Traditionally, people celebrate their birthdays by enjoying a lovely meal, unwrapping a few gifts and knocking back a few glasses of Champagne.
But Jenny McCarthy, an “American model, comedian, actress, author, activist, and game show host” as her Wikipedia page describes her, decided to mark the occasion by taking off all of her clothes and posing for Playboy for the fourth time.
“I’m really proud of it,” McCarthy, who turns 40 later this year, told People. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They’re really elegant. It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.”
The “classy,” “elegant” (not to mention Photoshopped) cover photo features McCarthy wearing strategically placed fingerless, fishnet gloves and thigh-high suede boots, which clearly and elegant photo shot doth make.
The July/August issue of Playboy hits newsstands this week.
