Jenny McCarthy wanted the job, but TOO BAD.
Pamela Anderson graces the cover of Playboy Magazine's last nude issue, marking the end of an era.
"I got a call from [Hugh Hefner's] attorney who said, 'We don't want anybody else," Anderson told Entertainment Tonight. "There's nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?'"
Her son, Brandon, 19, convinced her that it was definitely something worth doing. It was a surprise, considering he and his younger brother, Dylan were teased in the past when mom stripped down.
The boys gave Anderson the thumbs up, explaining that they were older now and not "embarrassed" by her anymore.
"I was like, 'What? Are you serious?' But then I thought that's probably a good thing," Anderson said in a sit-down with ET.
"It's hard to compete with the Internet," Anderson continued. "And the girl next door doesn't exist anymore. She's taking selfies down her shirt, like, you know, there's no mystery over there anymore.
It doesn't have that same charm and innocence that it used to."
Earlier this month, the actress and activist revealed that she was cured of Hepatitis C after being diagnosed in 2002, and what a way to celebrate. Reuniting with Hugh Hefner was exactly what Anderson wanted.
"He's such a sweetheart and he's just been such a big part of my life," Anderson said.
"I had a rough few years where I felt a little insecure, 'cause you know everyone's getting older," Anderson admitted. "I thought, 'My gosh, I miss the Playboy days.' It was so glamorous, it was so chivalrous, there's so many people there that were so smart, and activism, and art.
"You know, I just kind of miss that whole crowd and us being these little giggling girls kind of running around the mansion half naked and trying to get everybody's attention."
The final nudie issues hits newsstands December 11th.
