Heidi Montag. Last week, Heidi Montag promoted the release of her hyped spread in Playboy magazine. If you can call it promoting. She was pretty much Hollywood's smutty paperboy ready with a stack of magazines on any red carpet she was allowed on. Montag seemed more than excited to flaunt her plastic assets for Hef and the gang, however there was a little glitch: She didn't get naked. That's right, everyone's least favorite blonde didn't show off all her manufactured goods.
We don't get why Levi Johnston is famous. Someone needs to explain this one to us. He got a Vice-Presidential candidate's teenage daughter pregnant and has subsequently gone on an obviously revenge-fueled media blitz. And it's all culminating with his seminude photo shoot for Playgirl magazine. Then, hopefully, Levi will go away unless Kathy Griffin decides to keep using the boy-toy for her own publicity stunts. Playgirl seems like the perfect career move for someone whose 15 minutes of fame are almost up.
Burt Reynolds sparked a trend when he posed nude for Cosmopolitan in He blazed a trail for male nudity. Gentleman stars of his caliber posing nude was unprecedented at the time , but the world has become much more comfortable with seeing famous men naked over the years. And thank God! Now, naked stars are everywhere!
Most of these stars understood that showing a bit of skin could make you a household name, and played up their good looks for that career boost. Unfortunately, not all the stars on this list wanted their photos published. The draw for adult industry magazines to publish celebrity nudes is obvious.
