Tara Reid`s Playboy Cover Unearthed
The January/February 2010 cover of Playboy magazine has been unearthed, showing Tara Reid baring her cleavage and stomach for the lens. Sporting heavy eyeliner, the 34-year-old actress is seen donning a black bra under her white shirt, black panties, and also a matching fishnet.
In addition to the cover shot, Reid also takes her clothes off for a six-page nude pictorial shot by famed celebrity photographer Sheryl Nields. In an accompanying interview with the men`s magazine, she says she is "at the perfect age to do this."
She, moreover, addresses her wild past, telling Playboy "I wouldn`t change anything that`s brought me here. I`ve grown up a lot, and it`s time for people to see who I am. I lived a lot of years in the public eye. But if you look at me now, that`s not who I am anymore ... I`m not Girls Gone Wild anymore."
"I`m relaxed," she continues saying of her nowadays life. "I`m a young woman with confidence ... At the end of the day, I go to sleep knowing who I am ... I`m happy with my life now, and I`d like to keep it this way."
News of Tara Reid posing nude for Playboy was first reported by In Touch Weekly in October. At that time, the magazine confirmed the actress already "posed entirely nude for the popular magazine at a private residence on October 7 in Santa Monica, Calif."
Reid herself told New York`s WPIX in an interview last week that she poses topless for Playboy to show the world her blotched plastic surgery she had back in 2004 has been fixed. "I got it fixed and now I`m OK and I want people to know I`m OK. I`ve had it done for the last five or six years, but people only want to show the old pictures. It`s so unfair. That`s part of the reason why I did Playboy, to show people, `Right, look at me. This is how I look now`," so she said as being quoted by E! News.
