    Default 'Playboy' hits back at Jessica Alba

    American men's magazine Playboy has fired back at JESSICA ALBA's claims they implied she had posed naked by placing her on their front cover, insisting many A-list stars have graced the page without appearing nude in the publication.

    The SIN CITY beauty's lawyers sent Playboy a threatening letter last month (23FEB06) after the mag published an promotional image of a bikini-clad Alba from her 2005 movie INTO THE BLUE on the front of its March (06) issue.

    Alba claims the choice of front cover insinuates she appears nude or semi-nude in the magazine.

    She said, "Playboy has violated my personal rights and blatantly misled the public, who might think I had given them permission to put me on their cover when I didn't."

    However, Playboy insist they placed her on the cover because she won a readers poll as being the "sexiest star of the year" and she is among other stars who grace the cover, but do not pose naked.

    Playboy spokeswoman LAUREN MALONE says, "Many celebrities have appeared on the cover of Playboy, but not nude, including CLAUDIA SCHIFFER, PARIS HILTON, GOLDIE HAWN, RAQUEL WELCH, BARBRA STREISAND, BROOKE SHIELDS and DONALD TRUMP."

    I would be so pissed off if I were Jessica Alba, what Playboy did is wrong. But I guess it is one of the downfalls of being famous.

    I agree with Alba. It does led people to think she is nude inside.

    I don't see what the problem is. It's free publicity, as far as I'm concerned. And unless she's trying to uphold some wholesome image, who cares if it's misleading to her fans??

    ETA: The only ones who should be upset are those who buy the mag expecting to find nude pix of Alba inside.

    You must've missed the point. Alba is mad because she's on the cover, but she didn't give an interview, and she didn't pose nude. So she's not "in Playboy" so to speak.

    She has every right to be pissed and I hope Hefner croaks soon, he disgusts me and so do his hookers.

    It should be, the women accept $ for sex. Admitted hookers are more empowered imo.
