Best Actresses in Playboy

These women are some of the most famous women on the planet. They’re known for their roles in movies and TV shows, but that’s not all.

They’re also known for posing in Playboy, dressed in nothing but their own beauty. They’re known for their ability to impress men all over the world with their beauty and talent to adapt to different roles.

Whether we’re talking about the 50’s sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe, the 70’s Farrah Fawcett or the 90’s Pamela Anderson, they all impressed men all over their world with their sex appeal.

Although in our days, it’s a lot easier to pose as sexy, it’s become a lot more difficult to be considered a sex symbol. Nowadays, you have to come up with something new, something that not everyone does.

Posing for Playboy as a nude model would be one thing. This is considered art, by many people in the world. Art that combines sex and passion to result a delight for the sight.

Throughout the years Playboy has attracted a lot of different artists and women, from all over the world. Singers, models, sports idols, it girls and last but not least actresses.

Perhaps the most important category because everyone watches movies, everyone knows them and they all came to love them, one way or another.

Pamela Anderson

Cover Model: 10.1989, 02.1991, 07.1992, 08.1993, 11.1994, 01.1996, 09.1997, 06.1998, 02.1999, 07.2001, 05.2004, 01.2007, 01.2011.

Centerfold Model: 02.1990.

Pictorials: 07.1992, 11.1994, 01.1996, 09.1997, 02.1999, 07.2001, 05.2004, 01.2007, 01.2011.

Pamela Anderson is an actress with both Canadian as well as American citizenship. Although she’s best known as an actress, she also did modeling, producing and writing.

She was first discovered at a football match in Canada, when a live video of her wearing a tight t-shirt was shown on the big video screen. This has led to her first appearance in Playboy’s October issue as the cover girl.

Following that moment, she decided to take matters into her own hands and move to LA to pursue her career as a model. Pamela has posed for Playboy for a whopping number of 11 Cover Photos (1 extra issues with either Pamela or Jenny McCarthy), 9 Pictorials and 1 time as a Centerfold Model.

Pamela Anderson still is the number ONE model in Playboy in terms of numerous appearances.

For her first two appearances in Playboy, she still had natural breasts. After these two photo shoots, she decided to “enhance” her physical appearance.

Pamela did not do only modelling, but she got into acting as well. Her first major role and one of her defining ones was in Baywatch as C.J. Parker which she played from 1992 to 1998:

Next on her list of major roles was that of the main character in V.I.P., the role of being Valery Irons.

She didn’t escape the sex tape controversy either. A sex tape containing Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s honeymoon celebration was stolen from their home in 1995 and made her the talk of the internet:

Then after the initial scandal with the Tommy Lee sex tape, another one was supposed to appear on the internet. One before the marriage with Tommy Lee. A sex tape with a musician Bret Michaels. A cut version of merely 60 seconds made waves on the internet and its frames appeared in the Penthouse magazine:

Many might mistake Bret Michaels in this sex tape with Kid Rock. They look a lot like each other, true, but he’s not in that sex tape. Pamela dated Kid Rock after she was done with both Bret Michaels and Tommy Lee.

Pamela is an Anti-Fur activist as well as a convinced vegetarian and she also attends marathons.

Sharon Stone

Cover Model: 07.1990, 12.1992.

Pictorials: 07.1990.

Sharon Stone, born in 1958, is an American actress and film producer. She started as a fashion model after winning the title of Miss Crawford County.

Her first role in a movie was in a Woody Allen movie, “Stardust Memories” but nothing big. The role in “Total Recall” in 1990 with Arnold Schwarzenegger at her side gave Sharon’s acting career what she so desperately needed, a huge boost.

Here is an interview with Sharon Stone by the Independent where she talks about herself as a bookworm, check it out

She showed off all of her physical training that she did for “Total Recall” by posing nude for Playboy in 1990.

Next on her list was “Basic Instinct” in 1992 where she shot a famous scene of her crossing and uncrossing her legs without wearing any underwear. At that time she claimed she was not aware of how much it was visible and how famous she would get from this.

Visit her IMDB profile where you can find a nice list of the well-known films she was featured in

She was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe Award as the Best Actress for her role in Casino (1995). The movie was directed by Martin Scorsese and Sharon played alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

She did another Playboy shoot in 1992 where she would make the front cover again.

Seems like the famous crossing legs with no panties still stirs up the public. Sharon talked with Conan O’Brien about her random meeting on the streets of Israel with a young boy wearing a t-shirt with the famous legs-crossed scene from Basic Instinct:

Denise Richards

Cover Model: 12.2004

Pictorials: 12.2004

Denise Richards, born in 1971, is also an American actress who was also a model at one point in her life.

Her acting career is quite diverse. From movies: Wild Things, The world is not enough (Bond Girl), Love Actually and Scary Movie 3 to renowned TV series: Melrose Place, Two and a Half Men, Blue Mountain State and several guest appearances in other shows.

Women on the Fence posted a long and enjoyable interview with Denise Richards, check it out if you want to read more about the American model and actress

Denise also had her own show, on E!, called “Denise Richards: It’s Complicated”. A show about her personal life and people close to her, like her two daughters, Sam and Lola. The show ran for two seasons, from 2008 until 2009.

The marriage with Charlie Sheen brought more controversy and fame in her life. They first met in 2000, on the set of Good Advice. They started dating in 2001 and got engaged in the same year. The following year, 2002 was when they got married. They have two daughters, Sam J. and Lola Rose Sheen.

Before giving birth to their second child, in 2005, Denise filed for divorce against Charlie but they patched things up soon. 2006 was the year of their official divorce and even though they broke up in bad terms, time fixes all.

A few years later, Denise and Charlie were both getting along quite well to the point that Charlie asked her to take care of his other two kids. Denise received temporary custody of Charlie’s twin sons with Brooke Mueller, who at that point was having serious drug problems.

The Playboy photos are done five months after she gave birth. December 2004 is the month of the issue and it just shows that there are women out there that can give birth and still have the looks of a goddess.

Lindsay Lohan

Cover Model: 01-02.2012 Double Issue

Pictorials: 01-02.2012 Double Issue

Lindsay Lohan was born in 1986 and started her career as an actress really early in her life.

Her first role was in Another World, a soap opera, at the age of 10. A year later, she appeared in Parent Trap. Seeing how she was so young yet all her movies were hits in the box office, she starred in Freaky Friday (2003), then in Mean Girls (2004).

She already started to be a Role Model for young girls all over the world. Next on her list was Herbie: Fully Loaded, another Disney production and box office success as well.

She did other movies until around the year 2010 when drug issues started to appear. She began to have drug abuse problems and sought counseling in therapy. Her public image suffered a lot from this, she fell down her pedestal of an American Icon for young girls and began to be the model of “how you shouldn’t be”.

The shoot in Playboy was inspired by the first issue of Playboy which featured Marilyn Monroe. The Lohan Jan/Feb 2012 issue was a tribute to Marilyn and done in a similar fashion to pin-up modeling.
