My mother wanted me to pose for Playboy: Melissa Rivers
Actress Melissa Rivers says her mother Joan Rivers was angry when she turned down an offer to pose for Playboy magazine.
London: Actress Melissa Rivers says her mother Joan Rivers was angry when she turned down an offer to pose for Playboy magazine.
The 47-year-old TV producer recalled how Joan, the iconic actress and comedian, who died last year aged 81, felt "insane" when she turned down USD 500,000 to strip for the front cover of the men's magazine, reported Female First.
"My mother was so angry that I didn't want to do Playboy... She was insane that I wouldn't do it!
"I just said, 'No way.' We live in a digital world now. I don't need my son's buddies going, 'Dude, I've seen your mom's..."
Melissa, who produced the TV show "Fashion Police" on which her mother starred, said she cherishes the advice her mother gave on how to look good growing old.
"I'm definitely a fan of botox and fillers, and anybody who tells you they're not is lying. I don't want to turn into some old, scary looking person, but how far would you go? I don't know.
"My mother always said, 'It's better to have a new you getting out of an old car than an old you getting out of a new car."
