “It wasn’t a good surgery, it happens sometimes. I got it fixed and now I’m okay, and I want people to know that I’m okay. I’ve been okay now for the last five or six years but people only show old pictures which is so unfair and that’s part of the reason why I did the Playboy shoot – to show the world this is me and this is what I look like.”

Sharon Stone








“Very soon, in all theaters, Sharon Stone as the wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Total Recall!” That’s how Playboy presented a 32-year-old American actress in July 1990 to its readers. Although by that time Sharon had more than two dozen roles in films and television series, she was not a star. Only two years later, she played a role in Basic Instinct, which brought her worldwide fame.

Denise Richards








Back in December 2004, Richards was still with Charlie Sheen and she had just given birth to their daughter five months before that. She proved that women can still be unbelievably sexy after childbirth.

Kim Basinger








Kim Basinger had a budding modeling career who hadn’t quite hit her stride as an actress when she posed nude in Playboy in 1983, in conjunction with her role in the James Bond series, Never Say Never Again.

Goldie Hawn








The start of Goldie Hawn’s career and an Academy Award Winning performance for her role in Cactus Flower, launched her into an 80s movie star. Successful movies, including Private Benjamin, Wildcats and Overboard made her a household name. Goldie posed for the cover of Playboy in 1985 and is still to date one of the top selling issues.
