Pamela Anderson appears nearly naked on the cover of what will be Playboy magazine’s last issue containing nude pictures.

Pamela Anderson Covers ‘Playboy’

“I got a call from [Hugh Hefner‘s] attorney who said, ‘We don’t want anybody else. There’s nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?'” Anderson told Entertainment Tonight earlier this week.

Anderson was an obvious choice for the issue, as she’s appeared within the pages of Playboy more than any other woman. In total, Anderson has featured in 15 pictorials, and landed on 14 Playboy covers. The first time she covered Playboy, Anderson was just 22 years old.

Anderson talked about her first time posing for Playboy in the interview that will accompany the slew of pictures of her that will appear in the magazine’s January/February double issue.

“The photographer shot me in one roll of film because I was nervous and throwing up,” Anderson told Playboy contributor and actor James Franco. “But, then I saw the pictures, and from there it was hard to keep my clothes on! I was painfully shy before, but then it clicked in my head that nobody cares what you look like naked except you. People are more concerned about themselves and their own flaws.”

Anderson also weighed in on the public’s estimation of her attractiveness. The former Baywatch star claims that while she doesn’t necessarily think of herself as a classic beauty, she does sense that she’s a natural at conveying her own sensuality.

“I don’t think of myself as beautiful, but I know I have a deep, sensual drive,” she said. “People respond to that more than physicality because your spirit never ages. I’m a bit of an exhibitionist, and I like being playful and having fun.”

For Anderson, returning to the cover of Playboy felt like an obvious decision due to more than just her standing as the magazine’s leading covergirl. She also has a special connection to the Playboy Mansion.

“I don’t want to get too detailed,” she said. “But I’m sure one of my sons was conceived there.”

The issue hits newsstands Dec. 11.
