AceShowbiz - Suzanne Somers knew exactly what she wanted for her 75th birthday. The acting veteran, best known for her portrayal as Carol Foster Lambert on "Step by Step", is still two years away from celebrating the milestone, but she has already planned to get naked for Playboy.
Speaking to Access Hollywood's Kit Hoover about her dream, the 72-year-old actress spilled on which photographer she would like to work with. "I would like Annie Leibovitz to shoot me nude for Playboy for my 75th birthday, OK? That's now on record," she openly shared her wish. "I'm gonna make this happen. This is gonna happen."
The "Three's Company" actress had already been featured in the adult publication twice. The first one was taken when she was 34 years old in 1980, while the second one was taken four years later. Speaking about the possibility of stripping down once again, she said, "Actually, that would be really cool."
Back in October 2019, the "A New Way to Age: The Most Cutting-Edge Advances in Antiaging" author sent internet abuzz with her "birthday suit" photo. The picture posted on Instagram displayed her seemingly posing naked while squatting behind some shrubs in nature. Her caption read, "Here I am at 73 in my Birthday Suit!!!"
Months later, the wife of Alan Hamel opened up about the picture when talking to "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy. "It got 168 million hits. But I wasn't naked," she clarified. "I was on the property with Alan and we're walking. I went, 'Wow, this grass is the same color as my hair.' I leaned down so that my hair would look like it was part of the grass."
"I dropped my top - I was all covered," she assured. "I didn't think it was a controversial picture. But it became controversial. And then I thought, 'Well, that's not bad.' Because I looked like I was naked, but I wasn't."
