With Mario Lopez by his side, Hugh Hefner gave “Extra” a private tour of the infamous Playboy Mansion.
Hef talked to Mario about his recent breakup with Holly Madison, his new girlfriends, Jennifer Aniston's nude GQ cover, and who he wants on the next cover of Playboy. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Hugh on his split with longtime girlfriend, Holly Madison: “I was blindsided by the breakup…But Holly was looking for something more that I couldn’t give her. She was looking for marriage and children.”
Hugh on not being lonely for long:
“Within two weeks, a pair of twins arrived and turned out they were interested in being my girlfriends…Several girlfriends are easier to handle than one wife.”
Hugh on his favorite room:
“No question - the bedroom. I do my best work in the bedroom.”
Hugh on Jennifer Aniston’s nearly nude GQ magazine cover:
“This looks like the cover of Playboy. I’m much impressed by Jennifer. Is it just me or is Jennifer Aniston getting hotter?…Never seen her in this light before.”
Hugh on his book’s most shocking revelation:
“Probably an incident that occurred back in the late seventies where I almost swallowed a sex toy.”
Hugh on who he would like to pose for Playboy:
“Either Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johansson.”
Hugh on the possibility of Robert Downey Jr. playing him in a biopic:
“He’s a very good actor. Would be natural."
“Extra’s” interview with Hugh Hefner airs on Friday, December 19th but for more on this story, check out extratv.com.
Knives, bisexual romances, tattoos.
Despite being a mother of six, Angelina Jolie says her rebellious past still remains a part of who she is.
"I don't walk around feeling I need to apologize or explain myself," the 33-year-old actress tells December's Harper's Bazaar. "I am still, at heart – and always will be – just a punk kid with tattoos."
See how Angelina Jolie's looks have changed over the years.
She also says she'll only play characters on the big screen that she would ideally want to hang out with.
"I tell stories that are about the type of woman I'd want to meet," says the star, who plays the mother of a kidnapped son in her latest drama Changeling.
Look back at unforgettable photos of Angelina Jolie on the big screen.
"The type of woman where I think, even if it's silly characters I've played, like in Tomb Raider, there's something about her that will be fun for my daughters to see one day," she adds.
She says she and beau Brad Pitt explain the difference between the big screen and real life to their children.
"Listen, my kids play video games. I let them play with toy soldiers. We don't take war and violence lightly, but we don't hide it from anybody," she says. "We say, 'Mommy and Daddy have movies where we play these characters, but there's real death and violence in the world.'"

Jolie recently admitted that she bought son Maddox, 7, some knives.
"My mom took me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12," Jolie said in November's W magazine. "And I've already bought Maddox some."
UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie made her first post-twin trip to Afghanistan earlier this week to appeal for more support for refugees who are returning home.
Watch the above footage (courtesy of Entertainment Tonight) as she documents her trip, which ran from Tuesday to Thursday.
At one point, she gets choked up after witnessing the refugees' poor living conditions.
"When you ask them what they need, they just smile and say, 'Everything,'" Jolie narrates. "They have suffered so much, and yet the Afghan people remain, gracious, open. They have a quiet dignity."
Angelina Jolie may be gearing up for another installment of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. The movie would be based on the latest version of the video game, Underworld.
Sources say, "The producers would love to get Angelina back. This would be a far darker movie with more emphasis on storyline."
We heard rumors about Angie reprising her role a couple of years ago, and was supposedly going to jump into the role right after giving birth to Shiloh. But two years and two more babies later, still no Lara Croft.
Angie is currently in the U.S. for the first time since giving birth to her twins. She's in New York to attend the October 4th premiere of her upcoming movie Changeling.
Would you want to see Angelina in the role of Lara Croft one more time, or has she grown out of the role?
Noel Cruz is an amazingly talented man. He can take a regular 16-inch Coal Sybarite by Superdoll, remove the factory paint, and with nothing more than brushes, acrylics and sealers can transform the manufactured doll into an unbelievably true-to-life likeness of a celebrity. His Angelina Jolie version is stunning!
$3,350 stunning to one lucky, and crazy, eBay bidder. The doll came with two wigs and handpainted, sculpturally enhanced breasts, and without tattoos, which can be added, handpainted by Cruz, for $15 to $35 each depending on the tattoo, and without clothes! Yep, some one received Angelina Jolie naked in the post for only $3,500 plus shipping and handling.
Savvy entrepreneur Cruz also recreates celebrity trademark clothes… sold separately!
The recreations of Jolie photo shoots are almost as impressive as the creation of the doll. Noel Cruz is incredible with detail. The fully articulated doll looks a little freaky sometimes, as visibly jointed dolls do, but the guy obviously puts painstakingly intricate detail into his art.
I’m Not Obsessed encourages Cruz on their website to make Brad Pitt as Ken next. A commenter on the site says they have heard that’s exactly what he’s doing, as well as small dolls as Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne. For somewhere between $15,000 and $25,000 you could have the Brangelina Brood in your home everyday!
Nick Cruz’s website, www.ncruz.com, shows more of his incredible work. His Daniel Craig, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Poppins, and Scarlett O’Hara are mindblowing!
Cruz has no items for sale on eBay at the moment, but I’m adding him to my favorite sellers and watching for that update in my inbox!
i know this is old..but i felt like posting so..hehe
Angelina Jolie may have her hands full caring for her newborn twins and four other children, but she still finds time for another passion — fashion! Jen Rade, Jolie’s longtime stylist, told PEOPLE at W’s New York Affair this week that despite Angie’s large brood, it’s not hard to get the mother-of-six on the phone to discuss her sartorial options. “No, [it's not tough], but she’s definitely got a lot going on. Any time you talk to her there’s a lot of kids in the background, that’s for sure.” Rade is working with Jolie to dress her for Changeling junket later this month, as well as the film’s premiere October 4th. “It’ll be her first big US appearance since having the babies,” Rade says. “I feel some pressure, but I think I can do it. We’ve been doing it for five years together.” Is it a challenge finding clothes that work for Jolie’s post-pregnancy body? “Not really. She’s breastfeeding so the boobs are bigger, but no. It’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it.” Rade describes Jolie’s style as “kind of classic with a rock and roll edge” and says she loves working with Angelina because “she’s funny and smart.” Plus, she’s a fab mom: “She loves it — or else she wouldn’t do it.” – Reporting by Kathy Ehrich Dowd.http://offtherack.peoplestylewatch.com/2008/09/09/angelina-jolies-stylist-dishes-on-her-post-baby-style/
Angelina Jolie not only looked hot in the movie Wanted, but she was also a total badass. But the British think she might be just a little too violent in the film, because they've banned all the movie posters in England. The promo shot features Jolie Sprawled across a car wielding a gun. Doesn't sound like anything we haven't seen before, but apparently the Brits think otherwise.
A statement from Britain's Advertising Standards Authority reads: "We acknowledged most viewers would understand the posters reflected the content of an action film. However, we considered that because the ads featured a glamorous actress, action poses, several images of or related to guns and aspirational text, they could be seen to glamorize the use of guns and violence. We concluded they could be seen to condone violence by glorifying or glamorizing the use of guns. We have seen a proliferation of complaints from the public about advertising which is seen to condone gun or knife crime. We are responding to the level of consumer concern."
We don't see the difference between that movie poster and most thriller or violence-based movies. Do you?
There’s a questionable story that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to have a housewarming party to better ingratiate themselves to the neighbors. They were said to be angering the locals in Brignol, France, where they’re currently living on a leased 880 acre estate. There was a bloody altercation between two paparazzi photographers hiding in the woods on their property and their security guards about a month ago. E! News reported shortly afterwards that the residents of their sleepy village weren’t happy with the way the couple was monopolizing the local police and attracting outsiders wielding camera. E! hasn’t had the most accurate stories about Brangelina in the past, but given the facts it’s only reasonable to assume that people in Brad and Angelina’s newly adopted town aren’t happy with all the increased activity and attention after they arrived.
Bang Showbiz reports that Brad and Angelina are going to try and make amends by throwing a party:
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are set to host a party for their neighbors.
The Hollywood couple - who recently welcomed twins into the world - are hoping to become fully integrated into the community of the French village of Brignol by throwing the soiree.
Brad and Angelina live close to Johnny Depp and his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis, who own a vineyard just north of St. Tropez.
A source told Britain’s Daily Express newspaper: “They want to get stuck into village life and become real locals. Brad said they want to be like Johnny and Vanessa, who live a quiet life in nearby Plan de la Tour.”
The stars were said to have been encouraged to host the event by the mayor.
The source added: “They have met town officials who have said it is a tradition for newcomers to host an early evening drinks reception for everyone who lives in the village.”

This could possibly be true. Brad met the head of the local wild boar hunting club and assured him that the annual hunt could be conducted on his property without a problem. They seem like they’re trying to make nice with their neighbors and a housewarming party would go a long way towards changing people’s feelings about them.
My knowledge of French housewarming custom is based on those “Year in Provence” books and what little I could google, but it seems traditional to hold a housewarming party there. When I lived in the German part of Switzerland it was customary to have a housewarming party once you were settled so that you could get to know your neighbors. It’s probably similar in France and the neighbors should appreciate a nice party to meet the famous family. As long as all the guests are well vetted and no imposters are able to get through. You know the paparazzi and media are going to try and pull something if the Jolie-Pitts are having a party. There were dudes dressed in camoflague holing up in the surrounding forest, they’re sure to try and figure out a way to get inside if there’s an opening.
