Jenny McCarthy is not old by any means, but with so much attention given to youth as a major ideal in Hollywood, she stepped outside the norm recently when she announced that she would be posing nude for Playboy - at nearly 40!
McCarthy, 39, made her Playboy debut back in 1993, at the tender young age of 20 - an age more common to the women posing in the magazine. Now, however, she wants to show everyone that women can be sexy well past their twenties - even more so - and is taking to the pages again for the July/August 2012 issue.
"Why should only 20 yr olds be considered sexy?" she tweeted. "Let's (hear) it for the MILFs."
Luckily for McCarthy, she's not alone in thinking that women of a certain age deserve to be celebrated for all their (au naturale) beauty. In fact, an overwhelming majority of magazine readers surveyed agreed that Jenny McCarthy has gotten better with age, rather than the opposite that people are frequently led to believe!
