If you're a famous actress who also happens to be smoking hot, it's only a matter of time before Playboy comes looking for you. Over the years, there were numerous famous stars who've taken it all off for Playboy, all lured by the chance of greater fame and millions of dollars. Movie stars, TV stars, famous athletes and supermodels, women from all different walks of life have taken it all off for Playboy. The magazine's been around since the '50s but it wasn't until the '80s, when celebrities such as Bo Derek and Kim Basinger cashed in and took it all off. These days, it's considered an honor to be asked to pose naked for Playboy, and all sorts of famous women, as well as those who wanted to be famous, have taken it all off over the years.
But there are still a lot of famous women out there who are just not having it. No matter how much money Hugh Hefner and his minions offer, they're not going to put out. Some of these women have even been seen naked under other circumstances, while others have teased us with a ton of skin over their careers, but they still aren't going to do it. All I can say to that is "Come on! Why not?" Maybe if we beg, they would do it? It couldn't hurt to try.
Here are 19 smoking hot celebrities that said no to Playboy.
19 Jessica Alba
According to a story in the New York Daily News, "Jessica Alba may have looked smokin' hot on the cover of the March 2006 issue of Playboy, but she was not happy to be there. The magazine obtained a photo of her and ran it on the cover without her permission. Hugh Hefner later sent the actress a personal apology and pledged to donate money to her favorite charities." Seriously, Hugh, really? That's obviously not cool at all. It isn't like you can just pretend someone wants to be in Playboy without her permission. Come on, man.
18 Katy Perry
Katy Perry is obviously someone who would be hit up by Playboy and Hugh Hefner. Are you kidding me? Who wouldn't want to see her without any clothes on? Even if you aren't that attracted to her, which obviously would be kind of odd, wouldn't you want to see her just out of curiosity anyway? Well sorry, you're out of luck. She said in an interview that even though she was stacked, she wasn't going to pose for Playboy or any other magazine in the nude. I have to say that this whole thing is rather sad, but I'll get over it. Maybe.
17 Jennifer Love Hewitt
The farthest that Jennifer has ever gone when it comes to nudity is that totally hot tanning scene in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Jennifer has never gone any further with nudity, even though Playboy has come calling on more than one occasion. I have to say when one has as nice a body as she does, it's hard to stop asking for her to take it all off, but hey, Hugh... sometimes, no really does mean no, even though you obviously never figured that out from your personal life. Jennifer Love Hewitt in Playboy is simply not going to happen.
Let's be honest, shall we? If right now, J-Woww, whose real name is Jennifer Farley, wanted to pose for Playboy, I'm sure they would have no interest in it whatsoever. That ship has totally sailed for good; she just doesn't have that star power anymore. But at one point, she and the rest of the cast of Jersey Shore were some of the most popular and most famous stars in the entire world. She and Playboy ended up negotiating for her to be in the magazine, and she even announced a few times that it was going to happen, but she didn't follow through. I'm sure she has more than enough money anyway.
15 Stacy Keibler
Obviously, Stacy Keibler would be a nice catch for Hugh Hefner and Playboy, but it doesn't seem like it's ever going to happen. Stacy is an actress and is also well known for her wrestling career, and not only that; she's also super smoking hot, so it makes sense that she's been chased down by Playboy numerous times. They've made far more than one offer to her to appear nude in the magazine, but she's always said no to them. This means that apparently, she has some morals, but it also could mean numerous other things. Like maybe she's shy? Doubtful for sure.
14 Sarah Michelle Gellar
Let's be honest here for a second. Is there anyone out there who wouldn't want to see Buffy the Vampire Slayer totally naked? I know I would, and if your girlfriend is not looking over your shoulder, I'm sure that you'd admit that you would, too. But Sarah Michelle Gellar was always too conservative to pose nude for Playboy, no matter how many times she was asked. And when you think about it, does it really make sense that she would do that? Buffy was always way too cool to be taken advantage of, and it seems the same goes for Sarah Michelle Gellar.
13 Jennifer Aniston
So, it goes without saying that at some point, Hugh Hefner and Playboy tried to get Jennifer Aniston to pose nude for them. I mean, seriously, if you were Playboy, wouldn't you try to get her to pose for you? I know I would. But she said no. Hefner offered her 4 million bucks for posing for Playboy and also offered her a sales incentive that meant that she might make 10 million for doing it, and she still blew him off. I suppose that if you're as rich as she is, then it wouldn't have mattered a whole lot. Still, we can always dream. Maybe she'll change her mind.
12 Cheryl Cole
You may not have heard of Cheryl Cole, but if you look at a few photos of her, I can guarantee you that you would almost certainly want to see her without any clothes on. She's a rather big deal in England and is a television personality and also was a member of the band Girls Aloud. Yes, I know that name is totally awful, but still, she's super hot, and that's why she was offered a nice lump of cash to pose nude for Playboy. She turned it down, which means she has much higher morals than many women who have posed for this particular magazine, but it also means that she has a much smaller bank account. To each her own, I suppose.
11 Britney Spears
Way back in the day, Britney was offered a million bucks to take it all off for Playboy way back in 2004, but the word on the street was that she turned it down to keep up her wholesome image, not that her nice and wholesome image lasted all of that long. But now, it seems that she's changed her mind and would totally love it if she could appear in Playboy. Britney, come on now... are you kidding me? First of all, your body looked just a tad bit different way back in the day; no one really wants to see you naked all that much anymore. I bet even K-Fed doesn't.
10 Heid Klum
There's no doubt that Heidi Klum is a very beautiful woman, one that pretty much any red-blooded American man would love to see in her birthday suit, at least Hugh Hefner and Playboy thought so. They offered her a million bucks, but Heidi said that the only way that she would do it is if they did an artsy black-and-white photo shoot and gave her a female photographer to work with. Playboy said no to all of that, and so, the shoot never happened. This is obviously a tragedy, as Playboy didn't get the shoot they wanted, and we didn't get to see Heidi buck naked.
9 Rachel Weisz
Rachel is a very lovely woman who also happens to have a pretty killer body, so one would think that she might be a good fit for Playboy. She didn't do it, though, apparently because she doesn't like how Playboy airbrushes their models. She's way more about women looking natural, and she doesn't feel like Playboy gives that option. Okay, I get it, Rachel... Playboy is super trashy, and you aren't, so you weren't going to pose naked for them. All of that's cool, but the thing is, we all wanted to see you without any clothes on. Is that really so wrong?
8 Kate Hudson
So, if you have a pulse and find women attractive, you probably wouldn't mind seeing Kate Hudson in Playboy. I mean, why not? Her mother is Goldie Hawn, and she did it way back in the day. But for some reason, Kate always said no to Playboy's offers, although now that I think of it, maybe her mom posing for Playboy has something to do with her saying no. I don't know... maybe when Kate was growing up, her mom posing nude for a bucketload of money wasn't something that she was all that happy about. Just a guess, but I have to say I bet it's not all that far off.
7 Kylie Minogue
Kylie is the type of star whom one wouldn't expect to be in Playboy, but that doesn't mean that they wouldn't give it a shot. I mean, why not? They're Playboy, for crying out loud. She was actually offered close to 4 million dollars to do a Playboy spread, but she turned them down, which shows how much money she has. When you think about it, the situation seems to be that the less likely someone is to do Playboy, the more money they offer them. So, them giving Kylie that much money was really kind of a Hail Mary that totally failed. Good try, though, Playboy.
6 Christina Aguilera
Alright, let's be honest... who wouldn't want to see Christina Aguilera naked? Okay, I guess most of you don't. To be honest, I really don't want to either. But at one point, it seems like a lot of people did, at least enough so that Playboy asked her to be in the magazine numerous times, but every time they asked, she said no. This is one of those things that seemed like a big deal at the time, and now, it's kind of like one of those "Thank God" things. I guess she's kind of hot in a way, but to be honest, who really wants to check that out? Not me.
5 Ashley Greene
Many of you might know Ashley Greene from her time on the show Twilight, which is exactly the reason she didn't do Playboy when they asked her to. She said that many of her fans were young, so she didn't want to do a spread in the magazine. I suppose that's a good thing for her to do; she does want to be a good role model for her young fans. Good on you, Ashley. At the same point, come on, Ashley! Just do you. There's no reason to worry about such things. Just take a boatload of money, and take off all of your clothes. I promise it's okay.
4 Lauren Graham
If you've ever watched The Gilmore Girls, I'm sure that at least once, you were like "Man oh man, I really would like to see Lauren Graham naked." If you tell me you never thought that, I'm thinking you're a total liar. You know who else wanted to see her naked? Hugh Hefner, of course. As a matter of fact, is there anyone in the world that Hugh Hefner doesn't want to see naked, and if so, what does she look like? Hefner has made a ton of money by being a total dog, but apparently, Lauren didn't want to play his game. Good for her. Not for us.
Now, seeing Rihanna naked for Playboy would probably be a lot of fun, but she's such a spoilsport that she refused to do it. Her reasoning behind it was that she would never take it all off for money; if she was going to do it, she would do it for her own personal reasons. Yeah, Rihanna, that's cool and all, but what personal reasons would you have to do it other than money? I have to say that most people don't just decide to do something like that for fun, but what can I say? Rihanna has never been one who's really done what the rest of the world does.
2 Paris Hilton
Paris has spent a fair amount of time at the Playboy mansion, and a lot of people have seen her naked before, so why not take a big wad of cash and pose for Playboy? Well, because Paris obviously doesn't need money a whole heck of a lot and also because she still likes to pretend that she's a classy rich chick and not the total trash bag that she acts like. While a lot of people tend to disagree, personally, I think Paris is pretty hot, and I wouldn't have minded seeing her in the pages of Playboy at all, but now that she's all grown up, it will never happen.
1 Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham is obviously smoking hot and has stayed pretty well known, mostly because of her relationship with David Beckham. She has a pretty amazing body and always has, so obviously, Hugh and Playboy came calling at one point, but she turned them down. Why? Well, supposedly, because The Spice Girls have a strict code of honor, but I imagine it also is that she doesn't need the money at all. When you can make a million sitting on your butt all day, then why make a million by stripping off your clothes? However you slice it, the whole thing is a bit of a tragedy for the rest of us.
