Yesterday, we got our first eyeful of hot mama Jenny McCarthy gracing her sixth cover of Playboy. And no big surprise: The 39-year-old TV personality/activist/mother/girlfriend of NFL star Brian Urlacher looks goooood. Actually, given how confident and bold she comes off in both the pictorial and the interview -- calling herself "this really strong chick" -- she's looking more stunning than ever. Yeah, even more stunning than when she made her covergirl debut for Hef at 21!
You know what I'm talking about. It seems like as soon as a woman makes her way to the "other side" of 35, she's relegated to mommy and more conservative roles. And geeze -- a Playboy cover at almost 40?! Usually seen as a desperate play to stay relevant. But Jenny's basically crushing those ridiculous stereotypes. Take that, Hollywood!
Sure, she's exceptionally gorgeous, was clearly blessed with extraordinary DNA, and we'd be foolish to think Playboy didn't use some good ol' PhotoShop to make her look as flawless as she does on the new cover. All of that aside, six covers and nearly two decades later, Jenny's still ROCKING it! Proving a woman isn't "past her prime" -- ugh, I hate that expression, don't you? -- because she happens to be nearing 40, 50, even 60 these days.
And while I wouldn't put a bit of Botox or a ever-so-slight boob lift past her, I'll bet her glam factor has a more to do with what's going on inside than out. She admitted not that long ago that being in a relationship with depressive Jim Carrey took a toll on her emotional well-being. But it's a whole new world for her these days, now that she's with Urlacher and they're apparently having insane sex. She told Playboy:
This point in my life has been the most fun, sexual extravaganza. The orgasms are night-and-day better. I feel 100 billion times more sexual, and that comes out in this pictorial.
Hey, there's definitely some truth to the idea that when you feel sexy, you look sexy. And that you can get even hotter as you age, because you're more comfortable in your skin. Obviously, at 39, Jenny's happier, healthier, and more self-assured than ever before. So, really, it's no wonder she's even more beautiful to boot.
What do you think of Jenny's latest Playboy cover? Do you believe women get hotter with age and bolstered confidence?
